Lineups and notes from Helena

First … Eric Groff doubled his RBI total against the Helena Brewers this season with a 2-homer, 3-RBI performance last night. He had just three RBIs in the 14 prior games between the two teams, and entered the series hitting just .232 against Brewers pitching.

Next… Did you know that the second strikeout the Osprey collect on the mound tonight will set the new team record? The 2005 staff collected 688 strikeouts, while this season’s version of the Osprey pitching staff has 687 Ks entering tonight. That’s also 13 from the never-reached-before plateau of 700 Ks. The staffs for Helena, Ogden and Idaho Falls could also reach the 700 mark, with the Chukars just 14 strikeouts behind the Osprey at the moment.

One more thing … Jon Griffin is having the night off. If that holds, look out tomorrow in Billings. On two occasions this season, Griffin has followed a day off with a two0-homer game.
