There were all kinds of fireworks at McCoy on Friday night. Home runs and ejections were the order of the night as the Yankees beat Pawtucket 8-5. Corban Joseph, Darnell McDonald, Ramiro Pena and Melky Mesa all left the yard as the Yankees scored 8 runs on just 8 hits. The PawSox counntered with a pair of ninth inning homers by J.C. Linares and Jon Hee.
The Mesa homer lead to a wild scene at McCoy. Originally ruled a foul ball by home plate ump Jeff Gosney, Yankees manager Dave Miley protested and the call was eventually overturned as the three man crew met near the mound. Manager Arnie Beyeler was ejected, followed by Pitching Coach Rich Sauveur. Sauveur flew out of the dugout and was in the face of Gosney. Contact was made with A.J. Johnson. There will have to be a review to determine who initiated the contact. As the inning ended, Pawtucket pitcher Jose de la Torre lunged at Gosney. de la Torre had to be restrained by first baseman Mauro Gomez.
Portland Sea Dogs right-hander Stolmy Pimentel threw a no-hitter for four innings.
The New Britain Rock Cats could not get Pimentel out of the game. Neither could the lightning that appeared around Hadlock Field.
But the rain finally ended the night for Pimentel and everyone else.
Friday's game was suspended because of rain after 3½ innings with the score 0-0.
The nine-inning game will resume at 5 p.m. Saturday, with the Sea Dogs coming to bat in the bottom of the fourth.
Saturday's regularly scheduled game will follow. It will be a seven-inning game.
Mike MacDonald will start the second game tonight for Portland. Manager Kevin Boles was still working on choosing his pitchers for the resumed game.
It isn't known whether Red Sox reliever Rich Hill, who was scheduled to make a rehab appearance Friday night, will pitch Saturday.
Hill could go back to Boston and pitch for Pawtucket in the annual "Futures at Fenway" minor league doubleheader at Fenway Park.
So the Sea Dogs might not have Hill today, and they definitely won't have Pimentel.
"It's a shame the weather stopped him," Boles said. "I liked his fastball (Friday night) and he had a real good slider going."
Pimentel struck out leadoff batter Aaron Hicks, one of the Minnesota Twins' top prospects, with that slider. He was also tossing in 96 mph fastballs.
It's that combination that keeps Boston hoping that Pimentel will reach his potential.
He retired the first nine batters. Hicks reached on an infield error to begin the fourth and Chris Herman drew the only walk from Pimentel, who got out of the jam with a fly out, groundout and strikeout.
Pimentel threw 51 pitches, 34 for strikes.
A LITTLE EXTRA:Salem pounded out 11 extra-base hits, including home runs by Michael Almanzar and Carson Blair, to defeat Potomac 12-6 on Friday in front of 3,007 at Salem Memorial Ballpark.
The win was Salem's second straight following a season-high seven-game losing streak.
"It feels great," Blair said. "We have a lot more energy in the clubhouse now."
BACK TO EARTH: Potomac took a 2-0 lead in the first inning and handed the ball to ace right-hander Alex Meyer, a first round pick of Washington in 2011. Meyer had allowed just three runs over 29 innings since his promotion to High Class A.
Salem doubled that in one frame.
The Sox batted around in the first, plating six runs against a guy touching 97 mph.
"We knew he had good stuff; we were just trying to make him get it up in the zone," said Blair, who capped the outburst with a no-doubt shot to left. "He had some trouble with location, got us ahead in some counts, and we got some better pitches to hit."
RELISHING THE CHANCE: Blair backed up Christian Vazquez for most of the year until Vazquez was promoted to Double-A on Aug. 3. Now an everyday player, Blair extended his hitting streak to six games with a 2-for-3, three-RBI performance.
"Those of us who've been behind some guys are taking advantage of it right now," Blair said. "We're just trying to enjoy it, honestly. We've had to watch so many games. Now that we're out there, it's fun."
OFFENSIVE SHOW: Drew Hedman had another big night for the Sox, going 3 for 4 with two triples, a double, a walk and three RBIs.
Heiker Meneses, Zach Gentile and Shannon Wilkerson also had multihit games for Salem, which stranded only six runners.
Lowell Spinners manager Bruce Crabbe didn't have to think long before he could offer up the main reason for his ballclub's recent rise up the standings.
"Pitching. Absolutely," said Crabbe. "Our pitching has kept us in every ballgame, for the most part. It's been outstanding, it really has."
Such was the case again on Friday night at LeLacheur Park as Lowell defeated Baltimore Orioles' Class A affiliate, the Aberdeen IronBirds, 6-2, in a rain-shortened game that was called in the top of the eighth inning.
Righties Madison Younginer (3.2ip, 4h, 2er, 1bb) and William Cuevas (3.2ip, 3h, 5 k, 0bb) combined for the victory. Cuevas got the win, improving to 6-2 and lowered his ERA to 1.51.
The Spinners (28-29) have won seven out of their last eight (28-29) and remained a player in the New York-Penn League wild card standings. They entered Friday night seven games back.
"Winning breeds confidence," Crabbe said. "The little things that we didn't do in the beginning, we're starting to see we can do them. Hopefully it continues. That's what player development is all about."
Lowell's offense did its part as well, busting a 2-2 game open with four runs in the bottom of the fifth. The Spinners pieced together six hits in the frame, highlighted by a leadoff double off the bat of first baseman Jake Davies to get the inning started.
Shortstop Mike Miller and Boston Red Sox 2012 first-round pick Deven Marrero had RBI singles in the fifth.
"The offense has come around. We've been picking it up," said Crabbe. "I try to get everybody in the lineup. There's not one guy that I think needs to play more than anyone else. That's so everyone feels like they are part of the team. But the same guys do the same things every night. Miller, Marrero, those are the guys that set the table."
Miller, Marrero and Davies each had two hits. Right fielder Dreily Guerrero added an RBI double in the first for Lowell, which had 10 hits as a team.
