Upper Minors: PawSox Stop Herd on SNY

AAA: Pawtucket Red Sox 5, @ Buffalo Bisons 1 

Collin McHugh was ok with ominous peripherals: 5.2 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 4 BB, 6 K. In 62 innings in AAA, he’s struck out 63 batters and walked 27. That’s a 10% walk rate. Major League average is 8.1%.

Pedro Beato gave up two homers in an ugly four-run seventh inning.

The Bisons had four hits, all singles. DH Zach Lutz (.303/.413/.508 – 55 games) had one, and earned a walk.

LF Lucas Duda was 0-for-4 with three strikeouts.

CF Matt den Dekker (.204/.238/.394 – 57 games) was 0-for-3 with two whiffs. That’s now 70 strikeouts in 57 games. The strikeouts have eaten his batting average.

I could not watch this game, so what did I miss for those of you who were tuned into SNY?
