NWA game from 8-6-08

My family and I just returned from a road trip to go see the Naturals.  I thought I would post a few observations from the game we watched.  By the way the stadium is great.  We live in Tulsa so the difference between NWAs stadium and Drillers stadium was bigger than night and day.  There is not a bad seat in the house.  Lots of things to keep the little ones busy too.

Pimentel pitched very well.  Gave up a 1st inning homer to the second batter of the game but other than that was dominant.  Which I found suprising because his stats this year aren't good.  Got a lot of ground balls and struck out 8 in 7 innings.  He also faced a pretty good lineup.  Cardenas and Sean Doolittle (2 highly regarded prospects) went 0-8 with 2 so.

Offensively noone really stood out.  Maddox walked twice, was hit by a pitch, singled and scored 3 runs.  The outfield was ok. Defensively the infield D was pretty bad.  2 errors on by first baseman and I forget who had the other. 

Overall we had a great time and the Naturals won 9-4.  Midland had won 11 in a row so it was nice to get a w. 

Also read in the paper today that Plummer was suspended for DWI.  Brian McFall and Matt Peterson were with him.  I think it said they were pulled over around 3AM.  McFall became very belligerant and both Petterson and he were uncooperative.  They left via a taxi.  Plummer apologized for McFall and Petterson and was cooperative.  Hope they all learn a lesson.
