Bowden pitches Paw Sox past Lehigh Valley


4/21 Cup of Coffee:

Michael Bowden (1-0) turned in his third impressive start of 2009, helping Pawtucket defeat Lehigh Valley 2-0 to earn a split of the four-game series. The big righthander pitched 5.1 innings scoreless, yielding only 3 hits and 1 walk whine fanning 7 Iron Pigs. Fernando Cabrera continued his fine work out of the Pawtucket bullpen, firing 2.2 hitless innings with 1 strikeout. Daniel Bard slammed the door on Lehigh Valley with a hitless ninth, striking out 2 to earn his third save. All the offense for Pawtucket was provided by Paul McAnulty's first-inning two-run home run. Jeff Bailey and Dusty Brown each went 1 for 3.

Both Portland and Salem were rained out on Monday.

Not to be outdone by their Triple-A counterparts, Stolmy Pimentel (1-1) and the Greenville Drive also turned in a pitching gem, downing Greensboro 2-0. Pimentel went the first 5.0 innings, giving up 5 hits while striking out 5. Lance McClain then pitched 3.0 hitless frames, fanning 4, before Felix Ventura finished the game with a scorless ninth to record his first save. Oscar Tejeda continued his recent hot streak, going 3 for 4 with a double, a triple, and a run scored. Mitch Dening went 2 for 4 with an RBI, while Tim Federowicz drove in the other Greenville run, going 1 for 4. Zach Gentile also has a multiple-hit game, going 2 for 3 with a double.

Player of the Night: Michael Bowden, who struck out 7 over 5.1 scoreless innings to earn his first win of 2009.
