Pawtucket Red Sox Game 2 Notes: High Scoring Game At McCoy For Game Two Of The Doubleheader

First Inning Notes:

Marcus Walden started the game off by walking  Zack Granite. Granite then took off for second and the stole the bag successfully with the throw from catcher Dan Butler being well late.

Walden got J.B Shuck to ground out to second-basemen Deven Marrero to get the first out of the game. Granite advances to third base with one out.

Against DH Matt Hague, Walden threw six pitches and then on the seventh he threw a wild pitch scoring Granite from third and making it a 1-0 game.

Hague ended up walking on the eighth pick and third basemen Tommy Field followed it up with a single threw the right side of the infield.

Walden was then able to get right-fielder Nick Goodrum to strike out on four pitches to make it two outs in the first. Byung Ho Park the designated hitter, singled to Rusney Castillo in center field.

Run scored on the play but Castillo was able to throw out Field trying to get to third base.

Home Half: 

To kick off the home half of things Castillo singled past the dive of Engelb Vielma at short and into left-field to get the lead runner on. It took the PawSox 6 innings to get a hit in game 1, game 2? One batter.

Red Wings starter Matt Tracy then hit third-basemen Ryan Court making it runners on first and second with no-men out. Tracy’s control issues continued by walking first basemen Sam Travis to load the bases with no-men out.

Bryce Brentz was given the bases loaded opportunity and he took the second pitch of the at-bat out of the ball-park for a grand slam.

The location of the ball was similar to where the Janzten Witte walk-off home run ball in game 1 of the doubleheader. Score after the grand slam 4-2 in favor of the Pawtucket Red Sox.

Second Inning Notes:

Former New York Yankee catcher John Ryan Murphy kicked things off in the second inning with a fly-out to Brentz out in left field.

Gonzalez up second, jumped on the first pitch from Walden and sent it right back up the middle for a hard hit single. Gonzalez then stole second base for the Red Wings second stolen base in as many innings.

Vielma the third batter of the inning blooped a ball that landed just fair in left field which scored Gonzalez from second and was ruled as a double. 4-3 game in favor of the Pawtucket Red Sox.

After falling behind Granite 2-0, Walden was able to get him to ground-out to the shortstop Mike Miller. Vielma advanced to third base with two men out. Walden’s control issues continued for him though as he gave up a two-run home-run to Shuck to make it a 5-4 game in favor of the Red Wings.

The hit parade against Walden did not stop there though, Walden gave up a single to Hague and then Field hit a two-run shot of his own to make it 7-4.

Marrero saved Walden by fielding a Niko Goodrum grounder and tossing it on to first to end the top half of the second. Through two innings  a total of 11 runs have been scored.

Home Half:

Mike Miller grounded out to Gonzalez at second to start out the home half of the second inning.

Pawtucket Red Sox catcher Dan Butler drilled his first hit of the day to right field for a single bringing the PawSox back to the top half of the lineup. Rusney Castillo, the very next batter, grounded into an inning ending double play.

4-7 after two full innings in favor of the Red Wings.

Third Inning Notes:

Walden took the mound in the third with a right-handed reliever warming up in the pen behind him just in case things go south. To start off the inning Walden gave up a single to Byung Ho Park, on a throw from second base Marrero made a throwing error allowing Park to advance to second.

Marrero made a play on the next batter with Murphy grounding out to second for the first out of the inning and advancing Park to third. Walden then got Gonzalez to line out to Travis and Vielma to strike out to get out of the third.

Home Half:

Court led things off for Pawtucket in the bottom of the third inning and flew out to right field. Sam Travis was up next and was able to draw his second walk of the game off of Tracy.

The next batter up for Pawtucket was Brentz who smacked a ball past the outstretched glove of Field at third base who just missed the ball on the dive. Runners were at first and second with one-man out for Selsky.

Unfortunately for the PawSox Selsky grounded into a doubleplay to end the inning.

Walden’s night was done after three innings of work. Manager Kevin Boles uses right-handed reliever Brandon Workman in relief.

Granite started off the inning with a line drive to Brentz in left-field for a single. With Shuck at the plate Granite was thrown out by Butler trying to steal second-base. Rochester Manager Mike Quade came out and argued the call and was tossed out of the game by third-base umpire Blake Carnahan.

With one-out, Workman walked Shuck and then was able to get Hague to fly out to Selsky out in right field. With two-outs in the inning Shuck stole second base with ease.

Workman got out of the inning by getting Field to ground out to Miller at short.

Home Half:

In his fourth inning of work, Tracy faced Allen Craig. Craig faced 6 pitches until popping up to short-stop Vielma who caught the ball in short left field. Marrero, the second batter of the inning, grounded out to Gonzalez at second to make it two outs in the home half of the fourth.

5-7 after five full innings from McCoy.

Sixth Inning Notes:

Workman is out to start his third inning of relief to face Gonzalez who is leading off the sixth inning. Gonzalez was able to draw a walk to have the lead runner on with no-outs.

With Vielma at the plate Workman was able to strike him out and then Butler threw down to second to catch the stealing Gonzalez for a double-play. He was able to then get Granite to shoot a grounder to Marrero, who made a great play to get to the ball up the middle, but there was no play to be made. Granite’s grounder ruled a hit, runner on 1st with two-outs in the inning.

With Shuck at the plate, Granite stole second-base to get into scoring position. Shortly thereafter, Shuck drew a walk which in turn created a mound visit with runners on first and second with two outs in the inning.

To end the inning Workman got Hague to fly out to Selsky out in right field.

Home Half:

Matt Tracy‘s night was done after five innings of work, reliever D.J. Baxendale came in to pitch the sixth inning. Baxendale got Brentz to fly out to right field for the first out of the inning and then got Selsky to fly out to Granite in center-field.

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.
