GM’s notebook - Series 50 and 51

Magpies 9-3 Sacramento
Magpies 3-7 Sacramento
Magpies 8-1 Sacramento
Austin 5-3 Magpies
Austin 2-3 Magpies
Austin 2-4 Magpies

- Bob Miller had a career day at the plate (4-5, HR, 2 DBL, 6 RBI) as we won the first game in Sacramento to confirm our wildcard spot.
- We were the better side in the second game, but failed to take our chances, leaving 14 men on base.
- Miller was at it again in the rubber match, hitting 4-6. Del Hill (9 IP, 4 H, 1 ER) and Fernando Martínez (2-5, HR, DBL) were also very good.
- Philip Givens’s excellent day (8.2 IP, 9 H, 2 ER) against Austin looked like being in vain as we headed into the bottom of the 9th. But the previously quiet offense produced 3 runs from nowhere, Fernando Martínez getting the walk-off 2-RBI base hit.
- St. Paul still haven’t clinched the North Division. With 9 games remaining, we can’t catch them, but the Brown Bears, on a 7-game winning streak, can tie with the Rockets. However, the Rockets’ magic number is only 1.

These series: 4-2
Record: 93-60
Position: 3rd place, 10 GB from St. Paul
