Talked to Taylor a few minutes ago … he’s relaxed and ready to go.

Not 100% sure about who will be on the Pre-Game show today. Likely to be manager Hector De La Cruz. It’s one of those things that has been pushed back for the moment due to some great Osprey news. More on that in an earlier post.

From the Game Notes:

DEEE-FENSE: The Osprey also had a hand in preserving the win with defense. Shortstop Josh Parr made two stellar plays, third baseman Ryan Court also helped out with the glove and arm, and Fidel Pena helped the Osprey recover from an error to get the final out in the top of the eighth, as the Missoula catcher backed up on a throw by Court to first, and, from the Helena bullpen down the right-field line, threw to second as Helena’s Doug Elliot tried to pick up a base on the miscue.

K-riffic: Osprey pitching has not only allowed Missoula to stay in every game this season, but they have taken advantage of Helena’s aggressive style at the plate. In the first three games of the season, Osprey pitchers have struck out 33 in 28 innings of work, including a season-high 12 on Wednesday. That equates to a strikeouts-per-9 innings pitched ratio of 10.61. To give you an idea of a full season, the average Osprey staff’s Ks per 9 IP is just over 8.00, and the club record was set in 2005 – a staff led by former Major League pitcher and Pioneer League Pitcher of the Year Greg Smith – at 9.14 K’s per 9 innings.

On the Mound tonight: Missoula will send out left-hander Taylor Siemens in the series finale tonight. Siemens was named Golden State Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Year, helping Cal Baptist win the conference regular-season title. Siemens was a two-time 1st team All-GSAC and Honorable Mention NAIA All-American, posting a 9-2 mark with a 2.93 ERA this past spring, striking out 91 batters in 101 1/3 innings pitched. The Brewers counter with right-hander Andy Moye, a 15th round pick in the 2011 MLB Draft by Milwaukee out of Georgia Southern. This past spring, Moye was 7-2 with a 2.39 ERA.
