Daniel Bard Pitching Better for Triple-A Pawtucket

Daniel Bard and Rich Sauveur (Rick Medeiros)

Daniel Bard made only two appearances this week for the Pawtucket Red Sox, each of them successful. Let’s get straight to the results:

July 22nd

Bard entered the game in the eighth with Pawtucket losing 3-2. Corky Miller grounded out to lead off the inning, but Willie Harris and Chris Valaika singled and a sacrifice bunt put runners on second and third with two outs. On a 2-2 count, Daniel got Cody Puckett to pop out to catcher Ryan Lavarnway to escape the jam.

July 23rd

Bard once again came on for the eighth, this time with a 5-1 lead. He fell behind Brad Peacock 3-1, but recovered to induce a grounder to first. Didi Gregorius lined out on the second pitch of his at bat, and Willie Harris struck out swinging to end the inning. Bard threw only 11 pitches, eight for strikes.

His ERA now sits at 7.08 through 20.1 innings at Triple-A.
