Kelly pitches well in loss


6/12 Cup of Coffee: After earning his first win last weekend, top prospect Casey Kelly continued to pitch well Friday night despite his team's loss.

It didn't take long for Indianapolis (PIT) to get to Randor Bierd as Pawtucket lost a 10-3 drubbing Friday night. Bierd allowed 9 runs, 8 earned on 8 hits in the first 2 innings before making way for TJ Large, Dustin Richardson, Fernando Cabrera, and Robert Manuel, who combined for 6.0 innings of five-hit, one-run relief. Bubba Bell and Gil Velazquez drove in a run each in the loss.

Casey Kelly piched well for Portland, but Akron scored a run in each of the last four innings as the Sea Dogs fell 4-3. Kelly fanned 5 and allowed just 1 run on 5 hits in 5.0 innings, but the Aeros knocked around Tommy Hottovy to the tune of 3 runs on 7 hits in 2.1 innings. Bryce Cox retired the only 2 batters he faced in the loss. Luis Exposito, Yamaico Navarro, and Chih-Hsien Chiang drove in runs for the Sea Dogs, while Anthony Rizzo and Che-Hsuan Lin were ejected for arguing after Rizzo had a home run incorrectly ruled a double in the sixth inning.

Tied at 5 heading into the ninth, Pete Hissey, Will Middlebrooks and Jorge Padron drove in runs in the final frame to give Salem an 8-5 win over Frederick (BAL). 5 Salem players had 2 hits on the evening, including Padron, who drove in 2 and hit his first career home run, and Middlebrooks, who drove in 3. Miguel Gonzalez got the start and allowed 5 runs in 3.0 innings, but Mike Lee and Will Latimer cleaned it up and combined for 6.0 innings of one-hit, shutout ball. Hissey, Ryan Lavarnway, and Oscar Tejeda also drove in a run in the win.

Jordan Flasher allowed 3 runs in the bottom of the ninth to make it interesting, but Greenville held on for a 7-6 win over Rome (ATL). Dan Butler was 3 for 4 with a pair of RBI, and Zach Gentile was 2 for 4 with 2 RBI. Reymond Fuentes scored twice and stole his 21st bag of the season, while Michael Almanzar added an RBI in the win. Starter Ryan Pressly allowed 3 runs on 6 hits in 5.0 innings before being relieved by Chris Court, who gave up just 1 hit and struck out 4 in 3.0 shutout innings.
Down in the Dominican, Jair Bogaerts and Derward Ruiz drove in 4 runs each as the DSL Red Sox continued their hot start with a 13-9 win over the DSL Rays. Jesus Loya, Lewis Urena, and Bogaerts each had 3 hits, while Kiler Gil got the win in relief, allowing just a hit in 4.0 innings. Mario Alcantara got the start and gave up 4 runs, 3 earned in 2.0 innings.

Player of the Night: Casey Kelly, who fanned 5 in 5.0 innings of one-run ball Friday.
