Cup of Coffee


As I sit before the keyboard sipping my Tim Horton's large black, Red Sox Nation feels a little better. Not only did the parent team win last night but the teams in the farm system took four out of a possible six games.
In AAA, Pawtucket was defeated by Carlotte by a score of 9-5. Abe Alvarez took the loss giving up seven runs on eight hits in his eight innings. Justin Sherrod led the way offensively going 3 for 4 with 2 homers and three RBIs. In Portland, the Sea Dogs defeated Trenton 5-0 to take sole possession of first place. Jon Lester pitched a masterful game tossing 7 shut out innings giving up just 5 hits while striking out 12 and walking none. David Murphy was 4 for 4 at the plate with 2 RBIs. Wilmington broke an eight game losing streak with a 3-2 win over Salem. Andrew Dobies went 8 innings allowing just 2 runs on 4 hits while striking out 5. DH Chad Spann went 2 for 3 with 2 RBIs. Greenville continues to be hot in their second half defeating Rome 4-2. Jesus Delgado got the win in relief allowing 4 hits and 0 runs over 3 2/3 innings. Jeff Corsaletti went 2 for 4 with a homer and a RBI. Lowell defeated Tri-City 6-1 behind Clay Buchholz who pitched three solid innings giving up no runs on 3 hits while striking out 3. Shortstop Dominic Ramos went 2 for 5 including a home run and 3 RBIs. The Gulf Coast Red Sox took it on the nose losing to the Twins 9-8. Yader Peraltra took the loss in relief while Richard Santana was 3 for 5 and Ian Bladergroen went 2 for 3 with 4 RBIs and raised his average to .444 while rehabbing from his injury.
Player of the Night: Jon Lester gets the nod for his strong performance in a night where there were several deserving candidates.
