Pawtucket wins, 7-1. Win goes to Terry Doyle and Anthony Slama takes the loss. FREE ANTHONY SLAMA!!
Doyle pitched five innings and gave up one run on two hits. Doyle also struck out five and walked one batter.
Starting pitcher for Rochester was Shairon Martis, who you probably remember from other IL matchups. Martis pitched 3 2/3 innings and gave up one run on four htis. In fact, this game was tied at 1-1 until the sixth inning.
The Red Wings scored first when left fielder Chris Colabello hit an RBI single. Pawtucket responded with an RBI single of their own in the second inning, which tied the game up until the sixth inning.
Anthony Slama had entered the game in the fifth inning to get one out. Slama faced JC Linares in the top of the sixth and walked him. Left fielder Jeremy Hazelbaker and second baseman Brock Holt hit back-to-back singles to load the bases. For who? For Jose Iglesias, that's who! But Slama walked Iglesias, bringing Linares in and giving Pawtucket the 2-1 lead.
Enter lefty Caleb Thielbar, who says crap like, "RANDOLPH ROCKETS, AMIRITE MAW AND PAW?" Thielbar had to face David Ortiz and probably wasn't scared. But he should have been. Ortiz hit a two-run single. Catcher Ryan Lavarnway then hit a sac fly for the first out. And then Bryce Brentz K'd to make it two outs. But Thielbar hit Brandon Snyder with a pitch. And Drew Sutton hit a two-run double. Crazy inning.
Chris Carpenter's eyebrows came and closed the game out, not that it was a save situation.
worms to ex-girlfriends:
1. Just remember, team: The important thing today is that David Ortiz progresses and that his Achilles feels fine. Now go out there and pretend anyone cares about the rest of you!
THIS AFTERNOON. Rochester Red Wings again! Looks cold and cloudy but don't let that stop you.
