The major league club was not the only team in the organization that sent players to an All Star Game this week. Both the Pawtucket Red Sox and the Portland Sea Dogs sent players to their respective All-Star games.
The Pawsox sent DH Chris Carter, left fielder Jeff Bailey, second baseman Joe Thurston, and left fielder Jonathan Van Every as a reserve. Despite 3 hits from Thurston and a 2-run homer from Carter, the International League lost to the Pacific Coast League.
The Sea Dogs sent right fielder Zachary Daeges, left fielder Jeff Corsaletti, and pitcher Beau Vaughan. With a hit from Corsaletti and a clean inning from Vaughan, the Eastern League North All-Stars won a close game.
27 year old Vaughan has had a stellar season as the Sea Dogs’ closer. In 40.1 innings, 33 appearances he has a 1-1 record, an ERA of 2.45, WHIP of 1.22, 13 saves, 48 strikeout, and has only surrendered 1 home run. Look for “Beau” to be making a contribution at the major league level in the future.
You can see the Pawtucket Red Sox at the upcoming Futures at Fenway!
