MOOSIC, PA – Chris Bootcheck admits what many people thought: he had serious doubts as to whether he would be playing baseball in 2013. He is, and now he's doing everything he can to make the most of the opportunity given to him.
On a night when the four Angels affiliates that played all got the same results as Tuesday, it was reliever Chris Bootcheck who took up the mantel for the Bees while starter Nick Green did the job for Arkansas. Rancho continues to scuffle despite Nate Sutton and Orem falls in extra innings for the second straight night even as they steal eight bases.
For Salt Lake and Cedar Rapids, it was shoddy work from the bullpen. On the other hand, the Travs and Rancho couldn't get their offenses going. In all stops through the system Tuesday though, the Angels' farmhands took a beating.
