News and Notes

Mark Malaska, making his first start since 2002, pitched brilliantly for the Paw Sox allowing only 1 run on 3 hits in 5 innings of work for the win. He only struck out 1, but he didn't walk anyone and gave the Sox the emergency start they needed. Malaska has been used mostly for middle relief this year.

Mark Bellhorn continues to struggle and now has a .125/.222/.225 line in 40 AB's. He has just 3 walks to go along with 13 K's and only 2 extra base hits. Unless he dramatically turns things around he's not going to be able to make his way back into Boston.

Portland's 5 game winning streak was snapped when Anibal Sanchez allowed 4 runs in 6 innings. He was dominant at times, retiring 11 of 12 at one point, but allowed a few too many runs. He did manage to keep the team in the game as the score was tied until a 9th inning bullpen meltdown.

Pack your bags and run for cover, the world is coming to an end. That's right, Ian Bladergroen hit a home run. It was only his second for the Blue Rocks this year. Brandon Moss and Hanley Ramirez haven't exactly lived up to their expectations, but Bladergroen gets my vote for biggest Sox minor league disappointment, hands down.

The Lowell Spinners game in Hudson was postponed due to rain.
