Thursday June 16th pawsox VS indians
so this entry will contain my two trips to the Pawsox since Thursday, and my two Cape league games i went to on Sunday.
Thursday was the first game since the triple A allstar game, and it was hat night here it is
for this game i got to the stadium when hte gates are suppose to open but when i got there the gates where open 5 min early so i misse out on like 5-10 min of BP. but by the time BP ended i still did not get a ball. so i had to hang out by the Dug out for a 3rd out ball. the strategy worked. i got a Gem(no pic sorry). that was it for the game. pawsox lose to indians 9-5.
THe starting pitcher for the indians was Ian Snell who pitched for the Pittsburg Pirates this season. he looked real good. here are some pics
that was it for the game one ball, and a second row seat with a general admission ticket.
Saturday July 18th Pawsox VS Indians. International league HOF night.
I arrived at what they say is before thegates open but when i arrived htere were over 200 people in the stadium. Also it was girl scout sleep over day, so i was not expecting alot of balls today. so lets get to it. my first ball came from Denny Bautista, a toss uptoss up .
second ball was another toss up from Milver Reyes.
My next ball was a toss up from i dont know who.
the next ball i got was my first ever caught home run ball. some people said ”nice catch”. thank you.
the next ball was from Ty Taubenheim where he just wound up and fired to the back of hte berm to no one.
the last and final ball was and easter egg that i found at the end of BP.
WOW a new record for balls for me 6 here they are (only 5 shown 1 given away to kid who was trying)
Pawsox eventually lose. they have lost 8 straight.
CAPE COD TRIP WILL BE UP TOMORROW. WITH PICS, FORGOT CAMERA AT MY DADS:(
This is the last game before the all star game, and i wanted to go to because Clay Buchholz was pitching(my first choice as the international league starting pitcher, but he pitched on sunday). I was hoping for BP but no go. alright. So i was hoping for a Pawsox win to snap there 4 game losing streak. Lets find out.
First pitch of game
In the the game Clay gave up 5 runs in 5.1 innings but only 4 of them were earned on 8 hits. Not so great start for buch.
Here are some action shots of Buchholz.
Jed Lowrie was in the starting line up again. he made several nice plays at shortstop.
Here are several shots of Lowrie at short, and batting.
So now its the Bottom of the 9th, and Freddy Guzman is up, and blasts a 2 run homer. Did the momentum continue with the rest of the other guys… nope next batter was the end of the game.
On on other note former major leaguer Corey Patterson was DHing for the Syracuse Sky chiefs (http://syracuse.chiefs.milb.com/index.jsp?sid=t552).
Oh i forgot it was Pawsox go green bag day so here it is
