Game Times and Pitchers for 4/17/12

17 Apr

The PawSox are currently 4-2 in the midst of their nine-game road trip and will look to keep that momentum going when Justin Germano hits the hill tonight in Syracuse. He has thrown five innings and allowed 2 earned runs in each of his two starts.

Portland will be hoping to put last night’s ninth-inning collapse behind them quickly as Brock Huntzinger looks for his first win in his third start of the season. For New Britain – winners of their last five – David Bromberg gets his first start of the year. In three relief appearances he has allowed 9 earned runs over two innings.

Chad Jenkins gets the nod for New Hampshire in Manchester. Although he pitched well last time out against New Britain, he did allow 3 home runs and has allowed 4 in thirteen innings this season. With temps expected to be near 70 degrees at game time, the weather may be more in the Tennessee native’s favor tonight than it was last Thursday night.

Pawtucket Red Sox (Justin Germano 1-1, 3.60)
vs. Syracuse Chiefs (Yunesky Maya 1-1, 4.50) @ 6:00 p.m.

New Britain Rock Cats (David Bromberg 0-0, 40.50)
vs. Portland Sea Dogs (Brock Huntzinger 0-2, 11.57) @ 6:00 p.m.

Binghamton Mets (Collin McHugh 1-1, 2.31)

12 Apr

After all four local teams took the big  “L” yesterday. We are assured of at least one team taking a “W” tonight as we get our first head-to-head matchup when New Britain travels to Manchester to take on New Hampshire in their home opener. The Fisher Cats will have the added bonus of raising their 2011 Eastern League Championship banner and we will be there to cover all of the festivities.

Portland will also get their home opener tomorrow night when the BMets come to town. The Sea Dogs are hoping that the friendly confines of Hadlock Field are what the doctor ordered after a tough 1-6 road trip to start the season.

Pawtucket plays game two in Rochester and we should also be getting some coverage of this one, should the weather hold, as our very own Thomas Saucke will be in attendance.
