Jason Kubel Quad Cities River Bandits card

August 16, 2002: South Bend Silver Hawks @ Quad Cities River Bandits

I’m continuing to get my oldest stuff out here first. I have this scorecard from August 16, 2002. The River Bandits beat the Silver Hawks 3-2. It was a fairly uneventful game but it did feature these five future MLB players:

Garrett Jones

Sadly, I can’t say I recall this game. It’s unfortunate, because all 5 of the future MLB players did well in this game.
The Silver Hawks scored a run the second inning. Dan Callahan and Jay Garthwaite both singled. Then with two outs Rick Haydel hit a double. Callahan scored but Garthwaite was thrown out at the plate on a relay from the left fielder to the third baseman to Mauer for the tag. The River Bandits tied it at 1 on a home run by Garrett Jones in the bottom of the third. The Silver Hawks took a 2-1 lead in the 5th inning when Jay Garhwaite doubled and then Dan Uggla tripled. The River Bandits would take a 3-2 lead in the 6th. Joe Mauer drew a walk, and then two batters later Jason Kubel hit a 2 run home run. Jesse Crain would close out the win for the Bandits, striking out the side in the 9th for the save, his first that season.
