Last night Gerrit Cole hit 100 mph numerous times on the Hadlock Field radar gun.  Since I’ve been calling games with Portland (2005), I’ve seen Daniel Bard hit a 100 and Erie’s Bruce Rondon (last homestand)…Cole was consistently in the upper 90’s with his fastball, hitting 98 on a majority of his nine strikeouts.
The righty retired the first 14 batters until Xander Bogaerts nailed a double to right field.  Here’s what Cole had to say about Bogaerts – “It was 80 mph and I tried to get it in there for a strike, but I ran the risk of letting him get the bat head out on it. A lot of people would roll over it, but he did a good job of going the other way.”

New Britain: Latimore 8, Cabrera 2, Santos 9, Curry 3, Tejeda 6, Marrero 7, Cunningham 4, Cutler DH, Welch 5, LHP Luke French (2-0, 1.80)

Portland: Bradley Jr. 8, Smith 5, Hazelbaker DH, Brentz 9, Shaw 3, Bogaerts 6, Hissey 7, Vazquez 2, Gibson 4, RHP Stolmy Pimentel (4-6, 5.38)
