In his first season with the Red Sox, outfielder Jason Repko has unfortunately spent more time on the disabled list than he has on the field.
After healing from a minor knee injury suffered while playing for the PawSox in April, Repko was called up to Boston where, after playing in just a handful of games, he injured his left shoulder crashing into the outfield wall.
Repko was placed on Boston’s disabled list and while rehabbing his shoulder, tweaked his knee once again. Now, with a fully healed shoulder, Repko has already appeared in seven rehab games with Single-A Greenville in order to return his knee to full health. Tonight Repko bats second for the PawSox and plays right field.
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:
Innings: 44 innings
Time: 15 hours, 13 minutes
Home runs: 5
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.
