8/4 Cup of Coffee

Congratulations to PawSox 1B/DH Roberto Petagine on getting called up to Boston today. As most of us here on SoxProspects know, this has been a long time coming, as Petagine has been absolutely tearing the cover off the ball during his stay in Pawtucket. Petagine's former teammates did not fare as well without his bat in the lineup last night at Syracuse, as the PawSox fell 5-3 to the SkyChiefs. Tim Kester got off to a rocky start by giving up three runs in the bottom of the 1st. On a positive note, Dustin Pedroia hit his first triple-A home run during the top frame of the first, and seems to be on his way back after a nagging wrist injury forced him to the DL. Portland got the 8-6 win over New Britain at Hadlock Field yesterday, as Sea Dog hitters pounded out 14 hits against Rock Cat pitchers. Jeremy West went 3 for 4 with a home run and a double. Portland's 1 through 5 hitters each had at least two hits a piece. David Pauley got the start, going 5.2 innings allowing two earned runs on nine hits, but did not factor in the decision. In the Carolinas, Greenville lost to Charleston, 6-3. Jeff Corsaletti was the lone bright spot in the lineup yesterday, as he went 3 for 4 with a double and two runs scored, boosting his average to an impressive .358. Beau Vaughan went five innings, allowing three earned runs, while his successor Kyle Jackson took the loss, dropping him to 1-5 on the season. Lowell couldn't lose yesterday - they had the day off. Finally, the GCL Red Sox edged the GCL Reds 5-4 yesterday at City of Palms Park. Michael Jones led the way, going 2 for 4 with a double and an RBI. Jesus Garcia homered to help put two on the board for the Sox. There was another El Guapo sighting in the first inning, as Rich Garces allowed only one hit over one inning, albeit a home run to the "other" Michael Jones (Reds shortstop) while striking out three. Rhys Taylor pitched well enough to earn the win by going 3.1 shutout innings, lowering his ERA to a microscopic 0.68.
Player of the Night: Jeremy West, who went on to pace Portland's victory over the Rock Cats by going 3 for 4 with a home run, a double, and two runs scored.
