Ramos, Beavers deal shutout to close out 2009 season on high note

September 7, 2009 - Pacific Coast League (PCL) - Portland Beavers News Release

PORTLAND, Ore. - Cesar Ramos tossed six-plus scoreless innings, Craig Stansberry hit a three-run double and the Portland Beavers concluded the 2009 season with a 5-0 victory over the Las Vegas 51s before 9,791 Monday afternoon at PGE Park.

Russ Adams was 2-for-4 with two runs scored, and relievers Edwin Moreno and Mike Ekstrom teamed with Ramos on the four-hit shutout effort.

Ramos (5-6) held the 51s (71-73) to just one hit over the first six innings. The left-hander, who pitched to two batters in the seventh before exiting, struck out four and allowed just three hits and two walks for the win.

The Beavers (60-84) took a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the second, getting two-out RBI singles from Sean Kazmar and Jason Hagerty. Stansberry's bases-loaded double with two outs in the fourth gave Portland and Ramos a solid, 5-0 advantage.

Las Vegas threatened in the seventh, loading the bases against Ramos and Moreno, who coaxed a strikeout and a double-play grounder to keep the 51s off the board.

The loss went to Randy Boone (0-2), who gave up five runs, six hits and two walks while fanning four across four innings of work.

Monday's game wrapped up the season for both the Beavers and 51s.
