Charlotte wins again, 5-4.
Mike Bowden got the start for Pawtucket. Bowden gave up two runs on six hits in his six inning stint. He walked the first batter of the game, Jason Bourgeois, and gave up a home run to third baseman Javier Colina. Six Charlotte batters struck out against Bowden.
Beau Vaughan went an inning and two thirds and exited the infield a little black and blue. Vaughan allowed three runs to score and took the loss. Hunter Jones finished off the game and allowed no further runs, but Pawtucket could not add to their four runs.
Jack Egbert got the win for the Knights. He also pitched six innings and gave up a pair of runs. MacDougal gave up a run in the seventh and another in the eighth, when he walked a couple of Jeffs and then let a couple of wild pitches fly while Danielson was at the plate.
Jason Childers shut the door on the Red Sox in the ninth and got the save. Tragic. No one on the home time could muster more than a single today.
1. Pawtucket also lost yesterday, 3-1.
2. What is this crap with "Buchholz can't get the job done, good thing we've got Colon!" I mean, how much ScotchGuard are you huffing to think Bartolo is gonna be a key guy in the Boston rotation?
3. Chris Carter is on the DL, Sandy Madera is off the DL. Van Every is ailing but I don't think he's officially on the DL. Eric Hull has the sniffles and is day-to-day. Jeff Natale may have rickets. Dusty Brown is experiencing the onset of ennui and erectile disfunction.
see you tomorrow.
