Notes from the Columbia River

It was an easy trip up to the Tri-Cities this morning, as the Hawks left Memorial Stadium at 9 a.m. and rolled into the Red Lion Columbia Center at 12:30 p.m. – with the hotel keeping its streak of not having our rooms ready (they were hustling since they had a full house on Saturday night).

Ballpark here at Gesa Stadium is in great shape and it will be a nice night for baseball.

Been really impressed with the newcomers that have joined the Hawks, as Mike Hamann tossed two shutout innings yesterday, with Eddie Orozco tossing a scoreless inning on Thursday night.  Trey Martin looks like a player in centerfield and is everything that I was expecting out of him, while Bijan Rademacher (pronounced Rad-a-maker) went 4-for-5 yesterday and is hitting a smooth .625 through two games.

A season-high 16 hits last night for the Hawks, as every person in the order had at least one knock.

NOTE – the Hawks went from two Gonzalez’s to none after yesterday, as Eduardo Gonzalez was released and Gregori Gonzalez was sent back to the AZL-Cubs.

Coming up – Look for a long narrative on my thoughts on attendance in Boise and the NWL this year coming in the next 24 hours.
