PAWTUCKET â€“ Daniel Bard got his wish Monday night. Unfortunately for the pitcher, the switch to the bullpen did little inspire confidence that heâ€™s ready to turn the corner.
Working one inning, Bard allowed one run on one hit with a walk and two strikeouts as the PawSox saw a ninth-inning rally come up just short in an 11-8 loss to the Gwinnett Braves. Bard ended up tossing 22 pitches, 11 for strikes.
Through all the video and bullpen sessions along with everything else geared toward the task of Reconstruction: The Daniel Bard Story, thereâ€™s one loose end left.
What exactly is Bardâ€™s mound assignment moving forward â€“ starter or reliever? Judging by the early returns in his minor-league stint with the PawSox, such a pretty important clarification appears to have been left off the struggling pitcherâ€™s itinerary, the one that the Red Sox brain trust undoubtedly compiled and left atop Bardâ€™s equipment bag as he packed up his Fenway Park locker.
PROVIDENCE â€“ And just like that, there will be a new champion in Division II this year.
Tolman Highâ€™s run at the top came to a sudden and abrupt end Monday night, the semifinal loss sustained against an undefeated Pilgrim High outfit that pulled away in the third and final game en route to posting a sweep at the Providence Career & Technical Academy field house.
