Khoury, Sheely come up big for Portland


6/5 Cup of Coffee: For every team but the PawSox, Friday saw a young starting pitcher help his team to victory, while a pair of unheralded players shined for the Sea Dogs.

Despite his impressive run of performances of late, Louisville (CWS) got to Kris Johnson early en route to an 8-4 pounding of Pawtucket. Johnson gave up all 4 of his runs in the first two frames, going 3.0 innings to take the loss. T.J. Large allowed 3 runs on 3 hits and a pair of walks in 2.0 innings and Ramon A. Ramirez fanned 4 in 3.0 innings of one-hit relief. Josh Reddick was 2 for 2 with a solo home run and a pair of walks, while Daniel Nava went 3 for 4 with an RBI in the loss.

In the completion of a suspended game from last month, Reading (PHI) scored 5 runs in the bottom of the ninth to top Portland, 10-7. The game resumed with Portland leading 6-4 in the top of the sixth, but Tommy Hottovy allowed 6 runs on 6 hits, including a three-run walk-off home run, to take the loss. Nate Spears homered in the eighth inning to give the Sea Dogs their only run after the resumption.

In the regularly scheduled game, Reading mounted a comeback and scored in the ninth, but Portland prevailed, 4-3. Kyle Weiland tossed 5.0 innings of three-hit, one-run ball while striking out 5 to get the win. The Sea Dogs offense was paced by Ryan Khoury, who was 4 for 5 with a triple and 2 runs scored, and Matt Sheely, who went 3 for 4 with an RBI. Che-Hsuan Lin had 2 hits and a pair of RBI, and Anthony Rizzo drove in a run for the winners. Santo Luis tossed 3.0 innings of one-run ball, and Bryce Cox allowed a run in the ninth to get the save.

Salem got back to its winning ways Friday when Pete Hissey doubled in the winning run in the bottom of the seventh in a 2-1 win over Myrtle Beach (ATL). Caleb Clay tossed 6.0 innings and struck out 4 while allowing just an unearned run, and Kyle Fernandes combined with Will Latimer for 3.0 innings of one-hit, shutout relief. Jon Hee was 2 for 4 with a double and a run scored in the win.

After posting a six-spot in the top of the third, the Drive held on for their second straight win, topping Kannapolis (CWS), 6-4. Yeiper Castillo impressed once again, lowering his ERA to 2.80 with 6.0 innings of four-hit ball. He allowed 2 runs, 1 earned, and fanned 6. Reynaldo Rodriguez homered to kick off the big third inning for the Drive and finished with a pair of hits and 2 RBI, as did Jeremy Hazelbaker. Reymond Fuentes also added 2 hits and an RBI. Chris Court gave up a run in 2.0 innings of relief, while Dennis Neuman allowed just an unearned run in the ninth to get the save.

In DSL action yesterday morning, the Red Sox scored three in the bottom of the ninth on a double by Raoell Kortstam and Curtney Duran's game-winning single to beat the DSL Astros, 9-8. Dreily Guerrero went 2 for 5 with a pair of RBI and Kortstam drove in 3 and scored twice. Yunior Ortega allowed just 1 run on 5 hits in 4.0 innings before Sully Bonnelly gave up 5 runs in 2.2 frames. Alexander Mateo allowed 2 runs in 2.1 innings to get the win for the 5-0 DSL Sox.

Player of the Night: Ryan Khoury, who was 4 for 5 with a triple and pair of runs scored in Portland's win over Reading. Khoury is batting .421 with an OPS of 1.082 since rejoining Portland.
