8/3 Cup of Coffee


August 2nd wasn't exactly kind to the Red Sox minor league system. While the big club won, its minor league partners were not nearly so fortunate. The Sea Dogs were victims of a 13-6 drubbing at the hands of the SeaWolves, with Frank Brooks allowing seven Erie runs in just five innings. David Bacani drove in two-thirds of the Sea Dogs' runs, going 2-for-4 with a home run, while Jacoby Ellsbury added two singles of his own, along w/swiping a base.

The Blue Rocks lost a slightly tighter game, allowing a run in the bottom of the ninth to lose 5-4. Beau Vaughan took the loss, allowing a hit and two walks while only retiring one Frederick batter. Jay Johnson went 2-for-5 with a home run to lead Wilmington, with John Otness, Jeff Corsaletti, and Scott White also recording two hits. John Barnes started the game well, allowing three unearned runs in five innings and striking out seven.

Greenville played a barnburner vs. Lake County, but ultimately could not come out ahead. Both teams had three runs apiece after nine innings, added two more in the eleventh inning, but Lake County prevailed in the sixteenth inning, leaving the final score at 6-5. Yahmed Yema led the Drive with three hits in seven at-bats, including a home run. Mark Wagner was 2-for-3 with a double, Luis Soto was 2-for-7, Chris Turner was 2-for-7 with a home run, and Dustin Kelly was 2-for-6. Chris Jones started for the Drive, going five innings and allowing two runs. Ismael Casillas had a fine relief appearance, going four innings and striking out seven, giving up only two hits and a walk.

The Spinners were shut out again by Hudson Valley, falling 3-0 while only having four hits. Travis Beazley got the start for the Lowell nine, and pitched five innings while allowing all three runs. Jean Guillen and T.J. Large combined for four innings of shut-out relief to keep the game close.

Player of the Day:
Yahmed Yema, the only player in the minor league system with three hits (plus he had a home run).
