THE NEWBERG REPORT — MAY 14, 2007
Clinton third baseman Johnny Whittleman (.373/.462/.678) homered again tonight. It was his seventh.
Frisco righthander Doug Mathis (3-2, 1.14) took a loss but was outstanding once again, allowing only an unearned run over six innings.
Bakersfield catcher Taylor Teagarden (.391/.576/.761) hasn’t homered yet tonight, and hasn’t walked.
But it’s still just the second inning.
Mark Teixeira is hitting .417 and slugging .792 over the 12-game hit streak he’s in the midst of.
Robinson Tejeda has a sore forearm and will pitch Friday in Houston rather than make tomorrow’s Disney start.
First two innings this season: Opponents 70, Rangers 20.
I’m in the mood for Brandon McCarthy and the Rangers lineup to buck that trend tomorrow against Tampa Bay.
