7/17 Cup of Coffee


It was a rough Saturday for two of the Red Sox top pitching prospects. First of all Jon Papelbon had one of his worst outings as a professonal going 3 2/3 innings, allowing 8 hits and 6 runs in a 10-2 Pawtucket loss to Ottawa. Kelly Shoppach went 3 for 3 with a home run to provide somewhat of a bright spot for the PawSox. Meanwhile at Portland, Jon Lester went 4 2/3 innings and gave up 4 runs on 5 hits in taking a 4-1 loss to Akron. He struck out 5. Jared Sandberg went 2 for 4 and scored a run to lead the Sea Dogs offense. Wilmington's game against Frederick was rained out.
Greenville defeated Columbus 8-3. Claudio Arias went 2 for 4 and homered for the second straight night. Chris Turner was 3 for 4 with 2 doubles and two runs scored. Sal Paniagua was 2 for 3 with a homer and 2 runs scored. Christain Lara went 2 for 4 with 2 RBIs. Scott Shoemaker (6-2) earned the win going 6 innings. He allowed 2 runs on 4 hits while striking out 7. Mahoning Valley got past Lowell by a score of 11-5. Jacoby Ellsbury went 2 for 5 with 3 RBIs and Luis Soto was 2 for 4 with 2 RBIs to lead the Spinners. Clay Buchholz went only 1 inning and gave up 1 run on 2 hits. Argimiro Guanchez took the loss going only a 1/3 of an inning while giving up 4 runs on 3 hits. The Gulf Coast Red Sox defeated the Pirates by a score of 7-2. Luis Segovia was 4 for 4 with 2 doubles, a RBI and a run scored, Mike Jones went 2 for 4 with a homer and 2 RBIs, and Reid Engel was 2 for 3. Rhys Taylor started the game and went 4 innings allowing just 1 run on 3 hits but Jose Ortiz got the victory in relief going 2 innings and allowing 1 run.
Players of the Night: Luis Segovia of the Gulf Coast Red Sox who went 4 for 4 and Kevin Youkilis of Pawtucket who was 3 for 3 with a home run share Saturday's honors.
