2 run double by Rodriguez puts Dores up early 2-0.

Looks like Rocker is starting. Somewhere I saw that Reilly was starting.

Stories with the Rocker’s

Apparently, there are no stories with correct punctuation.

Started pretty well at that, 13 pitches. 3 Ks. Nice all around start.

First inning we hit the ball hard - and almost ran ourselves out of the inning. Arky outfielder lost Bulger’s fly - and Rodriguez followed with a two out rope. Bradfield, Thomas, Keegan and Rodriguez hit the ball sharply. Four hits and only two runs to show for it.

Rocker struck out the side. Good start.

By the way, saw Stephen Scott playing for the Salem Red Sox this evening.

Left early to watch the current Dores...

Rocker gets a quick 1-2 count on first batter and nibbles with offspeed stuff to walk the lead off man. Sharp single follows.

Lot of hitters in Arky’s lineup. Walks hurt.

On paper this is a pitcher’s duel.

It is looking early like it could be a 7-6 affair.

Brown needs to come out, calm Rocker down and tell him to throw strikes.

Rocker is missing high with the slider.

Falls behind #9 hitter 2-0. Walks him.

30 pitches in the inning. Bases loaded two outs. One run.

FINALLY Brown comes out. This is two batters too late.

Didn't work. Rocker looks shaken or something.

And screws around with a two-strike waste pitch and HBP brings in another run.

Really disappointing pitch selection. STOP screwing around with the pitch that isn’t there tonight...

I mean, try it later - but with bases full, use what is working.

That inning may mean we are in the bullpen by the sixth inning. 52 pitches through 2.

Wow. What a letdown after the first inning. Rocker out of it mentally. Lucky to be tied.

After all that I feel good that only 2 runs scored, felt like a whole lot more.

Then we give them a short inning and Rocker is right back out there. Dang.

Now the fast ball is sailing high. 4 pitch walk.
