Pawtucket WINS! 5-1
Very nice work by both the pitching and the bats tonight. Wow. It's been so long since I've said that. Devern Hansack started, pitched five and 2/3, got 10 K's. Breslow finished off the sixth and nailed down the seventh. Hansen pitched the last two, one hit, one walk, no runs, 2 K's.
Hansack gave up the only run in the 5th, a solo homer by right fielder Luis Terrero.
Three home runs by Pawtucket: Ed Rogers, Joe McEwing, and Kevin Cash. Cash's was sort of cheap. The fence over in right center is only ten feet high. Imagine! They do say that's a crappy park.
Hansack is the first pitcher since Bronson Arroyo in 2003 to get 10 or more strikeouts in his Pawtucket debut.
Charlie Haeger was the Charlotte loserhead, giving up seven hits and four runs in six innings.
By the way, Craig Hansen is listed at 185 lbs. Yeah, RIGHT! More like 210-220 these days... yikes. I got a good look at him in Lincoln and he looks a lot heftier than last year. His noggin alone must weigh 40 lbs.
Two games left in South Carolina. Then Durham. Then ME!
