In-Game Updates (LIVE from the ballpark): 1-2-3 first for Mac. 13 pitches/8 strikes.
Nick Gorneault — he of the .204 batting average — just took McAllister deep to the tune of three-run shot to deep left in the second. James Cooper gave it the courtesy jog, but it was a no doubter. 3-0, NH, T2.
30 pitches in the second for McAllister, who doesn’t look anywhere near as good as he did his last time out…3-0, heading into B2.
Scott Campbell singles home a run on a close play at the plate…Todd Donovan appeared to barely elude the tag of P.J. Pilittere, giving the Cats a 4-0 lead, T3.
70 pitches/38 strikes through three innings for Mac. He’s lauded for his pitch efficiency, but that isn’t the case tonight. 4-0, heading into B3.
Aaaaaaaaand that will be it for Mr. McAllister. Wow. Eric Wordekemper in to start the fourth. 3 BB, 1 K for Mac tonight.
Marcos Vechionacci laces a bases loaded single to left with one out…it’s now 5-2 here, B6.
Humberto Sanchez in to pitch the 7th…
Brad Emaus, with the bases loaded and one out and the infield in, hit a sort of soft grounder to shortstop Eduardo Nunez. Nunez rushed the throw home, which Pilittere had no shot of getting, and it rolled away…allowing two runs to score. Nunez…I don’t like his throwing mechanics. Seems like he gets too underneath the ball. 7-2, NH, T7.
