Minor league game recaps -- July 29

The game between Single-A Frederick and Potomac was postponed tonight. It will be made up as part of a doubleheader tomorrow. The first game will begin at 5 p.m. and both are scheduled for seven innings.

Also, a quick note, I'll be on vacation from tomorrow until Aug. 9. My computer access will be limited during this time period, so I probably won't be able to post game recaps.

If you'd like to follow the teams while I'm gone, head over to

Henson, Guzman, Mahoney and Gamboa should be up at AAA very soon. Reimold has been tearing it up and Andino it better than Izzy or Lugo at this point. Trade Izzy and Lugo for a frozen Lemonade, and a couple pounds of sand, and get something somewhat decent for Luke. Then bring some suckas up! We can't ever be worse than we are now.

A lot of specialists claim that home loans aid people to live the way they want, because they can feel free to buy needed things. Moreover, some banks present bank loan for different persons.

If some people buy an essay or order essay for sale about this topic, this can be possible to have good quality.

A Baltimore native, Dan Connolly has been covering sports for 14 years, and baseball and the Orioles for 10 seasons, including the past six with The Sun. His first year covering baseball on a daily basis was Cal Ripken Jr.'s final season as a player. It's believed that is just a coincidence.

Steve Gould is an assistant sports editor for The Sun, overseeing Orioles coverage. The Columbia native joined The Sun as a sports copy editor in 2006 after graduating from the University of Maryland.

Peter Schmuck has been covering baseball for a lot longer than Steve Gould has been on this earth. He is now a general sports columnist, but has been a beat writer covering three major league teams (the Dodgers, Angels and Orioles) and also spent a decade as the Sun's national baseball writer.
