Paw Sox Shutout Mud Hens 6-0 Behind Outstanding Bullpen

The Paw Sox shut out the Toledo Mud Hens 6-0 on Tuesday night at McCoy Stadium. The game began with a quick 10 minute rain delay, but that didn’t faze the Paw Sox at all.

The Paw Sox got the scoring quickly in the 1st inning, thanks to a double by Matt Dominguez that drove in 2. Later in the game, Bryce Brentz drove in 3 runs thanks to a 2 run home run and a double.

With Chandler Shepherd making the spot start for the Paw Sox, it was evident that the Paw Sox were going to use the bull pen a lot tonight. Thanks to 5 pitchers, the Paw Sox combined  for a 5 hit shutout over the Mud Hens.

Paw Sox Offense

The Paw Sox offense got off to a quick start in the first inning. With Daniel Norris making a rehab start for the Tigers, the Paw Sox rattled him early. In the 1st inning, Aneury Tavarez had a lead off walk and then Heiker Meneses singled. Then with 2 outs, Matt Dominguez ripped a double down the left field line. Then a throwing error allowed Dominguez to score to give the Paw Sox a 3-0 lead.

The Paw Sox then added on to their lead in the 3rd inning. After Norris retired the 1st 2 batters, he walked Ryan Court. Then Bryce Brentz hit his 20th home run of the season into the metal bleachers in right-center field. That gave the Paw Sox a 5-0 lead. The home run by Brentz put him in a tie for the 2nd most amount of home runs in the league.

The Paw Sox scored their 6th run of the night in the 8th inning off of old friend Edward Mujica. Following a lead off triple by Heiker Meneses, Bryce Brentz hit a booming double to center field.

Rafael Devers had a pretty good night tonight as the Paw Sox DH. In 4 AB’s he went 2 for 4 with 2 singles. You can see footage of those singles below.
