PENSACOLA BLUE WAHOOS

RECORD: 33-31 (3rd South, -1.5), 67-66 overall AFFILIATE: Cincinnati Reds PROBABLE STARTER: RHP Wirfin Obispo (5-0, 2.16 ERA – 9th start) SETTING THE SCENE

HA HEATING UP

The Smokies visit Pensacola for their final series of the regular season as they open up a five-game set tonight.  In the only previous series between the teams, Tennessee took four of five in Kodak from July 30August 2. Since the start of 2009, the Smokies are 5228 (.650) against the Pensacola/Carolina franchise.  The Smokies enter today five games back of first-place Chattanooga with five games remaining and would need to sweep Pensacola and hope the Lookouts get swept at Birmingham to force a one-game playoff for the second-half title.

Jae-Hoon Ha has recorded multiple hits in six of his last nine games, including four times in the Smokies’ most recent series against Mobile. Ha finished that series 10for-20 with five extra-base hits and seven RBIs. Ha is hitting 134 points higher against southpaws (.375) than righties (.241) and is batting .310 since July 1.

LAST TIME OUT Logan Watkins’ walk-off home run in the bottom of the 10th inning lifted the Smokies past the Mobile BayBears , 6-5, in Tuesday night’s series finale at Smokies Park.  Trailing 3-1, Tennessee plated four runs in the seventh to take a 5-3 lead. Mobile scored a run in the eighth and tied it in the ninth when Ollie Linton led off with a homer off closer Frank Batista.  Smokies starter Austin Kirk allowed three runs (two earned) over seven innings, but did not factor in the decision. Batista (2-0) earned the win.  The Smokies took four of five from Mobile to finish their 10-game homestand with a 7-3 record.

#Bour4MVP Justin Bour leads the Southern League with 109 RBIs. He ranks third in doubles (36), fourth in hits (140), and seventh in batting (.289).  With 109 RBIs, Bour ranks second in all of minor league baseball and tops among players currently at the Double-A level or above. Angels farmhand C.J. Cron of the Inland Empire 66ers (High-A California League) has knocked in 123 runs.  Bour is on pace to finish the season with 113 RBIs. The Smokies franchise record is 114, set by Tim Giles in 1999. Former major leaguers Geronimo Berroa (108) and Carlos Delgado (102) rank second and third, respectively, in single-season RBIs since the Smokies franchise joined the Southern League in 1964.  In Tennessee’s most recent series vs. Mobile, Bour went 1-for-14 but drew eight walks in 22 trips to the plate. He has gone five straight games without an RBI for the first time since April 13-18.

WE MEET AGAIN Last time Tennessee faced Wirfin Obispo, the Pensacola right-hander struck out seven of the first 10 batters he faced, carrying a no-hitter into the fourth inning en route to a career-high 10 strikeouts on August 2 in Kodak.

WORTH NOTING  Twelve of Matt Szczur’s 24 hits since joining the Smokies have gone for extra bases.  As a pinch hitter this season, Mike Burgess is a teambest 8-for-14 (.571) with a .667 on-base percentage. He has reached base safely in nine of his last 11 pinch hitting plate appearances.  The only team in the SL with a better home record than the Smokies (41-29) is Jackson (41-24). However, Tennessee is just 27-38 away from Smokies Park

KEEPING HAMILTON IN CHECK In Tennessee’s only other series this season against the Blue Wahoos, speedster Billy Hamilton stole four bases in the five-game set. Hamilton finished that series 2-for-17 at the plate with three runs scored as the Smokies routinely played the infield in. Hamilton has swiped a minor-league record 154 bags in 127 games between Pensacola and High-A Bakersfield.

SMOKIES AND WAHOOS - INSIDE THE SERIES  The Smokies and Blue Wahoos are scheduled to meet 10 times during the 2012 regular season. Their first meeting (July 30) wasn’t until Tennessee’s 106th game of the year.  The Blue Wahoos played in Zebulon, N.C., as the Carolina Mudcats from 1991 through 2011 prior to moving to Pensacola.  Over the past three seasons (2009-11), the Smokies went 48-27 (.640) against the Mudcats. DATE H/R 7/30 H H 7/31 H 8/1 H 8/2 H 8/30 8/31 9/1 9/2 9/3

SCORE NOTES (10 TOTAL SCHEDULED MEETINGS IN 2012) W 6-3 Jokisch: CG; Smokies: five-run first inning W 3-2 Harman: four scoreless innings in first start of year W 4-2 Susp. (rain) in 4th (completed 8/1); Samson: 2-run HR in 5th W 1-0 Bour: walk-off HR (1st pitch of 7th); Beeler: 5 IP, 0 runs, 1 hit L 6-1 Wirfin Obispo: career-high 10 Ks; Smokies held to 2 hits

R R R R R

Tennessee pitchers had a string of 23.2 consecutive scoreless innings – a season high – snapped in the sixth inning on Wednesday, August 15 vs. Huntsville. That streak began on Friday, August 10 vs. Huntsville and carried through the weekend as the Smokies blanked the Stars on Saturday (2-0) and Sunday (4-0).  The Smokies have turned in three shutouts in August after posting just three shutouts over the first four months of the season.

WATCH OUT FOR WATKINS Logan Watkins leads the Southern League with 89 runs scored and ranks fourth in onbase percentage (.381). He has scored 27 runs over Tennessee’s last 26 games. Since June 1, Watkins is batting .314 with a .431 OBP. Five of his seven home runs this season have given the Smokies the lead.

DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE The Smokies have allowed a league-high 88 unearned runs this season while Pensacola has surrendered a league-low 46.

BUMP IN THE ROAD After converting 23 of his first 24 save chances, Smokies closer Frank Batista has blown three of his last four. Batista still leads the Southern League with 24 saves, however.  Each of those blown saves occurred thanks to a leadoff home run: Chattanooga’s Nick Buss on August 21, Mobile’s Brent Clevlen on August 25 and Mobile’s Ollie Linton on August 28.  In each of his last five save chances, Batista has had just a one-run lead to work with.  Prior to Batista’s blown save on August 21, the Smokies were 50-0 when leading after eight innings.

LAY DOWN THE LUMBER Smokies pitchers are batting .065 (8-for-124) this season.  Pitchers currently on the Smokies roster are a combined 3-for-106 (.028).  Prior to Dallas Beeler’s single on August 8 vs. Huntsville, a Smokies pitcher hadn’t recorded a hit since May 17 (Brooks Raley). Since Beeler’s hit, Tennessee hurlers are 4-for-22.

BULLPEN BRIEFS  A Smokies reliever has saved 47 of the team’s 68 wins. No other team has more than 43 saves. Six different Tennessee relievers have notched saves in 2012 with four different hurlers saving at least five contests.  The Smokies bullpen has allowed just six of 40 (15%) inherited runners to score in August. Compare that to 17% (3 of 18) in April, 50% (12 of 24) in May, 43% (19 of 44) in June, and 49% (17 of 35) in August.

MOP-UP DUTY Wednesday marked infielder Dustin Harrington’s third appearance on the mound for the Smokies. So far with Tennessee, Harrington has tossed 2.1 scoreless innings.  In seven career pitching appearances, Harrington has yielded just one run in seven innings (a 1.50 ERA).  So far this season, Tennessee position players have taken the mound on seven occasions. In addition to Harrington, Jonathan Mota fired two scoreless innings over two appearances and Nate Samson allowed two earned runs in two outings. Mota earned a win on April 23 vs. Chattanooga. Smokies position players own a 2.84 ERA (2 earned runs in 6.1 innings) in 2012.

THE BUDDY SYSTEM Smokies skipper Buddy Bailey won his 1,600th game as a minor league manager in Tennessee’s 5-1 victory over Jacksonville in game one of a doubleheader on July 6. Bailey ranks fourth among active managers in wins, joining Lakeland’s Dave Huppert, Orem’s Tom Kotchman, and Scranton/Wilkes-Barre’s Dave Miley in the 1,600 win club. Bailey notched his 300th Southern League win on July 22 at Chattanooga.

The Smokies finished the first half with a 35-35 record thanks to a furious charge in which they won 11 of the final 13 games of the half. On May 30, the Smokies were in last place in the North Division, a season-worst nine games below .500 (22-31) with 17 games left in the half. Tennessee finished the half tied with Huntsville for second place in the North. The Smokies took on the North Division-champion Jackson Generals 15 times (5-10) in the first half.

HA GOES DEEP IN FUTURES GAME Smokies outfielder Jae-Hoon Ha started in center field for the World Team at the MLB Futures Game on July 8 at Kauffman Stadium. The 21-year-old South Korea native went 2-for-2, lacing a two-run homer against Pirates’ farmhand Gerrit Cole, the top pick in last year’s draft.  Ha was joined in the World team starting lineup by Mississippi catcher Christian Bethancourt and Mobile outfielder Alfredo Marte while the U.S. team roster included INF Scooter Gennett (Huntsville), and pitchers Taijuan Walker (Jackson), Danny Hultzen (Jackson), and Tyler Skaggs (Mobile). Jackson skipper Jim Pankovits was part of George Brett’s U.S. coaching staff while Mobile manager Turner Ward assisted World manager Bernie Williams. Ha’s World squad lost, 17-5.  Ha was the only player from the Cubs organization to participate in the game. Recent players to represent the Cubs in the contest are outfielders Matt Szczur (2011) and Brett Jackson (2010).

OTHER INFORMATION  Coming out of high school, the Oregon native did not receive a scholarship offer from the University of Oregon and Oregon State only offered him a chance to walk on. “I was told I was too small and didn’t have the body type for big colleges,” Struck noted. Struck played one season at Mt. Hood Community College in Gresham, Ore. and received a scholarship offer to play at Hawaii, but decided to sign after being drafted by the Cubs in the 39th round in 2009.

THIS DATE IN BASEBALL HISTORY - AUGUST 30 1905 - Ty Cobb makes his major league debut, doubling off Jack Chesbro, as Detroit defeats New York 5-3. The double is the first of his 4,189 hits, a record topped by Pete Rose in 1985. 1910 - Tom Hughes of the New York Yankees pitched a no-hitter for 9 1/3 innings before giving up a single to Harry Niles of the Cleveland Indians. The Yankees lost 5-0, with Hughes giving up seven hits in 11 innings. 1986 - Tommy John, 43, and Joe Niekro, 41, pitched a doubleheader for the New York Yankees against Seattle to become the first 40-plus teammate combo to start a doubleheader since Sept. 13, 1933, when the Chicago Cubs’ Sam Jones, 41, and Red Faber, 44, pitched against the Philadelphia Athletics. John lost the opener and Niekro won the second game, 3-0. 1987 - Kirby Puckett goes 6-for-6 with two home runs in Minnesota’s 10-6 win over Milwaukee, tying the American League record for hits in a nine-inning game. Combined with yesterday’s 4-for-5, two-home run performance, Puckett has a major league-record-tying ten hits in two games.

HONORING MARK FORESTER On May 21, Smokies pitcher Trey McNutt and broadcaster Mick Gillispie visited Haleyville (Ala.) High School to present the Mark Forester Price of Freedom Scholarship to two of Haleyville’s outstanding students who embody Mark’s character and passion. Mark A. Forester was killed in action on September 29, 2010 in Afghanistan.

BEEN THERE, DONE THAT Prior to Texas Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton’s four-homer outburst on Tuesday, May 8 against the Baltimore Orioles at Camden Yards, the last two major league players to accomplish that feat were Carlos Delgado and Shawn Green, who were teammates with the Knoxville Smokies in 1993 when the team was a Toronto Blue Jays affiliate.  Only 16 players in MLB history have hit four home runs in a game while 21 perfect games have been thrown.  Delgado was the starting catcher on the 1993 Smokies squad, when he hit .303 and led the team with 25 long balls. His four-homer game came on September 25, 2003 with Toronto against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays.  Green batted .283 with four home runs during his season with the Smokies. He left the ballpark four times on May 23, 2002 for the Dodgers in a contest against the Milwaukee Brewers. Green accomplished the feat less than a month after Mike Cameron did likewise for the Mariners on May 2.

MOTA WHEN IT MATTERS Jonathan Mota (promoted to Triple-A Iowa on May 6) played a key role in two of Tennessee’s three extra-inning wins in 2013:  On April 23 vs. Chattanooga, Mota homered early in the contest and pitched a scoreless 12th inning, earning the win on the mound in a 5-4, 12-inning victory.  On April 29 at Jackson, Mota broke a tenth-inning tie with a two-run blast en route to a 5-3 Smokies win which snapped a five-game skid.

NO TIME TO REST The Smokies opened the 2012 season by playing 25 games in 25 days. The Smokies were rained out at Huntsville on April 17, but they made that contest up with a doubleheader the next day. They began the season with 40 games in 41 days.

NICK GATES PASSES Nick Gates, who covered the Smokies for the Knoxville News Sentinel for over 38 years, passed away on Monday, April 2 at his home in Knoxville, Tenn.  Gates began covering the Smokies, then the Knoxville Sox, in 1972 while attending the University of Tennessee. Over the next 38 seasons he would cover over 700 Smokies minor leaguers managed by 21 different Smokies managers.  The three-time Southern League Writer of the Year also covered the last five of the team’s Major League Baseball parent clubs, two championship title teams in 1978 and 2004, and called both Bill Meyer Stadium and Smokies Park home.  On August 28, 2010, the Smokies honored Gates with the naming of press row at Smokies Park as “Nick Gates Press Row.”

RECENT SUCCESS The Smokies enter 2012 having won three consecutive Southern League North Division titles. They finished last season 83-57 after going 86-52 in 2010.

SMOKIES TOP ORGANIZATION The Smokies were selected as the 2011 recipient of the John H. Johnson President’s Award, which is given annually to the “complete” baseball franchise -- based on franchise stability, and significant contributions to the community, its league and the baseball industry -- among over 160 teams. The Smokies took home the honor for the first time in franchise history and were the first Southern League team to garner the award since 1974. The award was presented at the Winter Meetings.
