Triple-A Pawtucket Red Sox

Final Score: Lehigh Valley IronPigs 9, PawSox 8

Notable Pitchers:

Jonathan Aro (1.1 IP, 5 H, 4 R, 4 ER, BB)

Dayan Diaz (3 IP, H, 0 R, 2 BB, 3 K)

Dalier Hinojosa (3.2 IP, 5 H, 4 R, ER, 2 BB, 5 K)

Joe Kelly (IP, H, 0 R)

  • Kelly only lasted one inning last night before being hit with a line drive and being forced to exit the game. The ball struck off his right forearm and hopefully this doesn’t prove to be a serious injury in what’s been a disappointing season for Kelly.

Notable Position Players:

Jackie Bradley Jr. (0-5, BB)

Garin Cecchini (3-5, BB)

  • That makes two straight excellent games for Cecchini, who has now reached base four times in back-to-back contests. He’s still having an awful year by the numbers, slashing only .207/.280/.297 but if he can heat up in the final stretches of the season, he could at least generate some trade value.

Allen Craig (1-5, 2 K)

Daniel Nava (0-4, BB, 2 K)
