seddon-tary ways

After just missing hitting a homer the same evening I featured Andrew Beattie’s DAV card, the second baseman arrived at Isotopes Park the following afternoon ready to do a little yard work. One would be hard-pressed to find any fault with Andrew’s contribution, as he was perfect at the plate going 3 for 3 with a walk, his third home run of the season, scoring twice and adding a pair of RBIs to his totals. Oh yeah, and raising his batting average to .317 in the process.

Andrew shared the spotlight of the Albuquerque Isotopes 5-2 victory over the Round Rock Express (Houston Astros) with starting pitcher Frankie De la Cruz- who pitched a gem. De la Cruz went eight and two-thirds innings on an extremely windy evening yielding only five hits, a walk and two unearned runs en route to improving his season record to 6 and 2. The vast majority of the 24 batters who didn’t strike out ended up grounding out. The few pitches offered by De la Cruz that weren’t recorded as strikes didn’t miss by much.

Isotopes fans are hoping for a similar outing this evening from southpaw Chris Seddon. Over the course of eight starts this season, Seddon has amassed a record of 3-2 with a 4.00 ERA and 1.53 WHIP with 45 innings in the scorebook.

Seddon also signs a very nice signature complete with a sweeping “C” and a looping “S” that leaves this blogger wondering whether Chris studies art when he isn’t studying batters. Unfortunately this first series 2008 Upper Deck card (no. 292) fails to mention what Seddon’s hobbies are. I guess I’ll have to ask him myself- which is fine because he is a heck of a nice fella.
