Alumni notebook: Roenicke settles in with Lookouts

Here’s a look at how some athletes with local ties fared recently at the college level:


Josh Roenicke (Nevada Union, ’01); (Chattanooga Lookouts) – Roenicke is starting to settle in with the Lookouts as he earned his second and third saves with the team this week on back-to-back nights.

The week started out a little rough on July 1 as Roenicke (1-1) was tagged with his first loss in a 1-0 loss to Carolina. Roenicke gave up one run on two hits with a strikeout in his one inning of work.

Roenicke, however, returned to action Thursday with a perfect performance in a 4-3 victory over Mississippi. He gave up no runs, no hits and no walks for the save. Roenicke then returned to the mound Friday in a 3-1 win over Mississippi, giving up one earned run and no walks on two hits, which was good enough for his third save with the double-A Chattanooga team.

Roenicke’s ERA with the Lookouts is now 2.25 for the season.

Robby Alcombrack (Bear River, ’06); Gulf Coast League Indians (Cleveland Indians) – Alcombrack had a good day on Friday, going 2-for-3 from the plate with an RBI and a run scored in a 7-4 victory over the Tigers. Alcombrack hit a double and a single.

Alcombrack struggled the rest of the week, going 0-for-2 with a sacrifice fly and an RBI on Monday, 0-4 in a 4-3 win over the Phillies Wednesday, 0-2 as a pinch-hitter and catcher Thursday in a 7-2 loss to the Tigers and 0-3 with a walk Saturday in a 4-3 loss to the Blue Jays.

Gary Daley (Nevada Union, ’03); Palm Beach Cardinals (St. Louis Cardinals) – Daley remains on the disabled list and didn’t see any action this week. The team endured four rain outs but still managed to squeeze in six games this week including doubleheaders on Tuesday and Friday.
