Wrapping up the series…All-Star picks
Congrats to Outfielder Bryce Brentz, Pitcher Chris Hernandez and Infielder Reynaldo Rodriguez for being selected to the
Eastern League All-Star game in Reading, Pa…Brentz is the first player in franchise history with two 5-hit games…Hernandez is sixth in the league with a 2.87 ERA and Rodriguez leads the team in homers with 12.
Jackie Bradley Jr. told me before the game he was about six inches from robbing Brad Glenn’s homer last night…My pre-game guest for the next two days in Anthony Ranaudo.
SEEKING SPLIT IN HOMESTAND’S FIRST HALF: The Sea Dogs and New Hampshire Fisher Cats (Blue Jays affiliate) wrap up their four-game series on Friday night at Hadlock Field…Portland picked up the win Thursday and look to salvage a split with a win in the finale…Tuesday night, the two teams duked it out for 13-innings and 4-plus hours…The longest game in both respects since 2009 for the Sea Dogs.
