Carter helps lead PawSox to doubleheader sweep


9/7 Cup of Coffee: Pawtucket took both games of their doubleheader with Syracuse. The PawSox trounced the Chiefs, 12-5, in the first game. The offense pounded out 17 hits, led by Travis Denker, who had 3 and also scored 3 runs. Dusty Brown had 3 hits as well. Sean Danielson went 2 for 4 with 3 runs scored and 2 RBI. Adam Mills (2-2) got the win, giving up 4 runs on 9 hits and a walk in 5 innings of work. Pawtucket hammered Syracuse, 10-2, in the nightcap. Charlie Zink (6-15) got the win, allowing 1 run on 5 hits over 5 innings. Chris Carter went 4 for 4 and scored 4 times. Jeff Natale had 2 hits, including his 3rd home run of the season. Aaron Bates also had 2 hits in the game and scored twice.

New Hampshire
downed Portland, 8-3. With the Sea Dogs ahead 3-2, the Fisher Cats scored 4 times in the 8th inning on a grand slam homer by DH Moses Sierra. The Manchester squad added 2 more in the 9th to give the team its final margin of victory. Ryan Lawson threw 7 strong innings, giving up 2 runs on 5 hits and a walk. He struck out 6. Andrew Dobies (2-3) pitched the 8th and was charged with the blown save and the loss. He gave up 4 runs on 3 hits and a walk. Yamaico Navarro was 2 for 2 with a home run. Jon Still also had 2 hits in the game.

Lynchburg scored a run in the 1st inning and held on
to score a 1-0 win over Salem. With 1 game remaining, the Red Sox need either a win or a Kinston loss today to capture the final playoff spot without needing a one-game playoff. Eammon Portice (8-8) took the loss despite throwing 6 strong innings. He gave up a run on 6 hits and did not allow a walk while fanning 6. That gave him 141 strikeouts for the season, which with 1 game remaining leads the Carolina League. The offense managed just 4 hits in the game, with no runner advancing beyond second base. Tim Federowicz went 2 for 3.

to a 6-2 win over Asheville. The 5 runs came by way of a walk and 5 singles. Pete Hissey went 3 for 4 and scored twice. Will Middlebrooks had 2 hits and scored a run. Oscar Tejeda had 2 hits, a run scored and 2 RBI.

Lowell came back from an early 2-0 deficit
to down Brooklyn, 4-2. Trailing 2-1 in the 6th, the Spinners scored twice on 2 singles and a throwing error by Cyclones pitcher Chris Hilliard. His wild throw to first base on a sacrifice bunt attempt allowed both runners to score. Michael Almanzar went 3 for 4 and scored twice. Alex Hassan went 2 for 4 and scored a run. Tom Ebert (4-0) earned the win, pitching 3.1 innings of relief. He gave up 2 runs on 4 hits and a walk.
