PawSox Send Four to Triple-A All-Star Game

The PawSox join the Charlotte Knights (White Sox) as the only two teams in the International League to send four players this this year’s Triple-A All-Star game held on July 11 in Buffalo.

Of the four Pawtucket All-Stars, three played for a different parent club last season (Gomez, Braves; Ciriaco, Pirates; Germano, Indians/Korea).

Ryan Lavarnway: The PawSox catcher is hitting over .400 this month and is showing why he might very well be the best catcher in the league. Currently riding an eight-game hitting streak, the Yale product is catching everyday for the first time in his pro career.

Mauro Gomez: A mid-season All-Star year season with Gwinnett, Gomez has been the pop in the PawSox lineup since Opening Day. He ranks among the league-leaders in virtually every offensive category and has been an extra-base machine with 41 of his 76 hits going for extras.

Pedro Ciriaco: As manager Arnie Beyeler once said, Ciriaco is the guy who gets the PawSox offense going. Coming off a career-best 16-game hit streak, not only has he been a consistent hitter, he was able to slide over to shortstop when Jose Iglesias landed on the DL (back).

Justin Germano: The PawSox ace, Germano ranks 5th in the league with a 2.60 ERA and is third in the I.L. with a 0.94 WHIP. This month he’s 2-1 with a 2.08 ERA.

The fifth member of the PawSox making the trip to Buffalo is Arnie Beyler. The second-year skipper will also be coaching for the World Team at this year’s XM All-Stars Futures Game in Kansas City on July 8.

Very cool!!!

Obviously your team is loaded with talent and that’s a good thing for the PawSox and the RedSox. I know that Baseball pays the freight at your establishment but when are we going to see some more of those restaurant reviews on Dives and Diners that athletes and fans frequent and an occasional recipe would be nice. Some of us love baseball AND the BSO…symphony……and good eating.
