  1. -Arrieta gave up 1 run in 5+ against the Pirates last night. He took a no decision to remain 8-7 on the year but shaved his ERA down to 4.40. Next scheduled start is next Friday at home against the Braves. -Cashner's first start with the BoSox didn't go all that well - he gave up 5 runs on 8 hits in 5 IP to take the loss. That drops him to 9-4 on the year and increases his ERA to 4.09. Next scheduled start is Sunday afternoon against his old team in front of their fans at Camden Yards. -Carpenter was put back on the 10-day DL, this time after fouling a pitch off his foot. -Young has really made the most out of what appeared to have been a short-term call up to the D'Backs. In his three starts, he's 3-0 with an 0.96 ERA and an 0.48 WHIP. Next scheduled start is Sunday afternoon against the Brew Crew. -Holaday went 1-3 in his start against the Padres on Wednesday - pushing his current hit streak to 8 and bumping his average up to .314 for the year -Cron was sent back down to Triple-A Reno by the D'Backs again.
  2. A few memorable 42s: Ty Summers Matt Panfil Carl Knox Ron Clinkscale Casey Pachall ended his playing days at TCU with 42 career TD passes A few bonus 42s: Jackie Robinson Jerry Stackhouse 42
  3. I may have told this story on here before, but I know someone who played in high school with his Dad. Said he was the most naturally & freakishly strong person he'd ever met. I've been impressed to see how Izaih has put on weight since getting to campus. He was in a walking boot at the spring game - I hope he's healthy coming in to fall camp.
  4. Indeed. I hope he's paying attention to what Gallo has been able to do this year in adjusting his approach at the plate.
  5. Our current 43: Izaih Filikitonga A few memorable 43s: Tank Carder Cliff Murphy Lindy Berry The Frogs shutout Kansas, 43-0, in 2017 A few bonus 43s: Don Perkins Cliff Harris 43
  6. -Jantzen Witte has extended his hit streak to 7 games for Triple-A Pawtucket (Red Sox) -Riley Ferrell has been promoted to Triple-A Round Rock by the Astros' organization. He tossed a perfect inning of relief with one strikeout in his debut for the Express. He's now got a cumulative 1.02 ERA in 13 appearances for 5(!) different minor league teams this year.
  7. A few memorable 44s: LaMarcus McDonald - I gave him a high 5 at Fuzzy's one time, back when they weren't a chain, were open 24/7 and didn't give an F about serving beers after 2am. Chris Manfredini - bonus Reeves Dalton appearance! Johnny Vaught - always remember to remind your Ole Miss friends that their stadium is named for one of ours. Big Game Howie Darius Anderson's 3rd TD run of the day, coming with 2:37 left, was the nail in the coffin of TCU's 44-31 win in Stillwater in 2017 A few bonus 44s: Robert Newhouse Ken Hill, Sr 44
  8. A few memorable 45s: Sammy Baugh September 18, 2010: TCU 45, Baylor 10....and it wasn't even that close. We were up 35-3 at halftime, and the trash-talking Baylor fans in my section left at the end of the 1st quarter. Afterward, Baylor QB and Jar-Jar Binks lookalike contest winner Robert Griffin (THE THIRD!!!!! Please don't confuse him with his non-famous father or his non-famous grandfather) called the Frogs' win "a fluke" Silly SMU tried an onside kick and LaDarius Brown took it to the house for a very short 45-yard kickoff return for a TD in 2013. A few bonus 45s: V-E Day: May 8, 1945 V-J Day: August 15, 1945 A.C. Green The Dutch Oven, in his finest moment 45

It was GP's 46th career victory at TCU. ...a few bonus 46s: Juan Gonzalez hit 46 home runs in 1993 to win his second straight AL home run title This is a screen-cap from the video for Tool's "Forty Six and 2"

  16. -Lat Mayen is no longer on the roster -The Frogs will play Clemson in the MGM Tournament in Vegas on November 24th, then either Colorado or Wyoming in the final or 3rd place game on the 26th.
  17. Evan Skoug has gone deep in his last two games for Advanced-A Winston-Salem (White Sox)
  18. Our current 51: Quazzel White A few memorable 51s: Robert Henson Austin Schlottmann Josh Goolsby Kenny Cain Connie Sparks Down by 22 points and without starting QB Tye Gunn, TCU rallied behind super sub Jeff Ballard to beat BYU, 51-50, in Triple OT in Provo on September 24, 2005. ...and one bonus 51: Ken Norton Jr.

  21. -Arrieta was shelled in his last outing, giving up 5 earned runs on 11 hits in just 4.1 IP. He drops to 8-7 on the year and his ERA jumped up to 4.67 - but the news gets worse, as it was discovered that he has a bone spur in his throwing elbow which will require surgery at some point. As of now, it hasn't been determined if that'll happen now or after the season. -Cashner has won his last three starts for the Orioles, going at least 6 innings in each and totalling 13 K's against just 2 walks in that span. He's now 9-3 on the year with a svelte 3.83 ERA, which has led to some speculation about his availability at the trade deadline. His first post-break start is scheduled for next Sunday against Tampa Bay. -Carpenter hasn't played since June 29 after being put on the DL with a lower back strain. Through 77 games, he's batting .216 with 10 HR, 28 RBI and a .706 OPS. -Holaday has hit safely in his last 6 appearances for the Marlins. He's only played in 16 games this year, but he's hitting .311 with 2 HR, 7 RBI and an .893 OPS. -Cron is 1 for his last 10, though the 1 was a HR. Through 24 total big league games, he's hitting .208 with 4 HR, 11 RBI and an .806 OPS. -Alex Young has made the most of his recent call-up to join the Diamondbacks. In his last outing, he tossed 6 no-hit innings on 71 pitches against the Rockies before being pulled. Through two starts and one relief appearance for Arizona, he's 2-0 with an 0.68 ERA in 13.1 total IP with 9 K's against 2 walks. No word yet on his place in the rotation after the break, but the D'Backs do play the Rangers out at The Temple on July 16-17. -Tyler Alexander (Tigers) and Stefan Crichton (D'Backs) are back at Triple-A after very respectable showings in their brief call-ups. Riley Ferrell was waived by the Marlins and, as a Rule 5 pick, returned to the Astros organization where he's pitched 4 scoreless IP in his first three relief appearances for Double-A Corpus Christi.
  22. Our current 53: John Lanz A few memorable 53s: Max Eubank David Johnson ...and a few bonus 53s: Mark Stepnoski Dirk dropped 53 on the Rockets on December 2, 2004
  23. Brian Howard was just named the Texas League's Pitcher of the Week for his last two starts in which he tossed a combined 13 IP giving up just 1 one, striking out 8 and walking just 1. For the year at Double-A Midland (A's), he's now 7-5 with a 2.75 ERA and 88 K's against 33 walks. He's pitched at least 6 innings in his last five starts for the Rockhounds.
  24. Alex Isola has been promoted to Class A by the Twins' organization, where he'll join the Cedar Rapids Kernels. In 7 games in the Rookie Leagues, Isola hit 10-for-25 (.400) with 2 doubles, 1 HR, 8 RBI and a 1.029 OPS.
  25. A few memorable 54s: Marcus Mallet Joe Broadnax Hugh Pitts Dale Walker Lee Nailon James Cash LT scored 54 career rushing TDs at TCU A few bonus 54s: Chuck Howley Randy White Jaylon Smith Popeye Jones Rear Window hit theaters September 1, 1954
