July 5-7, 1974, at Los Angeles

The Brewers last series leading up to the All-Star break is against the always dangerous, but lately scuffling, Los Angeles Spinners. The Spinners lost 6 straight to end June and have only won 2 of their last 10 games coming into this series. They have a middling offense but very good pitching. Their starting rotation is their greatest strength, with potential HOF'er Jose Santos, 1969 Pitcher of the Year Jason Wilson, and All-Stars Kerry Krieg (leading the MGL in ERA) and Jesse Hartong (2nd in ERA in the MGL), and Captain John Tegel a solid #5.

Brewers head scout Nick Meskill categorizes L.A.'s Avalon Park as being neutral, but to my eyes it looks like it at least somewhat favors pitching over hitting.

In game 1 it certainly looked that way, as the Brewers barely managed to eek out a 3-2 victory. Harry Lyerly struggled with a lack of control, walking 7 batters, but largely worked out of serious trouble, giving up 2 runs on just 2 hits in his 5 innings pitched. He got the win to improve to 6-6 and now has a more respectable 4.16 ERA. Lyerly also doubled in one of the Brewers 3 runs. The bullpen was once again spectacular- both Sam Pruiett and Jordan Stephens working 2 scoreless innings, with Pruiett getting his 2nd hold of the season (2.23 ERA) and Stephens his 6th save (2.72 ERA.) Bobby Erbakan (.317/.383/.500) was 3 for 5 in the game, scoring twice, and picking up his 6th stolen base of the season.

Game 2 was another low scoring affair, with the Spinners prevailing 3-1. Matt Helm didn't have a bad game- giving up 3 runs on 5 hits in 6 1/3rd innings, but took the loss to drop to 7-5 with a 2.84 ERA. The bullpen was excellent again but the offense couldn't get it going, collecting just 3 hits in the game.

More of the same in the rubber match as the Brewers lose 3-2 when the Spinners score a walk-off run in the 9th to break the 2-2 tie. Erik Sloan pitched a fine game for the visitors, lasting 7 innings, giving up 2 runs (1 earned) on 7 hits. Jaden Francis took the loss in relief, dropping to 2-1 with a 1.08 ERA. Bobby Erbakan (.319/.383/.500) went 2 for 4 in the loss and hit his 19th double of 1974. Josh Schaeffer (.307/.424/.406) also was 2 for 4 in the game.

With the Charlotte Sting remaining hot, the Brewers enter the All-Star break with just a 1 1/2 game lead. Brooklyn is also playing well and sits 6 games back in 3rd place, while L.A. is 9 games back in 4th place.

Yet another injury for the Roadrunners.

The Pittsburgh Roadrunners have been the most injury plagued team in the WPK this season and the injury bug struck again as they will be without the services of their young, slugging right fielder Bill Winchester for roughly the next month as he battles elbow inflammation.

SJL wins 1974 WPK All-Star game

Brewers reliever Jordan Stephens, in his first All-Star game appearance, gave up a solo HR to the first batter he faced- Boston slugger Joe Black- and although he then retired the next six batters he faced the damage had been done and the SJL won 4-3, with Stephens taking the loss.

Cheol-han Lee pitched a perfect first inning. Bobby Erbakan went 1 for 3 and drove in 2 of the MGL runs with his 5th inning single. Zacarias Martell would pinch hit for Erbakan in the 8th inning and the rookie catcher singled in his first All-Star at-bat. Ryan Rodgers also went 1 for 3 in the game and walked once. Joe McPhillips was held hitless in his two plate appearances. Mike Foster also failed to get a hit in his one late-game pinch-hit at-bat.
And Sam Pruiett, the other Brewer pitcher to appear in the game, earned a blown save when he allowed 1 run on 2 hits and a walk in the 6th inning.
