Pilots sweep Sens with 3 late game rallies

J.Coleman vs Brabender
Pilots 6, Senators 0

John Donaldson's one out double in the bottom of the 7th broke a scoreless tie.  Tommy Davis (single) and Don Mincher (IBB) both scored easily.  The Pilots scored 4 more in the bottom of the 8th as Gene Brabender (4-9, 3.64) cruised to a 5 hit complete game shutout.

C.Cox vs Segui
Pilots 6, Senators 2

Four unanswered runs in the bottom of the 8th propelled the Pilots and Diego Segui (8-5, 5.16) to a 6-2 victory.  Steve "Orbit" Hovley and Greg Goossen each had big RBI knocks.  Del Unser's error in center helped extend the inning.  Bob Locker pitched a scoreless 9th in a non save situation.  Hovley (3-4) and Goossen (2-4, 2 RBI) had 5 of Seattle's 7 hits.

Shellenback vs Talbot
Pilots 8, Senators 3

Game 3 of this series mirrored the first 2 games.  Both teams battled to a standoff until the Pilots found out that their lumber could be useful.  Today the game was tied 1-1 until the Pilots sent 13 ment to the plate and scored 7 runs.  Tommy Davis turned the clock back to the earlier part of the decade when he was a hitting machine for the Dodgers.  Davis (3-4) had a homer and 2 RBI's and 2 runs scored.  Fred "Paternity" Talbot was solid giving up just 1 run in 7 innings, but left the game with a no decision.  Reliever John Gelnar (4-1, 2.84), who was not overly effective in 2 innings of work (2 ER) got the gift win as the Pilots pulled off the unlikely sweep at home vs Washington.

Diamond Dust:  Seattle (46-56) had a real life record of 43-59 on July 31, 1969 and is playing +3 above their real life pace.
