Part Two of the roadtrip…’Dogs in Erie

The Sea Dogs open up a three-game series on Friday night against the Erie SeaWolves (Tigers affiliate) from Jerry Uht Park in downtown Erie, Pa.  Portland swept the ‘Wolves last week at Hadlock Field.  Last night, the ‘Dogs completed their first season-series victory against the Akron Aeros since 1998.

There was a lot of buzz in the air last night at Canal Park, and most of the people in the stands probably had no idea what was going on.  19-year old Xander Bogaerts made his Double-A debut for Portland.  In his third at-bat, he launched a 2-1 pitch over the batter’s eye in right-center field.  Bogaerts finished 2-for-5 and handled every ball that was hit to him at shortstop.

“I didn’t expect to hit a home run,” Bogaerts told milb.com. “I was just looking to make contact. I got to a 2-0 count and he threw me a fastball that I pulled down the third-base line pretty hard. The next pitch he shook his head ‘no’ and I knew I was going to get a fastball.

Portland: Bradley Jr. 8, Hissey 7, Smith 5, Brentz 9, Shaw 3, Bogaerts 6, Gibson DH, Vazquez 2, Dent 4, RHP Stolmy Pimentel (4-5, 4.99)

Ohio Native returns home, so does a former Aero

Jeff Shaw (Travis Shaw’s dad) pitched in the Eastern League with Canton in 1988…Travis was born the year his dad made his Major League debut.
