Welcome to Dirtbags Baseball blog! I was introduced to Long Beach State baseball in 2002 when my nephew, Neil Jamison, joined the team (and university) as a freshman. I started the blog in March of 2004, and generally discuss the team, current players and those that have moved on to professional baseball - as Neil has done in the San Diego Padres organization. Living in San Diego County, and with Neil moving to the next level, I won't be attending as many Dirtbags games. But, mostly from a distance, I'll remain a Dirtbags fan. I welcome tips on stories and information concerning the Dirtbags (current, past and future). I can be contacted at

Todd Jennings Goes 5 for 5 In San Jose Giants Win

From the San Jose Giants (Class Advance-A California League) website:

[Former Dirtbag] Todd Jennings finished a perfect 5-for-5 at the plate helping the San Jose Giants to a series-opening 6-2 victory over the Stockton Ports on Monday night. In front of 1,957 fans at Municipal Stadium, Jennings' big night was part of a 14-hit offensive attack for the Giants. Starting pitcher Jesse Floyd also tossed five shutout innings on the mound to record his third victory of the season. ...

Jennings then drove home Timpner with a single. After [Former Dirtbag] John Bowker singled to move Jennings to second, Eddy Martinez-Esteve lined a single into center field plating Jennings with the second run of the inning. #5 hitter Kevin Frandsen completed the rally with a single of his own to center field to score Bowker for a 3-0 Giants advantage.

San Jose extended their lead in the bottom of the fourth inning when Timpner doubled with two outs. After a Jennings infield single moved Timpner to third, the San Jose center fielder came home to score when Bowker grounded a single through the left side. ...

The perfect night at the plate for Jennings (5-for-5, 2 2B, RBI) raised his average to 29 points to .290 on the season. Timpner (2-for-5, 2B, 3B), Bowker (2-for-5, RBI), and Martinez-Esteve (2-for-4, HR, 2 RBI) also each recorded multi-hit games.

Jennings recorded the RBI single in the first inning, a double in the second inning, an infield single in the bottom of the fourth, a single in the sixth inning, and then completed his evening with a double off of the wall in left field in the bottom of the eighth. The five hits tied a San Jose Giants single-game franchise record held by 19 players (22 different times). Martinez-Esteve (April 17th at Lake Elsinore) and Eliezer Alfonzo (April 18th at High Desert) also accomplished the feat earlier this season for the Giants.

San Jose has now won 21 out of their last 28 games. The Giants (23-14) are four games ahead of second-place Bakersfield (18-17) in the First Half North Division race....
UPDATE: Todd's performance got him a mention in Baseball America's Daily Dish today:
Giants third baseman Todd Jennings is doing much better in his second go-around at high Class A San Jose. A former catcher, Jennings went 5-for-5 last night in the Giants' 6-2 win over Stockton, increasing his season totals to .290-4-17. A second-round pick in 2003 out of Long Beach State, Jennings hit just .186-1-12 in 45 games for San Jose last season while dealing with a shoulder injury.
