Pawtucket L 9-10
Talk about letting a lead get away from you. Oh, Bowden.
Josh Reddick: 1-5, BB, 2 K, A
Daniel Nava: 1-4, 2 BB, 3 K, SB, E
Aaron Bates: 1-4, BB
Jorge Jimenez: 2-4, BB, K
Michael Bowden: 4.2 IP, 5 H, 7 R, 7 ER, 3 BB, 2 K, 2 HR
-Nothing comes easy anymore for our old #2 Mr. Bowden.
Lars goes hitless after the jump.
Portland L 3-9
But it's OK, because he was resting!
Ryan Kalish: 0-3, BB
Luis Exposito: 0-3, BB
Che-Hsuan Lin: 3-4
Yamaico Navarro: 1-4
-Making his first appearance in a long while thanks to a sore wrist.
Jose Iglesias: 2-4, 2B, K, CS
Jason Place: 0-3, BB, 2 K
Casey Kelly: 2.1 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 3 K
-A tale of two innings for Kelly, really. Hammered in the first for 2 runs on 5 baserunners, and then comes back to strike out the side in order in the 2nd. Gave up a hit and got an out in the 3rd before being pulled (the strict pitch count continues).
Eammon Portice: 2.2 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 0 BB, 3 K
Salem W 2-1
Salem can win the low scoring ones too, it seems.
Pete Hissey: 1-3, BB, K, SB
Tim Federowicz: 1-4
Ryan Lavarnway: 1-4, K
Will Middlebrooks: 1-3, 2B, BB
-1st base on balls in over a week. But when he's got 12 hits in the same time period, including 2 long balls, it's hard to complain. Hasn't struck out in 3 games, either.
Oscar Tejeda: 0-4, 4 K, E
-Oscar wears the Golden Sombrero. I fear the fall for him could be fast...Though he'll reach a new, higher plateau compared to last year just given the power.
David Mailman: 0-1, 3 BB, CS
Alex Wilson: 5 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 6 K
-That's the Wilson I remember from Lowell. Wilson is learning to adjust to hiters who won't swing at anything he throws them, so some rough times were to be expected.
