GCL Sox eliminated from post-season contention


8/20 Cup-of-Coffee: Our apologies that today's cup is a day late and a dollar short.  One of our writers moved across the country this week and we had a mis-communication regarding today's cup-of-coffee responsibilities.  Here's a 30-second breakdown:

The PawSox Lose to Columbus, 7-1. Will Middlebrooks went 0-for-4 in his Triple-A debut, while Greg Smith was stellar in his first start with Pawtucket, allowing only 1 run in 7 innings.  Portland was defeated by Binghamton, 10-1. Jeremy Hazelbaker went 2-for-4 in an otherwise subpar offensive showing for the Sea Dogs.  Salem's double-header was rained out.  Greenville downed Savannah, 3-1. Miguel Celestino picked up his 9th win, striking out 4 and walking none in 6 innings.  Meanwhile, Lowell outslugged Batavia, 12-8. Travis Shaw led the offense, going 3-for-4  with a double, a home run, a walk, and 4 RBI.  The GCL Red Sox were eliminated from post-season contention by the Twins, 7-1.  2011 second round pick Williams Jerez went 3-for-4 for the Sox.  In the penultimate game of the DSL season, the DSL Sox lost to the Indians, 5-2.  Sully Bonnelly took the loss for the Sox, allowing 3 earned runs on 7 hits in 5 innings.

Player of the night: Travis Shaw, who led Lowell to a 12-8 victory over Batavia.
