AAA – Beresford, Kennelly, Moylan, Rowland-Smith, Russell
We commented on James Beresford’s chances of a September call up earlier after he went 3-5 for Rochester. Just to add to our argument James followed that with a 2-3 game and 2RBI today against Indianapolis in yet another loss to the Red Wings, going down 8-5. Whilst James is now hitting .314 in his last 10 he has been consistently around the .300 mark all year in both AA and AAA.
Matt Kennelly is off the DL and went 0-3 in his 1st game in 11 days
Peter Moylan threw an inning on Friday allowing 1 run on 2 hits whilst striking out 2 which gives him 43Ks in 43 innings pitched for the season at AAA.
Once again Ryan Rowland-Smith was brought on to throw to one hitter – this time in the 8th inning with 2 out for Pawtucket. As he has done 6 times in his last 10 appearances he finished the inning and was relieved. It was his 7th Hold. He has an impressive 1.57ERA for the season.
Andrew Russell rebounded from his loss on Thursday with a 0.2 scoreless inning on Saturday. He has a 4.55ERA for the season at AAA.
