Portland Beavers

Next: The Beavers are on an eight-game road trip that will have them in Tucson through Thursday and then at Las Vegas from Friday through Tuesday. Portland returns to PGE Park on July 25 to face Oklahoma City and New Orleans for four games apiece.

Notes: Right-hander Dewon Brazelton got a rehabilitation start with the Arizona League Padres on Friday, giving up two unearned runs on one hit and two walks over two innings. He could be headed back to Portland soon. Brazelton has been on the disabled list since June 23 with a strained left oblique. … Scott Cassidy, who had 11 saves in 17 appearances for Portland last year, was 1 for 1 for 2006 after pitching the final inning of Sunday's 4-3 home win over Tacoma. Cassidy was optioned from San Diego on Friday. The victory gave the Beavers a 3-1 series win, their first since June 16 through June 19 against Fresno.
