My but the bats were hot in Portland today. For both teams, unfortunately. But one of those bats is on its way up the ladder.
Pawtucket W 4-1
Daniel Nava: 0-4, 2 K
Lars Anderson: 0-3, BB, 2 K
Aaron Bates: 1-4, K
Josh Reddick: 1-3, 2B, BB
-Robbed of a long ball.
Michael Bowden: 6 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 7 K
-The rare impressive outing from mister Bowden. Hopefully the start of a trend.
Robert Manuel: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K
Ryan Kalish finishes up his sub-jump run with a tidy little game.
Portland W 10-6
Che-Hsuan Lin: 0-1, K
Ryan Kalish: 2-4, 2B, BB
-Perhaps the most sudden regression to the mean I've ever seen.
Luis Exposito: 2-4, 2B, HR, BB
-Absolute bomb over the Maine Monster. Probably would've cleared Lansdowne.
Anthony Rizzo: 3-5, HR, 1 K
-Swing looked inconsistent to me, but when it's looking good, it's looking very good. And since I need a new preview guy, Tony's up!
Yamaico Navarro: 1-4, HR
Casey Kelly: 4 IP, 10 H, 6 R, 6 ER, 0 BB, 1 K
-See this post for more on his underwhelming outing.
Salem L 3-4 (In 10)
Pete Hissey: 0-5, 2 K
Oscar Tejeda: 0-5, 4 K
Will Middlebrooks: 1-4, 2 K
Ryan Lavarnway: 0-3, BB, K
Ryan Dent: 0-3, K
Alex Wilson: 6 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 5 K, 1 HR
-This promotion is probably a good bit overdue. Between his age and his numbers, Wilson has to be due in Portland soon.
Greenville L 0-4
Jeremy Hazelbaker: 0-4, BB, 2 K
Derrik Gibson: -13, BB
Chris McGuiness: 1-4, 2 K
Michael Almanzar: 1-4
