Brown walk-off homer leads PawSox

5/28 Cup of Coffee: Stolmy Pimentel threw 6.0 shutout innings for the second time in three starts, and Dusty Brown went yard with two outs in the ninth to open Pawtucket's homestand with a walk-off win.

Trailing 4-2 in the bottom of the ninth, Dusty Brown hit a three-run, walk-off home run to push Pawtucket over Norfolk (BAL), 5-4. Brown already hit an RBI double in the bottom of the seventh, chipping away at the four-run lead Norfolk got off Scott Atchison, who did not record an out in the seventh. Boof Bonser had his best start of the season, throwing 6.0 innings of 4-hit, shutout ball, striking out 5 and walking just 2. Dustin Richardson allowed 1 hit in 2.0 shutout innings, and T.J. Large tossed a perfect ninth. Angel Sanchez also drove in a run for the PawSox.

In its series finale in Reading, Portland was leading the Phillies, 6-4, when the game was suspended due to lightning. Luis Exposito and Chih-Hsien Chiang had early RBI doubles to stake the Sea Dogs to a 2-0 lead, but Reading fought back with 4 runs off Stephen Fife, who pitched all 5.0 innings before the game was called. Trailing 4-2 in the top of the sixth, Chiang and Matt Sheeley drew bases-loaded walks before Nate Spears' two-run single made it 6-4. The Sea Dogs will have runners on the corners and two outs on June 4, when the game is scheduled to be completed at Hadlock Field.

In another low scoring affair with division-leading Winston-Salem (CWS), Stolmy Pimentel tossed 6.0 shutout innings as Salem topped the Dash, 2-1. Pimentel didn't allow a hit and walked just 1 while striking out 6. Alex Hassan drove in both runs for Salem, and Pete Hissey continued to swing a hot bat, going 2 for 3 with a double. Jeremy Kehrt allowed a run in 3.0 innings of relief to get the win.

In Greenville, the Drive fell for the fifth time in seven games, losing 7-5 to Charleston (NYY). Kendal Volz pitched well for Greenville, holding the Riverdogs to 2 runs on 4 hits in 5.0 innings, but Charleston got to Jeremiah Bayer to the tune of 5 runs on 6 hits to pull ahead for good. Jeremy Hazelbaker brought the game level at 2 with his fourth home run of the season in the second inning and added an RBI double in the eighth to finish the game 2 for 4. Reymond Fuentes was 2 for 5 and Christian Vazquez added a two-run double in the loss.

Player of the Night: Dusty Brown was 2 for 4, including a three-run home run to give Pawtucket a 5-4 walk-off win over Norfolk.
