Ramos leads GCL Sox to victory as affiliates go undefeated


8/11 Cup of Coffee: Sox affiliates were a perfect 7 for 7 as Pawtucket and Salem won in extras and our Player of the Day led a GCL rout.

In an extra inning tussle, the Paw Sox came away with a victory over the rival Scranton Wilkes/Barre Yankees (NYY) 6-5. Fabio Castro received the start for Pawtucket, going 5.2 innings, allowing 1 run on 3 hits and 3 walks. Robert Coello followed Castro, hurling 1.1 innings, allowing 2 runs on 2 hits and a walk. Michael Bowden allowed 1 run on 2 hits in his 1.2 innings of relief. Fernando Cabrera picked up the victory for his 2.0 innings of work in which he allowed a run on 3 hits. Robert Manuel picked up the final out of the ballgame for his 10th save. Pawtucket got on the board in the third on Daniel Nava's two run home run to take a 2-0 lead. Jack Hannahan's solo home run in the fourth gave the PawSox a 3-0 advantage. With the game tied in the seventh, Yamaico Navarro laced a two out RBI single up the middle to put Pawtucket back on top 4-3. Scranton tied the game in the eighth to send the game into extra innings where Jarrod Saltalamacchia smoked an RBI double and Lars Anderson added an RBI single to give the PawSox a lead they would not relinquish. Nava was 3 for 6 to lead the Pawtucket offense.

Portland scored four in the eighth to brush away the Bowie Baysox (BAL) 6-3. Jeremy Kehrt pitched the first 3.0 innings, allowing 3 runs on 4 hits and 2 walks. Daniel Turpen picked up the victory for his 2.0 perfect innings of relief. Jason Rice picked his 12th save for a scoreless ninth inning. Nate Spears two run home run in the first gave Portland a quick 2-0 lead. Down 3-2 in the eighth, the Sea Dogs plated four runs on Ray Chang and Anthony Rizzo RBI singles, a Luis Exposito RBI double and an error by the first baseman. Spears and Che-Hsuan Lin each had 2 hits to lead the Portland offense.

Salem needed extra innings but walked off with a victory over the Kinston Indians (CLE) 4-3. Mark Holliman took the mound for the Red Sox, going 6.0 innings, allowing 2 runs on 6 hits and 2 walks while punching out 5. Zach Hammes added a scoreless inning of relief in the seventh. Cesar Cabral finished the game for Salem, going 3.0 innings, allowing a run on 4 hits and a walk to pick up his first victory of the year. Peter Hissey's RBI triple and Alex Hassan's RBI double gave the Red Sox a quick 3-0 advantage after one. With the game tied in the bottom of the tenth, Salem rallied and walked off with a win on Oscar Tejeda's RBI single with the bases loaded. Mitch Dening was 3 for 5 from the top of the order to lead the Red Sox offense.

Greenville's four first innings runs were enough to send away the Rome Braves (ATL) 4-1. Player of the Week Jeremy Hazelbaker knocked in the first two runs on his RBI double and Reynaldo Rodriguez followed with a two run home run to give the Drive a 4-0 advantage. Manuel Rivera made the lead hold up during his 6.0 innings of work, allowing just 1 run on 4 hits while striking out 8. Jeremiah Bayer pitched 3.0 scoreless innings for his 6th save. Derrik Gibson was 2 for 2 from the top of the order to lead the Drive offense.

Lowell used some power to shut down the State College Spikes (PIT) 5-2. Madison Younginer turned in perhaps his best effort of the season, hurling 6.0 scoreless innings while allowing just 3 hits. Cesare Angeloni pitched the seventh and allowed 1 run on 2 hits. Michael Hacker picked up his first save for his 2.0 innings of work in which he allowed 1 run on 2 hits and a walk while punching out 4. Brandon Jacobs and David Renfroe smacked solo home runs in the second to give Lowell a 2-0 lead. The Spinners added singular runs in the sixth, seventh and eighth on a Josue Peley RBI double and single and a Jose Iglesias RBI single. Iglesias was 3 for 4 to lead the Lowell offense and is now hitting .435 on his rehab assignment.

The GCL Red Sox nearly had the best of both worlds as they crushed the GCL Orioles (BAL) 14-0. Sergio Gomez, Raynel Velette, and T.J. Large combined for a one hit shutout with the lone Orioles hit coming with 2 down in the seventh inning. Highly touted Adalberto Ibarra made his professional debut by going 1 for 2 with an RBI single and 2 runs scored. Keury De La Cruz and Trygg Danforth added RBI singles for their only hits of the contest. The star of the contest was Henry Ramos, who went 3 for 5 with a home run, double and 6 RBI.

In another extra inning contest, the DSL Red Sox were walk off winners over the DSL Indians (CLE) 7-6. Yunior Ortega tossed the first 4.0 innings, allowing 6 runs (3 earned) on 8 hits and a walk. Ellis Jimenez kept his club in the ballgame by hurling 6.0 scoreless innings to pick up the victory. Curtney Doran's RBI double in the first tied the score at 1-1. In the third, a Jair Bogaerts three run home run gave the Red Sox a 4-1 lead. After the Indians plated two in the top half of the fourth, the Red Sox responded with two of their own on a pair of Indians errors. With the game tied in the tenth, Xander Bogaerts roped a bases loaded RBI single to send the Red Sox home with a victory.

Player of the Night: Henry Ramos, who led the GCL Red Sox to a 14-0 rout as he went 3 for 5 with a home run, a double, and 6 RBI. Ramos also added a run scored and a stolen base as he gave the GCL Orioles trouble.
