7/19 Cup of Coffee


I have a real strong cup of back coffee in front of me today. Thank goodness for the minor leagues which can take our attention away from the rather dismal performance of the parent team in the last couple of weeks. In AAA, Pawtucket got by Louisville by the score of 9-4. Abe Alvarez recorded the win going 5 innings while giving up 4 runs on 7 hits with 4 Ks. Offensively Kelly Shoppach led the way going 3 for 4 with 2 homers and 5 RBIs. Reading had a convincing 7-1 win over Portland in AA ball. David Pauley took the loss going 6 innings. He allowed 5 runs on 9 hits. At the plate an anemic offense was led by Raul Nieves who was 2 for 4 with 1 RBI. At Advanced A ball, Wilmington got by Myrtle Beach by the score of 9-5. Jose Vaquedano got the victory going 5 innings, giving up 4 runs on 4 hits. Scott White led the attack going 3 for 3 while scoring a run and driving in a run. In A ball, Hickory edged Greenville 2-1. Jarrett Gardner was the losing pitcher lasting 6 innings. He gave up 2 runs on 5 hits while fanning 3. Jeff Corsaletti continued his hot streak at the plate going 3 for 5 with a home run. Short Season Lowell was trounced 8-0 by Mahoning Valley. Mario Pena was the losing pitcher. He went 5 innings and gave up 5 runs on 7 hits. The Spinners had only 4 hits as a team in the game. Zak Farkes, who went 1 for 3, was one of four players with a single hit. In the Gulf Coast League, the Twins shut out the Red Sox 3-0. Brett Rudrude took the loss going 2 2/3 innings giving up 2 runs on 3 hits. The Red Sox were held to just 2 hits, a single by Moises Santa and a double by Manny Arambarris.
Player of the Night: Kelly Shoppach, who went 3 for 4 with 2 homers and 5 RBIs.
