Cup of Coffee

Pawtucket won't have a game for the next couple of days because of the all-star break, which can be seen at 10 pm EDT on MILB.com. Portland played a double-header today, and won both games. In the first game Jon Lester threw 7 innings of 1 hit baseball, tying a club record with 13 K-outs and allowing only one walk. Hanley Ramirez returned from the Futures Game to go 1-for-2 with a RBI. In the second game there was more good pitching, this time it was David Pauley getting the win by going the complete 7 innings allowing only four hits and an unearned run. The scores of the two games were 3-0 and 4-1 respectively. Down in Myrtle Beach Wilmington won 10-5. Jose Vaquedano got the win, and Chad Spann went deep in the fourth, his eighth of the year. Although Greenville lost 4-5 the top of the Bombers order hit well, especially John Otness who went 3-for-5 with 3 RBIs. Ryan Schroyer took the loss in relief and now has a record of 3-3. Lowell dominated in an 8-0 win over Auburn. Ryan Phillips earned the win pitching five strong innings, and Brian Marshall pitched a perfect sixth, striking out two. Two players who stood out with their bats were DH Jeff Natale (2-for-4, 2 RBIs, and 1 run) and SS Dominic Ramos (2-for-5, 1 triple, 2 RBIs, and 1 run). Finally in the Gulf Coast League the GCL Red Sox suffered a 2-3 loss to the GCL Twins. Archie Gilbert did well going 3-for-4 with a RBI and a run. Billy Phillips pitched two perfect innings striking out two.
Player of the Night: Who else but Jon Lester, who pitched a one-hitter over 7 innings, and for the second start in a row struck out 12 or more batters!
