Pawtucket Red Sox Game 1 Notes: Extras At McCoy, Full Inning-By-Inning Game Notes

First inning notes:

Kendrick gives up lead-off base hit to Zack Granite, which gives Granite a 15-game hitting streak. Granite tried to steal second base but was thrown out with a perfect thrown down by Pawtucket catcher Blake Swihart.

J.B Shuck singled to left field and then catchers interference by Swihart allowed Matt Hague to reach first base to make it two on with one-man out. Kendrick was able to get Mitch Garver to fly out to Rusney Castillo for the second out of the inning.

To get out of the first inning Kendrick got Red Wings left fielder Tommy Field to ground out back to the pitcher and threw it to first-basemen Jantzen Witte for the out.

Home Half:

To start the home half of the first inning PawSox center-fielder Rusney Castillo gave Red Wings pitcher Yohan Pino a ride out to deep center field but Granite was able to reel it in against the padding in-between the structure in center and the metal bleachers.

Shortstop Ryan Court grounded out to third-basemen Leonardo Reginatto. Then to end the home half of the first, left fielder Steve Selsky grounded out to short-stop Engelb Vielma whose low throw to first was picked out of the dirt by Rochester first basemen Byung Ho Park.

0-0 after 1 full

Second Inning Notes:

Park led-off for the Red Wings, and was able to draw a single by dropping a ball in front of right-fielder Brian Bogusevic.

The first PawSox out of the inning game via Reginaetto, by grounding a ball to Court at short. Court then tagged Bogusevic going to second, and then decided to hold onto the ball instead of trying to get Reginaetto running to first.

Kendrick then walked second-basemen Bengie Gonzalez, which made it two-runners on with one out. Vielma grounded out to second to advance the runners to second and third with two-outs. To get out of the jam Kendrick was able to get the red-hot Granite to strike out after a five pitch at-bat.

Home Half: 

Pawtucket’s designated-hitter Bryce Brentz led things off in the home half of the second trying extend his seven game hitting streak. Bryce was able to reach first-base on an erratic throw from Vielma at short, it was ruled as a fielding error.

Brentz was then picked off at first base and then Bogusevic popped out to third base to make it a quick two outs for Pino. The next batter Swihart, stuck out on three pitchers to end the inning.

0-0 through 2 full.

Third Inning Notes:

Kendrick got Shuck to ground out to Deven Marrero who is playing second-base in game 1 of the double-header. The next batter, Hauge, smacked a single out to Selsky in left with one man out. Red Wings catcher, Mitch Garver, followed by Hauge with a single to left of his own to make it 1st and 2nd with one man out.

The third inning in a row in which Kendrick had to deal with multiple base-runners.

Kendrick was able to get out of another jam though thanks to Marrero who took a Tommy Field ground-ball and turned it into a double-play.

Home Half: 

To start the home half of things in the third Marrero was able to draw a walk on 6 pitches with a full-count after falling behind 1-2 against Pino.

The next batter, Pawtucket third-basemen Matt Dominguez skyed a fly ball to right field for the first out of the inning. Witte followed it up with a pop-up to Gonzalez in shallow right field for the second out of the inning. To end the inning with Castillo at the plate, Marrero was thrown out trying to steal second by Garver.

Despite having two base-runners through three, the PawSox did not record a hit through three full innings.

0-0 through 3 full innings.

Fourth Inning Notes:

To start things in the fourth, Kendrick hit Park on what appeared to be the wrist area with Park narrowly avoiding getting hit in the head.

After that Kendrick was able to get Reginatto to double into a double play to make it two-outs in the inning. Shortly thereafter Gonzalez lined out to Witte at first to end the inning for Kendrick.

Home Half: 

Castillo started things off with another fly-out to center field to make it a quick first out for Pino. Court then struck out on three straight pitches looking like he was swinging for the fences making it it a quick-two-outs to start the home half of the fourth.

The left-fielder, Selsky, battled off a couple of tough pitches but ultimately flied out to Gonzalez in shallow right-field.

0-0 through 4 full.

Fifth Inning Notes:

Kendrick started off by giving up back-to-back singles to Vielma and Granite to make it runners on first-and-third with no-men out in the inning. Granite took off and stole second base, Swihart made a bid to snag him, but the tag was late and broke up the double-play possibility.

Shuck grounded out with Marrero making a great play to get Shuck at first-base. Shuck however was able to drive in a run and make it a 1-0 game and a runner on third with one man out. The next batter for Rochester was Hague who was able to drive the ball to right field, but it wasn’t deep enough to score the runner making it two-outs and Granite still 90-feet away at third.

Kendrick was able to get Garver to strike-out and get out of the inning only giving up one run. All things considered having runners on second and third with no-men out and only giving up 1 run is something Manager Kevin Boles has to be happy with.

Home Half: 

Brentz kicked things off by grounding out to Vielma at short, then Bogusevic grounded out to Park at first to make it two outs in the inning.

What looked like a potential first hit of the ball-game turned out to be Blake Swihart softly lining out to Field in left-field.

Five innings to start the game without a hit.

0-1 through 5 full innings.

Pawtucket Red Sox

Sixth Inning Notes:

Kendrick’s night was done after the fifth, the pitch the sixth Boles called upon Noe Ramirez. Ramirez started out his night by getting Field to ground-out to Court at short.

Park followed up with a single to center field to give the Red Wings their eighth hit of the night.

Ramirez was able to get out of the inning with the PawSox defense turning their third-play of the game with Dominguez fielding Reginatto’s grounder at third and flipping it to second and to first to turn two.

Home Half: 

Marrero popped out foul to Park at first to start the home half of the sixth, Dominguez struck-out to give Pino his third strike-out of the game.

Witte ended the home half by grounding out to shortstop.

0-1 through 6 full innings.

Seventh Inning Notes:

Ramirez stayed in the game to pitch his second inning in relief of Kendrick. Boles was rewarded for keeping Ramirez in with the right-handed reliever striking out Gonzalez to start the seventh inning.

Ramirez then proceeded to strike-out Vielma on four pitches for the second-out of the inning.

The third and final out of the inning was Granite grounding out to Marrero at second.

Home Half: 

The PawSox broke up Pino’s no hitter in the bottom of the seventh with Castillo singling up the middle past the glove of the shortstop. Pino was visibly irritated by the play.

Pino did not lose control though and got Court to ground into a double play to make in two-outs in the seventh.

The second hit of the night for the PawSox came with Selsky singling on a soft fly ball to center-field. With the tie runner on base Bryce Brentz slaps a hard-hit ball in the gap between the left and center fielder scoring Selsky with Brentz stopping at second fora double.

Brentz’s double is the third PawSox hit of the night and the first extra base hit.

Pino then intentionally walked Bogusevic to get to Swihart and make it a play at any base. Swihart flew out to center field to force the Red Wings into extra innings.

Eighth Inning Notes:

Ramirez got his third inning of relief and started it off by getting Shuck to ground-out to Marrero at second. Ramirez almost got Hague to ground out as well but a dribbler down the first base line was bobbled by Witte after it bounced over the first base bag. Was ruled a hit.

Garver then flew out to Castillo in center field and with Field at the plate Hague stole second base to move into scoring position. But Ramirez worked his way around the runner in scoring position by ringing up Field for his third strikeout of the night.

Home Half: 

Marrero kicked things off with a good swing but flew out to Shuck out in right-field. Then Dominguez popped out to the catcher.

With two-outs Witte launched a solo home-run into the grass behind the left field wall for a PawSox victory.

Time of game: 2:07

Pawtucket Red Sox Lose 6-2 To Bisons Despite Good Start By Elias

The Pawtucket Red Sox dropped game 2 of their 4 game series with the Buffalo Bisons on Tuesday night 6-2 at McCoy Stadium. There were 6,502 fans at McCoy Stadium tonight.

Roenis Elias Pitched much better then what his pitching line showed. He gave up 4 runs in 7 innings, but it should have only been 2 run. Elias was also pretty close to doing something that Craig Kimbrel and Rick Porcello have done this season.

The Paw Sox saw all of their offense from a two run home run from Matt Dominguez in the 4th inning. It was a home run that barley got out of the park.

Pawtucket Red Sox Play Buffalo In Game 2 Of Their Series Tonight

The Pawtucket Red Sox (61-67) will play host to the Buffalo Bisons (58-70) tonight at McCoy Stadium. The pitching match up for tonights’ game is Joe Biagini (0-1, 3.48 ERA) for the Buffalo Bisons. He will be up against Roenis Elias (1-3, 7.27 ERA) for the Pawtucket Red Sox.

In the first game of the four game series, the Buffalo Bisons beat the Pawtucket Red Sox 6-3 in front of 5,997 fans. The Pawtucket Red Sox were leading 3-2 heading into the 9th inning, with Edgar Olmos on the mound, Gregorio Petit hit a game tying home run just into the Paw Sox bullpen. Later in the inning, Christian Lopes hit a go-ahead 3 run home run to give the Bisons a 6-3 lead.

All 3 runs from the Christian Lopes home run were unearned. That was due to a ball that Jantzen Witte threw into the dirt that Blake Swihart couldn’t pick out of the dirt. Swihart was charged with an error on the play that continued the inning. Other then that, Swihart looked like he could do well at 1st base if he is able to get reps at first base.
