Cup of Coffee

The AAA and AA all-star games were today, and the Red Sox were well represented.
In the AAA All-Star Game the International League is getting beat 2-7 in the bottom of the sixth (full game update in morning, sorry). PawSox CF Chip Ambres is 0-for-3, and Abe Alvarez didn't fare so well in one inning pitched, he gave up 3 hits and 2 earned-runs. The AA All-Star Game took place in Portland, all of the Sea Dogs players were on the north squad, and the north won 9-6. Leading off the game was Hanley Ramirez and he did his job getting 2 hits in 3 at-bats and scoring a run. Other Portland players who were on the team and got some time were: SS Kenny Perez (1-for-2, 1 double, 1 run, and 2 RBIs), CF Chris Durbin (0-for-2, 2 SO's), RF Brandon Moss (1-for-2, 1 RBI), and 3B Jarred Sandberg (0-for-2, 1 run, and 1 SO). Now returning to regular action; for the Blue Rocks it took the until the ninth inning to get anything going and by that time it was too late. In the ninth Dustin Brown and Jeff Ontiveros hit back-to-back solo homers. Also in the game Cla Meredith made his one and only appearance (see below) for the Rocks, his line 1 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 1 K. The Bombers 4-5 at home to the Columbus Catfish. For Greenville C Salvador Paniagua was 2-for-4 with a run and a RBI.

The Gulf Coast Red Sox won 4-2, Jonathan Egan was 1-for-4 with two RBIs, and Kyle Fernandes had a great start going 4 no-hit innings, along with his 6 K's.
