Had a couple of great photo days in the past week, leaving me way behind on editing… but I need to put up a couple from yesterday, when I made the trek to Pawtucket with redsoxchick. Last time I’d gone to McCoy I’d given Jed Lowrie a promotion to AAA in my own mind, if nowhere else… about six days later the Sox saw fit to make it reality, and for the first time since Spring Training I could see one of my favorite prospects! How did he do? Well… let’s look at a few shots from August 5!
Clay Buchholz smiles in the pen…
… and snarks a little (nicely) at the catcher.
One of the dancers in the Dominican celebration.
Knuckleballer Charlie Zink.
Jacoby Ellsbury trots the bases, beaming. Why is he beaming?…
… because he was on first base when Jed Lowrie clocked a home run, that’s why!
That was worth the wait!
Jed was a little less successful next time up.
I’m not sure Ellsbury’s allowed to be so athletic, talented and handsome…
… though young Jed is no slouch there either. (Gotta be the sunglasses.)
Hey, look! Jacoby’s loping and smiling again! Could it be…
… that Jed has clocked another 2-run blast?
I think it could!
Great game for the PawSox, who won 6-4. Zink was terrific, and in addition to Lowrie’s power Ellsbury went 3-3 with a stolen base (photos of Jacoby in flight to come!). All in all a very satisfying Sunday afternoon at the park!
