8/7 Cup of Coffee

There were alot of crooked numbers on the scoreboard in Pawrucket 16-9 win over Buffalo last night. kevinyoukilis smacked two home runs in his 3 for 4 effort last night. Adam Hyzdu made his return to McCoy Stadium as he promptly belted a grand slam in the 2nd inning. Dave Berg and Shawn Wooten each went 3 for 5 with a ribbie each. Although it won't show up in the boxscore, Justin Sherrod made two fanatastic catches in the top of the seventh, one of which robbed Buffalo slugger Ernie Young of a home run. Newly acquired Matt Perisho was exceptional in his PawSox debut, going the final 1.1 innings without allowing a hit. Portland dropped both games of their doubleheader against Binghamton yesterday. Game 1 featured a combined seven hits between the two teams, as Portland lost 3-1. Brandon Moss was the only Sea Dog in the lineup to muster more than one hit, going 2 for 3 on the night. Jon Lester went five innings, giving up two earned in the loss. In Game 2, the bats woke up for both sides, but it was the B-Mets who pulled out the victory by scoring in the bottom of the seventh, and eventually winning it in the eighth. Jeremy West went 2 for 4 with a solo shot in the fourth inning. Hanley Ramirez also had a productive night, going 2 for 3 with a pair of ribbies. Wilmington beat up on Potomac 9-4 as East Providence's own Barry Hertzler came on in relief to pick up the 4th win of the season. Matt Van Der Bosch continues to have the best week ever, as he went 2 for 4 with three runs scored. Chad Spann also chipped in by going 2 for 4 with a home run, and three runs scored as well. Greenville lost to Charleston 5-1 at Watt Powell Park yesterday. John Otness was the Bombers' lone offensive catalyst, going 2 for 4 while picking up the only RBI for the road team. Jeff Corsaletti continued his tear of late, going 2 for 4 as well and upping the average to an astounding .374. Greenville's bullpen pitched admirably, allowing no runs in relief of Henry Cabrera's shaky start. But it was a case of closing the barn doors after all the horses escaped, as the Bombers couldn't overcome the five runs the Nationals put up in the first three innings. Lowell won 3-1 over Williamsport last night, as the combined efforts of pitchers Clay Buchholz, Ismael Casillas, and Blake Maxwell held the Crosscutters to just five hits and one run. Jason Twomley went 2 for 4 with a triple, while Dominic Ramos went 2 for 5 with two bases knocked. The GCL Red Sox were edged out by the GCL Pirates, 2-1. Jimmy James went five solid innings, allowing only one run on two hits. Reid Engel was the lone hitting star for the Sox, as he went 2 for 4 with a triple.

Player of the Night:
YOOOOOOOUUUUUK! That's what the McCoy faithful chanted last night in Pawtucket as Kevin Youkilis absolutely went bananas against Buffalo pitching, going 3 for 4 with two dingers, three ribbies, and four runs scored.
