No Rest for Red Sox Farmhands

After hours of rain postponed game one of the current series from Coca-Cola Park in Allentown, Pa., the PawSox and ‘Pigs split yesterday’s double-header, with each team winning a one-run affair.

In total, the two teams combined for 22 runs on 45 hits over two games, spanning 14 innings (5 hours, 8 minutes). It could have been worse, the High-A Salem Red Sox dropped both games of their twin-bill last night against Myrtle Beach (Rangers) and played a total of 16 innings (5 hours, 29 minutes).

Even Double-A Portland played a pair yesterday, winning the first and dropping the second against Altoona (Pirates). After a long Saturday at the ballpark, the top-three levels of the Red Sox farm system combined for the following totals:

 

Games: 6

Innings: 44 innings

Time: 15 hours, 13 minutes

Won-Lost: 2-4

Home runs: 5

Doubles: 15

Hits: 60

Runs: 24

Of course, the odd-man left out is the Single-A Greenville Drive who got to bed early after topping Charleston 10-4 in a brisk 2 hours, 25 minutes (9 innings).

Hopefully it will be a shorter day at the yard for the PawSox, Sea Dogs and Red Sox. The PawSox and IronPigs wrestle this afternoon at 1:35 with Doug Mathis (3-3, 4.86 ERA) getting the start.

Talk with you then.
