News and Notes

Tim Kester pitched a great game scattering 3 runs over 8 innings of work for the complete game, but the offense just couldn't get it going. The Paw Sox walked only twice and had just 6 hits, only a double by George Lombard going for extra bases. Kester took the loss and his record fell to 11-8 on the year. He did drop his ERA to 5.13 and now has pitched in 152.2 innings this year while striking out 95 and walking just 26. The 34 year old is in his third season in the Sox organization after joining them from the Independent Leagues in 2003. He's always had good control and throws a variety of pitches for strikes, but he is often hurt by the long ball.

Four of the five Sox starters had a quality start yesterday. Only Chris Smith in Portland didn't. He missed it by only 1 out, allowing 3 runs in 5.2 IP, striking out 7 while walking 1. Not a quality start, but still a good one and he kept his team in the game long enough for them to be able to come back and win it in the 9th. Jose Vaquedano threw 7 innings only allowing 2 runs, but he walked 3 while only striking out 1. Kester went the whole game, striking out 6, but he did take the loss while allowing 3 runs. In Greenville Gary Galvez threw 6.1 innings of 1 run ball, but only managed 3 K's compared to the 3 walks he allowed. So the best start of the day likely comes from Lowell's Adam Blackley, a 20 year old Australian taken as an international free agent in 2003. Blackley earned the win with 6 innings of 1 run ball and struck out 8. After a disappointing try in Greenville where he posted a 6.15 ERA in 60 innings over 13 starts, Blackley has turned it around with a demotion to Lowell going 6-3 with a 4.09 ERA in 66 innings, striking out 75 while walking 19. He does have a bit of a problem letting up the long ball, however
