Alumni Notebook: Roenicke fans 2 in loss
July 21, 2013
Josh Roenicke, a 2001 Nevada Union graduate and pitcher for the Minnesota Twins, appeared in just one game in a three-game series versus the Cleveland Indians after Major League Baseball’s All-Star festivities.
In Sunday’s 7-1 loss against the Indians, Roenicke completed the eighth inning and didn’t allow any hits or runs and struck two batters. Cleveland starter Justin Materson kept Minnesota’s bats silent as he flirted with a no-hitter until the seventh when he finally surrendered a double. The Twins finished with only two hits for the game but managed to take two out of three in the series.
The Twins (41-54) open a seven-game road trip against the American League West division and face the Angels beginning today.
Erik Flores (Nevada Union, ’05) Web.com Tour– Flores played in his seventh tournament of the year in the Midwest Classic at the Nicklaus Golf Club at LionsGate in Overland Park, Kansas and failed to make the cut.
In the opening round of Thursday’s golf action, Flores recorded a round of par 71 (E) where he had four birdies, two bogies and a double bogey. During Friday’s round, he dropped in three birdies, but also had two bogies and a pair of double bogies for a round of 74 (+3) to miss the cut (-1) by four strokes.
Flores has now made 3-of-7 cuts on the season. Next week, the tour heads to the Albertsons Boise Open at the Hillcrest Country Club in Boise, Idaho.
