JetBlue Park was busy today
One of the biggest stories the past two days was the moving truck department from JetBlue Park. I happened to see it leave as the minor league games finished up.
Speaking of the games, the Sea Dogs had a tough day, falling to New Britain 8-1 at JetBlue Park. Portland’s lone run was courtesy of a Henry Ramos – delivering an RBI single in the seventh, scoring Blake Swihart (1-for-4). Sean Coyle and Stefan Welch each doubled. Mickey Pena, Miguel Celestino, Noe Ramirez and Nate Reed all pitched for Portland. Reed was signed as a minor league free-agent this off-season after spending last year with Lancaster of the Atlantic League.
Interesting on the New Britain side, as they featured three former Sea Dogs. Tony Thomas went 1-for-3, playing third base. Reynaldo Rodriguez added an RBI double and Daniel Turpen pitched an inning. Daniel Ortiz had three hits and 2 RBI for the Rock Cats, but prospect Kennys Vargas launched a two-run homer to centerfield. Vargas hit 19 homer for High-A Ft. Myers in 2013.
Triple-A Game: Rochester 4, PawSox 2. Carlos Rivero (Sac fly in 1st) and Brock Holt (groundout in 7th) with the RBI. Chris Hernandez takes the loss. Courtesy of the @pawsox…Shane Victorino went 3-for-6 and Craig Breslow pitched a scoreless frame.
What a cool day for me personally. Two friends from my hometown of Ashland, Massachusetts own a restaurant in Ft. Myers. I spent the morning having breakfast and catching up on old times. This trip has been amazing, I’m very lucky the Sea Dogs send me down here every year – never gets old.
