It’s Monday, and the Osprey are already out hitting – with the Local Heroes Night Softball Game happening at 6 p.m., the teams are taking batting practice early so that they can make way for the real heroes – those people who protect and serve us on a daily basis by fighting fires and enforcing the law. And they play softball every year here on Local Heroes Night.
Anyway, here is the regular bit of information we share with you … the starting lineups. More notes are below the lineups.

Last Time Out:
Notes from the Nest:
On the Mound Tonight:
The Owlz will counter tonight with right-hander Pat Lowery, who will be one of two pitchers the Osprey will see, with the other being left-hander Michael Roth. Lowery (0-2, 10.80) had served as the starter in his first four outings, posting a 12.60 ERA in that role. As the second pitcher, which Lowery was in his last outing, he allowed two in 3 1/3 innings pitched at Billings on Wednesday. Roth (0-1, 10.80) made his Owlz debut in that Wednesday start at Billings, allowing three hits and two earned runs in 1 2/3 innings pitched. Roth was the 9th-round pick of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim out of the University of South Carolina – Roth was a teammate of current Osprey outfielder Evan Marzilli.
