8/27 Cup of Coffee


It was a night of nailbiters for the affiliates last night, with three games being decided by one run. Pawtucket was shut out 3-0 by Scranton. Tim Kester pitched well enough to win, but received no run support and absorbed the loss. George Lombard went 1 for 3 with Pawtucket's only extra base hit on the night. Portland eeked out a win against New Hampshire in dramatic fashion last night, 4-3. Matt Van Der Bosch suicide squeezed home Chris Durbin in the bottom of the ninth to send the crowd home happy. Also of note was uber prospect Hanley Ramirez, who went 2 for 3 at the dish, with a run scored. Randy Beam got the win in relief, going the final two innings while only allowing one hit and stiking out three. Wilmington lost its game to Lynchburg in extra innings, 3-2. Jon De Vries went 2 for 4 with a double and an RBI in the losing effort. Jose Vaquedano's solid performance on the hill was wasted, as the Blue Rocks starter went seven strong, allowing only four hits and two runs. Unfortunately, the offense couldn't muster enough runs as they fell in the 10th. Greenville won in convincing fashion over Charleston, 8-2 last night at Municipal Stadium. Ian Cronkhite led the way for the Bombers, going 2 for 4 with a double and a home run. Logan Sorensen went 1 for 2 with two ribbies and two runs scored helping the home team to victory. Gary Galvez looked good, allowing only one run - a solo home run to Riverdogs CF Tim Battle - while scattering four hits in six and third innings of work. Lowell held off a three-run surge to Tri-City in the top of the ninth and pulled through with a 5-4 victory. Jay Johnson went 3 for 4 on the night, as did Yahmed Yema, who chipped in with two doubles on the night. Adam Blackley went six innings, allowing only one run while fanning eight. While it wasn't exactly Game 7 of the 2003 ALCS, the Yankees ended the Red Sox season prematurely- on the Gulf Coast League level. The GCL Red Sox were held to two total hits in their 4-1 loss the GCL Yankees. Mike Jones scored the Sox only run. Yulkin German lasted only three outs to start the game, allowing all the runs the GCL Yankees would need and took the loss in the season finale.

Player of the Night: Lowell outfielder Yahmed Yema, who went 3 for 4 on the night, with two doubles and a run scored.
