Matt Gedman Promoted To Short Season A Lowell

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Congratulations to our own Matt Gedman, who was promoted from the Gulf Coast League Red Sox at the end of last week to the Short Season A Lowell Spinners of the New York Penn League. In 31 games in the Gulf Coast League, he hit .282 with five doubles, a triple, two home runs, 15 RBI and 14 runs scored.

Gedman, who is now playing for his father, former Red Sox catcher Rich Gedman who is the Spinners' batting coach, has played in three games since joining the team. He logged his first hit last night against the State College Spikes.

Another former Minuteman, Matt's brother Mike, was in action with his team, the Worcester Tornadoes last night, as well. Mike threw a perfect inning of relief, but the Tornadoes came up short against the Rockland Boulders, 8-2.

The New England Collegiate baseball league opened last night with current UMass catcher Tom Conley helping the Keene Swamp Bats to a 7-0 win in a rain-shortened contest against the Vermont Mountaineers. Conley hit fifth in the order and was 1-for-3 with a walk and an RBI.

On the day his younger brother was drafted, former Minuteman hurler Mike Gedman unfortunately took the loss for the Worcester Tornadoes after walking the leadoff hitter on a 3-2 pitch in the eighth inning vs. Chad Paronto's Pittsfield Colonials. The Colonials rallied for a 6-4 win.

Finally, Matt Torra will be on the bump tonight as the Reno Aces open a four-game series against the Colorado Springs Sky Sox. Torra will put his 4-0 record on the line against Sky Sox RHP Esmil Rogers (0-0, No ERA), who is on a Major League rehab assignment.
