Lancaster comes up just short against Lake Elsinore

The final from Clear Channel Stadium in Lancaster:

Lake Elsinore 30, Lancaster 0

The Lake Elsinore Storm, a Red Sox Padres affiliate in the California League, pounded the Lancaster JetHawks, a Red Sox affiliate, but missed the league record for hits in a game by one (they had 28) and runs in a game by four.

Two Lake Elsinore players, Matt Antonelli and Kyle Blanks, had six hits each.

Lake Elsinore hitting coach Max Venable was quoted as saying that the wind was blowing out. Which doesn't explain how Lancaster got just five hits.

Box score.

Lancaster outfielders Yahmed Yema and Bubba Bell were also hurt during a collision chasing a ball in the gap when the score was 22-0.

Mario Pena faced seventeen batters during his inning and two thirds.

Bob, I think you have the teams backwards. The Padres' affiliate is Lake Elsinore, and the Red Sox affiliate is Lancaster. At least I'm pretty sure Antonelli and Banks are recent Padres' draft picks; I could be wrong.

When I first moved to Elsinore in '99, they were affiliated with the Angels (and with the cheerleaders, mascots, and over-the-top promotions, that was obvious), then they became affiliated with San Diego. In my 4 years of living in Elsinore, I attended 15 games, the Storm lost every one of those games.

Hitting coach Max Venable?

More proof that them who can't, teach.
