News and Notes

With the Pawtucket rotation being so thin, Marc Deschenes got a start last night and managed to hold his own against a very potent Buffalo line up. Deschenes has appeared in 44 games this year between the Sea Dogs and the Paw Sox, but last night was his first start. After posting a 3.74 ERA in 43.1 IP in Portland, Deschenes has improved with the jump to the next level posting a 2.13 ERA in 12.2 IP.

Three of Pawtucket's four runs last night came on solo home runs by Dave Berg, Alejandro Machado, and Mark Bellhorn. All three of the homers came off Buffalo's starter, Fausto Carmon who, other than that, pitched a very good game.

Portland swept yesterday's double header, scoring 8 runs in both of the games against New Britain. Chris Durbin and David Murphy each really helped the team with 4 hits a piece. Durbin scored 3 times while Murphy scored 4 times. The pitching was unspectacular on the day as neither started earned a quality start. Chris Smith allowed 3 runs and only lasted 5 innings while Charlie Zink wasn't able to get out of the 4th, allowing 3 runs in 3.2 IP.

The recently reacquired Luis Mendoza hasn't been making much of a case for himself lately. After being slammed for 6 runs and 8 hits in 5 innings yesterday his numbers for the year are very unimpressive with a 3-7 record with a 6.24 ERA in 99.2 IP. The scary thing is that he was even worse in his two games with the San Diego organization.

The most lopsided game in the organization yesterday went down in Greenville as the Bombers dominated Savannah in every aspect of the game. Beau Vaughan pitched a gem, striking out 8 in 6 scoreless innings while not allowing a walk. The offense was even more impressive than the pitching with every member of the line up contributing for the 16 run explosion. While none of the top six hitters in that line up are considered prospects, they are all young guys who are having some great seasons and make up a very potent offensive force.
