Tuesday Game Notes/Lineup
What a win and start to the roadtrip last night as the Chiefs pounded out 13 hits, drew seven walks and scored 14 runs in a 14-3 win. The Chiefs are now over .500 for the first time this season and have their second winning streak of the season. The Chiefs are also 5-5 on the road this season with eight games remaining on the current roadtrip. Peoria needs to take advantage of a 5-13 Clinton team before meeting up with the top two teams in the division record wise on the rest of this roadtrip.
Eric Jokisch, became the fourth pitcher in the last seven seasons to earn his 3rd win of the season before May 1 with a career-best five innings last night. The Virginia, IL native is the subject of this TV piece with Jim Mattson of WEEK TV 25, the NBC affiliate in Peoria.
The Chiefs do get Richard Jones & Rubi Silva back in the lineup tonight. Jones has not played since the April 17 Sunday DH at Wisconsin with an injured ankle and Silva has missed four straight games with a sore hamstring. The Chiefs are without Pierre LePage tonight as his right (throwing) hand was stepped on in last night’s game and is sore today.
