Cup of Coffee


With gloomy weather forcast all along the Atlantic seaboard today, hopefully we will get the games in tonight as there promises to be some dramatic matchups.
Looking at last night's action, Pawtucket defeated Ottawa 9-3. Mark Malaska got the win his record going to 2-2. He pitched 2 2/3 innings giving up 1 run on 2 hits. Manny Delcarmen made his first appearance in AAA going 2 innings striking out 5 while giving up no hits. Jeff Bailey, who has been struggling this year, led the offense going 3 for 4 with a homer, a run scored and 4 RBIs. Dustin Pedroia in his return to the lineup went 2 for 5 and Kelly Shoppach was 2 for 4. Portland dropped a heartbreaker 7-6. Marc Deschenes took the loss giving up a home run to the first batter he faced in the bottom of the ninth. Hanley Ramirez went 3 for 5 with a home run 2 runs scored and 2 RBIs. Kenny Perez was also 3 for 5 scoring a run and driving in 2. Wilmington lost 4-0 to Kinston. Jose Vaquedano took the loss. His record is now 3-4. He suffered from lack of run support as he pitched 6 innings giving up 2 runs on 5 hits while striking out 4. Brant Ust went 2 for 4 on a night when the team managed only 5 hits. Greenville's game against Rome was postponed due to rain. Lowell fell 4-1 to Vermont. Ryan Phillips took the loss his record now 2-1. He threw for 4 2/3 innings giving up 3 runs on 8 hits. Dominic Ramos went 2 for 3 to lead the Spinners. Finally the Gulf Coast Red Sox saw their record fall to 4-7 with a 10-6 loss to the Reds. James Albury took the loss pitching 1 2/3 innings giving up 6 runs on 5 hits. Richard Santana went 3 for 5 with 1 RBI and Manny Arambarris went 2 for 3 with 2 doubles. I am looking forward to tonight's action as Jon Papelbon makes his first start in AAA and Curt Schilling will make his way to the bullpen to begin the great experiment of 2005.
Player of the Night: Jeff Bailey of Pawtucket who went 3 for 4, scoring 2 runs with 4 RBIS and a home run.
