Kelly notches first win of 2010


6/6 Cup of Coffee: It was a good night for the affiliates Saturday, as Portland's split was the only blemish of the night as top prospect Casey Kelly earned his first win of the 2010 season.

Ryan Kalish hit a two-run home run, his first in Triple-A in the bottom of the 13th as Pawtucket topped Louisville (CIN) 8-6. Michael Bowden got the start and allowed 3 runs in 5.1 innings and Chad Paronto gave up 2 runs in .1 inning to put the PawSox in a hole, but Boof Bonser and Dustin Richardson came out of the pen to hold Louisville scoreless. The PawSox clawed back when Lars Anderson and Aaron Bates homered in the eighth. Niuman Romero and Gustavo Romero each had 3 hits in the win, and Robert Manuel tossed 3.0 scoreless innings to get the win.

In the first of a pair of 7-inning games Saturday, Casey Kelly recorded his first win of the season in a 6-0 win over Reading (PHI). Kelly fanned 4 in 6.0 shutout innings, allowing 4 hits and walking just 1 to earn his first win of the campaign. Ray Chang was 2 for 3 with a three-run home run and Anthony Rizzo hit a solo shot in the fifth for Portland. Luis Exposito drove in a pair and Jason Rice tossed a hitless seventh to close out the game.

In the second game, Eammon Portice was tagged for 8 runs, 6 earned on 10 hits in an 8-5 nine-inning loss to Reading. Portice relieved Jeremy Kehrt, who tossed 5.0 innings of three-hit shutout ball. Yamiaco Navarro and Ray Chang each had a pair of hits, while Navarro drove in 3 runs and Chang 2. Anthony Rizzo had a pair of doubles in the loss.

In Salem, the Red Sox faced off against young Braves prospect Julio Teheran and came out with a 6-4 win over Myrtle Beach (ATL). The Pelicans scored 2 in the top of the first off Salem starter Alex Wilson, who rebounded nicely to go 4.1 innings, allowing 3 runs on 5 hits. Oscar Tejeda was 4 for 4 with a pair of doubles and an RBI and Alex Hassan and Mitch Dening each had 2 hits in the win. Lance McClain allowed a run on 2 hits in 2.1 innings before Blake Maxwell tossed 3.0 one-hit, shutout innings to get the win.

In Greenville, the Drive snapped their streak of alternating wins and losses with a 14-4 trouncing of Augusta (SF). Ryan Pressly allowed a run on 7 hits in 4.0 innings before Jordan Flasher allowed 3 runs on 5 hits in 2.0 innings to bring the Green Jackets back into contention. Vladimir Frias was 3 for 5 with 4 RBI while Ronald Bermudez and Jeremy Hazelbaker had 3 RBI. Reymond Fuentes had a hit and a pair of RBI, and Anatanaer Batista tossed 3.0 scoreless innings to get the win.

Player of the Night: Ronald Bermudez was 4 for 6 with a pair of doubles and 3 RBI Saturday night. He also scored 3 runs in Greenville's 14-4 win over Augusta.
