Game Times and Pitchers 5/3/12

3 May

We have an early morning game for those of you who need an immediate baseball fix after your second cup of coffee. Casey Lawrence gets his second start for the Fisher Cats as they look to split their four-game series with the first place RPhils. For the second time this series New Hampshire will be up against one of the Phillies top pitching talents, this time Jonathan Pettibone, a 6’5” righty who ranks as the No. 4 prospect in Philadelphia’s system.

Stolmy Pimentel will get his second start of the season after striking out 7 over five innings in a no decision last time out. In 16 AA starts (15 from last season), he has yet to register a win.

The PawSox put Tony Pena Jr. on the hill after a big shuffle of the deck these past few days that has seen Aaron Cook, Will Middlebrooks and Jose Iglesias all head north to the big club. The PawSox are 1-5 on their current road trip and still have four more games to play before returning to McCoy next Monday.

Steve Hirschfeld gets his sixth start of the year for the Rock Cats. In his first three starts he went 2-0 and allowed only 2 runs over 17 innings. However, in his last two he has picked up losses and has allowed 8 runs and 18 hits in 11 2/3 innings.
