News and Notes

George Lombard tied a Pawtucket record with his 148th strikeout of the year yesterday. Despite that, Lombard has still managed to put together a fairly decent year with a .257/.345/.466 line in 451 AB's. He has 19 home runs and 19 steals.

Portland lost their game in the 12th on an unearned run after a bloop single, passed ball, ground out, and a sac fly.

Vermont made 4 errors, Lowell scored 11 runs, and they had a 6 run lead going into the 9th inning. The Spinners still managed to lose the game. Vermont exploded for 6 runs in the bottom of the 9th off of this year's 46th round pick, Terry Large. They then went on to score the winning run in the 10th to beat Lowell 12-11.

Matt Van Der Bosch and Chad Spann were both promoted from Wilmington to Portland and yesterday Van Der Bosch appeared in his first game. Van Der Bosch, a 23 year old 9th round pick in 2004, is a speedy outfielder who put up a .290/.427/.427 line in 124 AB's in Greenville before making the jump to Wilmington where he put up a .283/.347/.404 line in 265 AB's. He's stolen 24 bases combined over the two levels while being caught 8 times. His walk total took a big hit when he moved to high-A. After walking 28 times in Greenville he walked just 27 in double the AB's in Wilmington. He went 2-4 in his first AA game, but he'll need to keep that good eye to be successful. Spann didn't play. To fill their spot in Wilmington, Claudio Arias was given the call up from Greenville. Arias, a prospect with big time power potential, but strikes out a lot and may have trouble making contact in the higher levels, put up a .312/.359/.603 line in 199 AB's. He homered 13 times, but walked only 11 compared to 55 K's. The 23 year old impressed in his first high-A game going 2-4 with a double and a homer.
