Game times and Pitchers for 5/9/12

9 May

Brett Cecil gets his fourth start of the season as the Fisher Cats and Sea Dogs jump start their three game series after a rain out on Tuesday. Cecil was expected to start the season with the Blue Jays, but was demoted at the last possible moment. Unfortunately he has yet to show any reason why he should be considered for a recall, allowing 10 earned runs and 20 hits over 12 1/3 innings. Stolmy Pimentel goes for Portland, still in search of his first AA victory in 18th try.

Justin Germano might not get any press as someone destined for the daily shuttle ride to Boston, but he is quietly putting together a solid campaign for the PawSox. In six starts he has allowed only 8 runs on 26 hits and 4 walks, with 22 strikeouts in 33 1/13 innings.

The Rock Cats put Steve Hirschfeld up against the BMets as they look to take both game of their rain shortened series. Despite pitching 5 or more innings in each of his six starts, Hirschfeld has picked up three straight losses, allowing 11 runs and 27 hits over 17 2/3 innings.

New Hampshire Fisher Cats (Brett Cecil 0-2, 7.30)
vs. Portland Sea Dogs (Stolmy Pimentel 0-0, 5.79) @ 6:00 p.m.

23 Apr

The PawSox suffered their first rain out of the season yesterday, so they will double-up against Durham tonight with two seven inning affairs starting at 5:05 p.m. The weather looks like it will clear in plenty of time for Pawtucket to put their six-game win streak to the test. Justin Germano gets the game one nod after tossing seven scoreless innings against Syracuse last Tuesday. Cook went the distance in a seven-inning game back on April 7th against Lehigh Valley. He faces Chris Archer, ranked by Baseball America as the No. 3 prospect in the Tampa Bay Rays system. It will be the fourth start for both Germano and Cook who have gone 5+ innings in each of their prior three.

The Sea Dogs pull into New Britain after wishing they were rained out yesterday in Binghamton where there Mets completed a four game sweep of the Dogs. Portland dropped two of three to the Rock Cats at Hadlock Field last week and have lost every game in which they have allowed four or more runs this season. In his last start, Portland’s Chris Hernandez struck out 8 Rock Cats and did not allow an earned run in 5 2/3 innings, but did not factor into the decision. New Britain gives David Bromberg his second start of the season. After opening the season in pen, he was stretched to three innings in his first start versus Portland last Tuesday when he allowed 1 run on 3 hits and 2 walks.

The New Hampshire Fisher Cats have an off day and will start a three game series in Binghamton on Tuesday.

Durham Bulls (Ryan Reid 2-0, 3.97) GAME 1
Pawtucket Red Sox (Justin Germano 1-1, 2.12) @ 5:05 p.m.

Durham Bulls (Chris Archer 1-2, 9.95) GAME 2
Pawtucket Red Sox (Aaron Cook 2-0, 1.35) @ 45 minutes after game 1

Portland Sea Dogs (Chris Hernandez 0-1, 1.72)
vs. New Britain Rock Cats (David Bromberg 0-0, 18.00) @ 6:35 p.m.

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.
