Anderson, Reddick star for Pawtucket

5/8 Cup of Coffee: Lars Anderson had his best game in Triple-A Friday night, while Salem won their seventh straight to improve on the minor league's best record.

In Boof Bonser's return to action, the PawSox bats came alive to the tune of 12 runs and 13 hits in a 12-4 win over Charlotte (CWS). Bonser went 3.0 innings, striking out 3 and allowing just 1 run, but the real story was Pawtucket's offense. Daniel Nava and Dusty Brown homered and Lars Anderson hit a two-run double in a six-run sixth inning, and Josh Reddick hit a three-run home run in the eighth. Fabio Castro allowed 3 runs in 3.1 innings, and Scott Atchison tossed 1.2 perfect innings for Pawtucket. Anderson and Brown were both 2 for 4 with 3 RBI, and Reddick finished with 4 RBI in the win.

Ryan Kalish hit a bases-loaded triple in the top of the ninth to give Portland a 4-2 come-from-behind win over New Britain (MIN). Kalish took Felix Doubront, who struck out 9 in 4.2 innings, off the hook for the loss. Doubront allowed 2 runs on 6 hits and walked 2. Eammon Portice tossed 2.1 scoreless innings, striking out 4 without allowing a baserunner. Chi-Hsien Chiang was 2 for 4 with an RBI and Yamiaco Navarro went 2 for 3 with a double and a run scored in the win.

Salem continued their scorching start to the season, beating Winston-Salem (CWS) 7-4 for their seventh straight win. After the Dash jumped out to a 1-0 lead, Tim Federowicz and Anthony Rizzo had an RBI double each in the third to put Salem up 3-1 in the third. Mitch Dening had an RBI double in the fourth, but Winston Salem tied it up in the fifth. Fabian Williamson started and allowed 4 runs on 6 hits in 4.2 innings. Salem went ahead 7-4 in the sixth on a slew of singles, and Will Latimer and Blake Maxwell combined for 4.1 innings of scoreless relief. Dening was 3 for 4 with a double and an RBI, and Alex Hassan and Jon Hee each had two hits for the Sox, who improved to a minor-league best 21-7 on the year.

Roman Mendez gave up a grand slam in the second inning and the Drive never recovered, falling 10-6 to Hickory (TEX). Mendez left after the second having allowed 5 runs on 4 hits, and Pedro Perez didn't fare much better, allowing 4 runs, 3 earned in 4.0 innings. Greenville mounted a comeback attempt in the top of the eighth, scoring 5 runs on a couple of Hickory errors, but it was too late. Dan Butler was the only Drive player with more than one hit, and Reymond Fuentes was 1 for 5 with a triple and 2 runs scored in the loss.

Player of the Night: Lars Anderson, who was 2 for 4 with a double and 3 RBI in Pawtucket's big win over Charlotte.
