Lars levels Reading in Sea Dogs slugfest

8/6 Cup of Coffee: In Tuesday action, the PawSox were shut out by Scranton five-nil. Bartolo Colon got a rehab start for Pawtucket, and allowed 3 runs in two-thirds of an inning. Michael Bowden made the best of a six-inning relief appearance, allowing only one run on three hits and three walks. Dusty Brown had two of Pawtucket's six hits.

In the Eastern League, Portland dogged Reading 13-3. Lars Anderson led the offensive fireworks, with a double, a home run, a walk, three runs scored, and four runs batted over five plate appearances. Mickey Hall, Mark Wagner, Argenis Diaz, and Iggy Suarez all had multi-hit games as well. The recently recalled Ryne Lawson pitched admirably in what is likely to be a spot start for the Sea Dogs. He earned the win, allowing two runs over five innings, and striking out five Phillies in the process. Richie Lentz lowered his ERA to 0.66 with two scoreless innings.

On the west coast, Lancaster beat Bakersfield 8-2. Blake Maxwell took home the win, going six shutout innings, striking out five Blaze. Yamaico Navarro raised his average to .372 with a two-for-four night and a home run, and Luis Exposito hit his ninth home run for the JetHawks and twentieth overall for the season.

Greenville got shellacked for the second straight night, falling 11-2 to Charleston. Michael Almanzar had two hits for the Drive, bringing his average up to the Mendoza Line. Felix Doubront's outing could serve to dispel the rumors of his promotion to Lancaster. Doubront took his seventh loss, allowing seven runs and seven hits over three innings. Ryne Miller and Mike Rozier failed to fare any better in relief.
Lowell had the night off.

Down in Fort Myers, the GCL Pirates downed the Red Sox by a score of 5-1. Andrew Frezza and Joantoni Garcia mustered the only two hits for the Sox. Former Little League World Series star Dennis Neuman continued his dominance of the complex league, striking out three over two perfect innings. The 18 year old has yet to allow an earned run over 10.2 innings in the GCL.

In the Dominican, The Red Sox were nipped by the Pale Hose 5-4. Rafael Esiponza and Lewis Urena had three hits a piece. Former outfielder and converted pitcher Wilfi Santana got the start for the Sox, and struck out four in five innings of one run ball.

Player of the Night: Anderson, who's just getting the job done against the Eastern League opposition.
