Lowell evens series at 1 game each with 3-2 win


9/10 Cup of Coffee: Salem defeated Winston-Salem, 7-2, in the opening game of their best-of-5 series. Daisuke Matsuzaka pitched 6.2 strong innings allowing 1 run on 3 hits. He struck out 7. Brad Correll set the tone early, hitting a 2-run homer in the top of the first, and the Sox never looked back. He ended up going 2 for 4 in the game. Jonathan Hee went 3 for 3 with 2 runs scored and a RBI. Game 2 is tonight, with Kyle Weiland getting the start.

Lowell downed Staten Island, 3-2, in 11 innings. The Spinners jumped off to an early 2-0 lead, scoring twice in the top of the first. Alex Wilson started and was dominant in his 3 innings of work. He held the Yankees scoreless allowing 3 hits, while recording 7 strikeouts. Ryan Pressly took over and held Staten Island scoreless for the next 3 innings before walking the first 2 hitters he faced in the 7th. The Yankees were able to plate single runs in the seventh and eighth off of Cesar Cabral and Chez Angeloni, respectively, to tie the score. Angeloni allowed a pair of singles in the 9th before giving way to Jordan Flasher. With runners on first and third, he gave up an intentional walk to load the bases, then proceeded to strikeout the side to send the game to extra innings. In the top of the 11th, Dan Butler led off with a home run to provide what would be the winning run. Doug Wogee earned the win throwing 2 scoreless innings. Chris McGuinness went 2 for 4 with a RBI. Yeiper Castillo will toe the rubber in tonight's winner-take-all Game 3.

The first game of the Greenville-Asheville series was postponed last night due to rain. However, with Thursday originally scheduled to be an off day for travel, the teams will play tonight instead. Stolmy Pimentel will get the ball for the Drive.

Player of the Night: Jordan Flasher, who with the bases loaded and no outs, struck out the side to save the Spinners' season.
