Here's a look at yesterdays results and highlights from the farm. The Paw Sox lost 3-7 to Ottawa, Jon Papelbon made his AAA debut working six innings of three hit one-run ball, while striki
ng out seven. Curt Schilling didn’t fair as well, while testing the waters as a reliever for the first time in over a decade he went one inning giving up two runs, one earned. Alejandro Machado was 2-for-4 with a homer (his first of the season) and 3 RBIs. Portland won 4-0 over Trenton, Anibal Sanchez made his AA debut pitching four innings of shutout ball while striking out six. Former first round pick David Murphy continued his recent unforeseen hot streak, he was 3-for-5 on the night. Wilmington suffered a 2-3 defeat last night to the Kinston Indians, second baseman Scott Youngbauer had three hits in four at-bats. In A-ball the Bombers lost 2-3, Andrew Pinckney homered (his 11th) and drove in two runs. The Spinners were victors 3-0, pitching prospect Mario Pena lasted seven innings allowing only three hits while picking up the win and improving to 3-1. In the Gulf Coast League the Gulf Coast Red Sox lost to the GCL Reds 2-3, Sox 12th round pick Kyle Fernandes had an impressive showing striking out six batters and allowing one hit and no runs over 3 2/3 innings.
Players of the Day: Jon Papelbon of Pawtucket and Anibal Sanchez of Portland who in their debuts at their new leagues gave up a combined 1 run over 10 innings with 13 K's.
