Wilmington:

Bowden gets three groundouts to start the game.

Rocks respond by plating a run in the bottom of the 1st - Corsaletti BB, Lowrie 1B, Otness SF

Bowden strikes out two and walks one (later caught stealing) in the 2nd

Singles by Wagner and Suarez are wasted in the bottom of the 2nd

Bowden strikes out two and allows a fly ball (1st ball hit out of the infield) in the 3rd

Rocks go down in order in the bottom of the 3rd

Bowden gives up a run in the 4th

Rocks go down in order in the bottom of the 4th (Johnson singled but was thrown out trying to stretch it into a double)

Tied 1-1, mid 5th

Bowden 5IP, 1H, 1ER, 5/3 K/BB

Portland falls behind Trenton 2-0 in the bottom of the second but George I need to learn how to spell Kottaras makes an immediate impact with a 2-run homer to right in the top of the third (Jacoby Ellsbury on first after a HBP) to tie it.

Wow - Bowden and Masterson combne on a 1-hitter - and lose! Bad for the team but good for the future as both guys show for the first time that they can pitch in high A.

Off topic, I know, but how do you pronounce George Kottaras' name? Until furter notice, my roommates and I will go on calling him George Costanza.

This is a bit off topic but the Thunder have a lot of guys 26 and older on their roster, 14 by my count from minorleaguebaseball.com (not including Shemp). The Sea Dogs have only have 7 guys that old or older. Why are they doing this? Is it roster filler? Do some teams do this for instructional reasons? Wouldn't they rather fill the roster with younger guys in AA?

You can sign younger ml FA but then the team isn't as competitive and most ml FA aren't prospects so signing the older guys doesn't hurt you too much. This is more likely a reflective of the fact that the Yankees don't have a bunch of Jeremy West Brandon Moss type roster filler.
