News and Notes
With most minor league seasons ending in a couple of days, the starting pitchers are getting what is likely their last turn in the

rotation this year and for the most part yesterday, those pitchers were not impressive. Abe Alvarez was on the mound for the Paw Sox and it just wasn't his night as he allowed 5 runs in 5.1 IP on 10 hits and 1 walk. He did strike out 3 and didn't allow any HR's, but he took the loss to fall to 11-6 on the year. As bad as Abe pitched, Anibal Sanchez was even worse. Sanchez also allowed 10 hits, but he did it over 4 innings and walked 2 to allow 7 runs, 6 of them earned. After starting off his AA career in a brilliant fashion, Sanchez has stumbled a bit and now has a 3.45 ERA in 57.1 IP over 11 starts. The good news is that he's struck out 63 while walking 16 and allowing only 5 runs. His numbers for Portland this year have been good, but a few horrible starts have tainted his ERA.
