IronPig Game Results 6/30/11- Pig Pen in Philly?

The Pigs lost to the Buffalo Bison tonight by a final score of 2 to 4.

Both Mayberry and Kratz homered tonight. Brummett got his second loss.

I haven’t lost faith by any means, but looking at Philadelphia’s roster compared to ours and the team is fielding a patchwork mess right now.

Tomorrow is another day.

The debut concert at Coca-Cola Park, The Bob Dylan Show, featuring Bob Dylan & his band, John Mellencamp and Willie Nelson was held on July 14, 2009, and featured a sell-out crowd of over 11,000 fans that was the tour’s top-selling show and sold-out over a month beforehand.

IronPig Game Results 6/28/11 – Shuffle Off to Buffalo

The Pigs got on the board in the 1st inning combining 2 singles, a double play and a wild pitch to score 1 run. They added two more with a Tagg Bozied home run in the 2nd. The Pigs would not score again until the 6th inning when Brandon Moss Hogg singled in John Mayberry. Jeff Larish added an insurance run in the 9th scoring Kratz on an RBI double. Tagg Bozied then singled in Larish to bring the score to 6-2. Mike Zagurski got a rare at bat and had a swing that brought back memories of John Kruk facing Randy Johnson in an All Star game years ago.

Ryan Feierabend had a decent outting. Ryan went 6 innings allowing 2 runs on 7 hits. He struck out 7 and walked only 1.

Zagurski got into trouble in the 9th allowing an RBI single to our old friend Bubba Bell. Michael “J-Phro” Schwimer came on to close out the game.

Final Score – Pig 6 Bison 3.
