Weekend in Oregon

What a great weekend. The Beavers won the series against the Ducks. It was almost a clean sweep, but the Ducks managed to pull out an emotional and frustrating win over the Beavs on Saturday. The Beavers gave up a 2 run lead in the 8th, and the winning run in the 10th to lose 3-2. Jorge pitched on Sunday and got the win 8-1. He through 7 innings giving up 2 hits and 1unearned run. Jorge was very close to his maximum pitch count to end the 7th, and we were very surprised to see him come out to pitch in the 8th. He did his full warm up and just before the 1st pitch was thrown. Time was called and he was welcomed off the field with a standing ovation from the whole stadium. 13,500 of Both Duck and Beaver fans cheered together. It was pretty emotional. It was good to see him throw that well again. He has really struggled since the 2007 World Series. Go Beavs!
