A different type of format today (Day 3 coverage)
Due to rain this morning, the Sea Dogs played a different kind of game today on fields 3 & 4 at JetBlue Park. The host team was Tampa Bay’s Double-A affiliate, the Montgomery Biscuits. On both fields, just the pitcher, catcher and batter were on the field. The grounds crew didn’t want anyone on the infield, and there’s no bases put down. Portland’s hitters were on field 3 and the pitchers on field 4.
Notes from today
- Andrew Miller pitched an inning for Portland and was scoreless
- Aaron Kurcz, recovering from Tommy John surgery, looked sharp…(VIDEO) of Kurcz throwing.
- Michael Olmsted pitched a scoreless inning…he was released by the Brewers earlier in Spring Training and signed by Boston.
- Hitters on field 4: Sean Coyle, Ryan Dent, Keury De La Cruz, Peter Hissey and Shannon Wilkerson.
Pawtucket played Durham on the Major League field today, due to the wet grounds on the minor league fields. Durham won 4-0, but Anthony Ranaudo was sharp over 5.2 IP on one run.
