Game Times and Pitchers for 5/10/12

10 May

The PawSox will be looking to take three of their four games from Rochester with a noon start time today. Since starting May 0-3, Pawtucket has since gone 5-1 and are 4-2 overall versus the Red Wings this season. Brandon Duckworth gets his sixth start of the season as he looks to remain undefeated on the year. In two seasons with the PawSox, Duckworth is 12-6 with a 3.83 ERA. He will be opposed by Luke French who gets his second start with Rochester after going 2-0 with a 1.80 ERA in five starts with New Britain.

French’s old Rock Cat teammate Logan Darnell will look to keep New Britain on the winning track as they face off against Eastern Division leader Reading. The RPhils currently hold only a ½ game lead over the Rock Cats and this is the first time the two teams will square off this year. Darnell will get his seventh start of the year and fifth at New Britain Stadium.

The Fisher Cats continue to stay south of .500 thanks to a 3-5 May thus far, but tonight Chad Jenkins will be looking to help turn around their fortunes as he gets the ball in his seventh start. Jenkins, who is 1-1 versus the BMets this year, has thrown 6 innings in each of his last three starts, but he has allowed 20 hits and 3 home runs in that span. Overall he has allowed a league-high 7 home runs this season.

Portland is the only team on the road today as they invade Trenton for the second time this season. It’s the third series for the Sox-Yankees AA affiliates, with the Thunder holding a clear edge, winning five of the six games played. Chris Martin gets the nod for the Sea Dogs in search of his third straight victory. He does have a start against Trenton under his belt when he went 4 2/3 innings against the Thunder back on April 11th, allowing only 1 earned run and 3 hits while striking out 5.
