Game Times and Pitchers for 5/18/12

18 May

The Sea Dogs return to Hadlock Field for a brief three-game homestand against the BMets. Billy Buckner will hit the hill for Portland in his eighth start of the season. He has only faced three teams all season; New Britain twice, Binghamton twice and Trenton three times. Of his prior two outings against the Mets, Buckner has gone 0-1 over 10 innings, allowing 5 runs, 10 hits and 2 walks, with 10 strikeouts.

Ross Ohlendorf gets his eighth start of the year for Pawtucket, in search of his first win since April 21st, which happened to come against the same Durham Bulls that he will face tonight. In that game Ohlendorf scattered 6 hits and a walk for 4 runs over 5 2/3 innings. He will be opposed by Chris Archer, the reigning International League Pitcher of the Week and third-ranked prospect in the Tampa Bay Rays system according to Baseball America.

New Hampshire’s Yohan Pino will be looking to notch his fourth win over his last five starts. He has allowed only 5 runs over his last 26 1/3 innings, striking out 24 in the process. He did not factor into the decision when he started against the Thunder back on May 6th. In that game he allowed 2 runs on 6 hits and a walk.

B.J. Hermsen will get the nod for New Britain in Reading. Fresh off his first win of the year, Hermsen beat these very RPhils last Saturday after allowing 2 runs and 7 hits over 7 innings. He has gone 6 1/3 innings or more in each of his three starts with New Britain since being called up from Ft. Myers.
