News and Notes

Pawtucket should have won both games of the double header. They won the first game 8-7 and started off with a 8-0 lead in the second game. After 4 innings left the game and had an 8-1 lead. Then it all fell apart and the bullpen surrendered 9 runs in the final 3 innings and the Sox lost the game 10-9. And you thought Boston had problems.

Dustin Pedroia had a fantastic night. He hit 2 HR's in the second game of the double header and now has 4 on the year. The 6-10 performance on the day brought his Pawtucket line up to a respectable .290/.373/.460. It's still not as good as the .324/.409/.508 line he had in Portland, but given a little bit of time he may get it up there, especially now that the wrist doesn't seem to be bothering him. His ISO and ISD are around the same place in both levels so the main difference between the two lines is just in AVG. His BABIP in Portland was .338 while his BABIP in Pawtucket is .288 so expect a line somewhere in between the two.

Dave Berg also had a good day yesterday going 4-9, scoring 4 times and hitting his second home run of the year. Since moving to the third spot in the line up, he really seems to be hitting the ball well. His power still isn't there, but he's getting on base and his .307/.402/.396 line isn't too bad. He's doing a good job of setting the table so that Pawtucket's big bats can knock him in. He is second on the team in runs scored with 64. George Lombard leads the team and is second in the league with 84.

Portland won both games of their double header, but not all the action took place on the field. Binghamton first base coach charged the Portland dugout after a hit batter in the first game causing a field clearing brawl. He exchanged some heated words with the dugout before charging at Portland's pitching coach, Fernando Arroyo. Hitting coach, Russ Morman, got in between the two. The Binghamton bench rushed out and all the players cleared the field and headed towards the dugout. Hollins and Arroyo were both ejected while Morman was taken to the hospital to have an injured finger looked at.

By now we've all heard the news. Manny Delcarmen has been sent back to Pawtucket and taking his place on the roster is Jon Papelbon who will be making his second career start tonight against the Tigers.
