Pawtucket WINS! 2-1. Another game I didn't do because I was on vacation in Toledo. And it was Lucky's birthday!
Starting tart was Tony Pena Jr, who was really, really smelling good. He looked good, too: Pena pitched six shut out innings, with four strikeouts and a walk. And four hits, yeah, four hits and none for extra bases YEEEAAAAAHHHHH!!! See that? I just got worked up over Tony Pena Jr.
Oppo guy was lefty Ramon Garcia. Garcia could not get that last out in the fifth inning. Hey, what happened? Well, Tony Thomas led off with a double. Garcia struck out former Mud Hen and current question mark Brent Dlugach. Matt Sheely popped out in foul territory. Two outs and Thomas is hanging out at second, waiting for his chance. Tony Thomas is an old soul.
Ronald Bermudez was the next batter, and good old Ronny doubled, bringing Thomas around to score. Thomas was later quoted as saying, "Come on, Ronny, mellow off! You're really bringing me over, man!" 1-0 Pawsox!
And so it was that Garcia was replaced by Australian reliever Fu-Te Ni. Ni finished off the fifth inning by first hitting Che-Hsuan Lin with a pitch and then getting Iggy Iglesias to ground out. Ta-da!
The Red Sox scored again in the seventh inning, when Tony Thomas homered off reliever/sprocket jockey Matt Hoffman. No one was on base.
Dennis Neuman! Neuman took over for Pena, allowed Toledo to score a run. This was mostly thanks to the Viking at first base, Ryan Strieby. I don't know, look it up. Someone hit a ground ball, okay?
That's all for today. I have to buy a car and the research is killing me.
