Cody Thomas and Carlos Rincon make history

I don’t normally do individual minor league games unless they warrant special attention but the Loons had a quite a historical game last night. The Loons hit seven home runs last night but the more interesting part was that it was done by only three hitters.  Yeah, that is kind of cool but not as …

Forsythe has a triumphant return

For the first nine innings of last nights ballgame it looked like the Dodgers might have activated Logan Forsythe before he was ready.  Logan struck out four times in his first four at-bats out of the lead off spot, but when it really counted he struck for gold connecting on a double to drive in …
