Game Notes

  • Here’s a tweet from PawSox broadcaster Aaron Goldsmith…@aaronmgoldsmith “A black SUV just drove on the warning track inside Frontier Field in Rochester and stopped behind home plate. Out walked Andy Pettitte.”
  • No home cooking for the Red Sox, and no pun intended.  Aaron Cook has landed on the DL and Andrew Miller is active.
  • Great to see Maine native Ryan Flaherty leading off today for Baltimore.
