Luis Molina isn't just sitting back and taking his season-ending knee injury quietly. Molina believes Jose Castro, the Modesto A's second baseman, intentionally injured him on a hard slide breaking up a double play at second base on Sunday. Molina upended Castro a few innings earlier on a similar play, but Castro was not as badly hurt. Molina tore ligaments and cartilage in his left knee and may have also broken a bone.

Luis Molina, the JetHawk shortstop whose season ended because of a knee injury in May, returned to the field this week. Sort of. Molina can run in a straight line and play catch. It's not much, but it beats sitting in street clothes, as he had been since Modesto's Jose Castro upended him while breaking up a double play May 26. "It feels good to be able to start running again," Molina said.

Last Sunday was Father's Day in Nicaragua, so Luis Molina made sure he called his dad in Central America during the week. After some aimless chitchat about the weather and family matters--the kinds of things people talk about when they're trying to avoid much weightier subjects--the discussion turned to Luis' physical condition. Rubbing the uncomfortable neoprene brace that holds his left knee together, Luis cursed his luck. And two time zones away, his father, Julio, felt the pain.

Reliever Jason Bond did all the Lancaster JetHawks could have asked of him on Saturday night at the Hangar. But they still could have used a little more. After the JetHawks fell six runs behind the Lake Elsinore Storm in the first two innings, Bond pitched 4 2/3 innings of excellent relief, allowing the JetHawks to get to within a run. But when Bond finally ran out of gas, the Storm scored two runs against Brian Sweeney and won, 9-6, before a crowd of 4,717.

The largest crowd of the season--5,014--turned out Saturday night to see the JetHawks play the San Jose Giants at the Hangar. And the JetHawks put on quite a show. After they rallied for four runs to tie the game in the eighth, Miguel Correa delivered a high chopper over first base to drive in Luis Molina with one out in the ninth and give the JetHawks a 6-5 victory.

San Bernardino Stampede Manager Del Crandall, who picked the reserves for the California League all-star team, said he did not pick Modesto A's standout Ben Grieve because he wanted Eddie Davis, from his own team, instead. "That's the most powerful reason," Crandall said before the Stampede's game at the Hangar on Friday. "[Davis] had been right up there in RBIs and he had played very well for us." Entering play Friday, Davis was hitting .

With so many JetHawks off to good starts, the obvious question is: Do some of these players belong in double A? The man to answer that question, Larry Beinfest, director of player development for the Seattle Mariners, just happens to be in Lancaster for five games. "I think all the people who are here are here because it's appropriate," Beinfest said. "A little confidence and success [at Class A] can go a long way in these guys' careers."

Shane Monahan's bases-loaded single in the 11th inning Sunday lifted the JetHawks to a 7-6 victory over the Modesto A's before 5,303 at the Hangar. Monahan's hit gave the JetHawks (24-27) their third victory in four games after losing 17 of 20. It was a bittersweet victory, as JetHawk shortstop Luis Molina injured his left knee on a collision at second base. Molina tore the anterior and medial cruciate ligaments and cartilage in his knee and will be out for the season.

Robbie Kent singled home Rick Prieto with two out in the bottom of the sixth inning to give the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes a 4-3 victory Wednesday over the Lancaster JetHawks in a California League game at the Epicenter.
