Thursday Lineups from Ogden and distances …

by Ben Catley

First off, a big thumbs up to Osprey Vice President/General Manager Jeff Griffin for catching a bit of Osprey alumni update news for me. It will be revealed shortly both on here and on the Osprey website.

Second … we’re getting ready for what a couple of the members of the coaching staff call “a big game” for the Osprey, who are in a must-win mode tonight here in Ogden. With Billings still two games up in the Pioneer League North Division Standings, it’s become important for the Osprey to at least keep pace with the Mustangs, if not find a way to gain ground.

Thirdly … Jake Lamb’s home run. I will be tweeting a pic of where he hit it last night (@RadioBigCat on Twitter), and after some consulting with the coaches, it’s been estimated that the ball traveled 450 feet. There have been some impressive shots here (According to some of the locals, Ryan Howard, with Team USA, hit one on the roof of the same part of the building Lamb hit last night, which ended up in the second level of the parking garage, after bouncing on the street than runs between them.)

Fourthly … The rotations are set for this weekend’s series with the Idaho Falls Chukars. The Osprey will have one change in theirs, but first, the matchups:

Fri: RHP Yoimer Camacho vs. RHP Alec Mills
Sat: RHP Chris Thomas vs. RHP Ali Williams
Sun: RHP Ross Gerdeman vs. LHP Sam Selman

Thomas will take Jared Ray’s spot in the rotation until further notice, although pitching coach Gil Heredia was thinking it would be just one start, but nothing is for certain at the moment.

Anyway … here are the starting lineups for tonight. More to follow … although I will let you in on this at the moment, we’ll be on the air at 6:40, with the first pitch slated for 7 p.m., on AM 930 KMTP and online at
