Lineups for Game 1 in Helena, etc.

by Ben Catley

We’re behind schedule yet on time … go figure … here are tonight’s starting lineup for Missoula at Helena:

Missoula (7-8)
Chris Ellison LF
Josh Parr SS
Ryan Court 3B
Jon Griffin 1B
Eric Groff 2B
Tom Belza DH
Jeremia Gomez RF
Fidel Pena C
Justin Bianco CF
Robby Rowland RHP

Helena (8-7)
82 Robbie Garvey CF
16 Adrian Williams 2B
54 Nick Ramirez 1B
68 Parker Berberet DH
30 Max Walla RF
79 Mike Nemeth 3B
15 Yadiel Rivera SS
73 Douglas Elliot C
6 John Dishon LF
95 Eric Arnett RHP 

OK – other notes:
– With the Great Falls win over Helena last night, the Osprey could be at least in second place with a win tonight.
– While the Osprey are 4-4 on the road, they have won four of their last six games away from Ogren Park Allegiance Field.
– Former Osprey reliever Jose Valverde (2000) was named to the AL All-Star squad on Sunday. Valverde – who had earned back-to-back All-Star nods with the Detroit Tigers – is 2-3 with a 3.00 ERA and 20 saves – tied for third-best in the AL.

I have a bunch more in the note department, but we’ll have to save it for a post tomorrow afternoon.

Pre-game interview is with starting pitcher Enrique Burgos. By the way, a big thanks to Steve and Emma, for making sure I have a snack if needed during the game. Gotta love apples … cut-up, even.
