9/11 Cup of Coffee: With the score tied 4-4 in the 11th inning, Jon Hee singled to drive in Zach Borowiak and Che-Hsuan Lin to give Salem a 6-4 win and a 2-0 lead in their best-of-five series with Winston-Salem. Kyle Weiland started and went 7 innings. He allowed 3 runs, 2 of them earned, on 7 hits and a walk. Kyle Fernandes got the final 4 outs of the game without allowing a baserunner and earned the win. Brad Correll, Chih-Hsien Chiang, and Lin each had home runs. Anthony Rizzo, Borowiak and Chiang each had 3 hits. After winning two games on the road, Salem will go for the three-game sweep at home tonight, sending Seth Garrison to the mound.

Greenville scored twice in the top of the 9th to earn a come-from-behind, 3-2 win over Asheville, taking a 1-0 lead in their series. Ryan Lavarnway homered to lead off the 9th and tie the score, and Will Middlebrooks followed with another home run to provide the margin of victory. The Tourists loaded the bases with 2 out in the bottom of the inning, but Kyle Rutter got the final out on a line drive to second baseman Zach Gentile. Lavarnway and Middlebrooks each had 2 hits in the game. Stolmy Pimentel went 6 innings, allowing 2 runs, 1 of which was earned. Mitch Herold earned the win, pitching 2 scoreless, 1-hit innings. Fabian Williamson will get the ball for the Drive in game two this evening.

The Lowell-Staten Island game was postponed. The teams will play the third and final game of their series on Saturday, opting not to play on Friday in observance of 9/11.

Player of the Night: Chih-Hsien Chiang, who went 3 for 5 with a home run.
