Younginer wins debut


6/20 Cup of Coffee: There was a mixed bag in terms of results Saturday night, but there was no debate about Madison Younginer, who shined in his debut in Lowell's big win.

Bubba Bell's three-run triple was key to a six-run eighth inning as the PawSox snuck past Columbus (CLE) 8-7. Starter Adam Mills hit a few bumps, allowing 6 runs on 11 hits in 5.2 innings. Chad Paronto struck out 4 in 2.1 scoreless innings before Fernando Cabrera tossed a scoreless ninth to get the save. Bell and Ryan Shealy each had 2 hits, with Shealy driving in a pair on the night. Angel Sanchez and Gil Velazquez each added 2 hits and an RBI in the win.

In Portland, Yamaico Navarro hit a pair of home runs as the Sea Dogs topped Akron (CLE) 11-5. Navarro knocked a solo shot in the second and a two-run shot in the third to pull the home side ahead. He had 3 hits, as did Luis Exposito and Nate Spears, with Exposito adding a home run and 2 RBI in the win. Stephen Fife struck out 6 and allowed 5 runs, 4 earned in 7.0 innings, and Santo Luis threw 2.0 innings of scorless, two-hit relief.

In Salem, Caleb Clay, Lance McClain and Will Latimer combined for a five-hit shoutout as the Red Sox won 12-0 over Kinston (CLE). Clay walked 5 in 4.0 innings, while McClain allowed 2.0 hits in 3.0 innings and Latimer gave up a hit in 2.o frames. Oscar Tejeda was 4 for 5 in the win, and Jorge Padron added 3 hits and an RBI. Tim Federowicz had 2 doubles and 3 RBI, while Ryan Lavarnway had 2 RBI on a pair of doubles himself. Pete Hissey also had 2 hits and an RBI in the win.

Greenville had trouble limiting the Hickory (ATL) offense in a 9-5 loss Saturday night. Christian Vazquez had 3 hits and an RBI, Vladimir Frias, Reymond Fuentes, and Michael Almanzar all went 2 for 5 with a double, and Jeremy Hazelbaker had 2 hits and his 32nd stolen base of the season. Frias hit a solo shot early as the Drive jumped out to a 3-1 lead, but they couldn't hold on. Starter Pete Ruiz gave up 5 earned on 8 hits in 5.2 innings, and Pedro Perez allowed 4 in 2.1 innings of relief.

On the second day of the season, an impressive debut by Younginer gave Lowell it's first win of the season with a 6-2 stymying of Vermont (WAS). Younginer yielded just 1 hit in 5.0 shutout innings, and Charle Rosario gave up 2 runs on 2 hits in 3.2 innings of relief. Jose Garcia went 4 for 5 with a double, and Felix Sanchez scored twice on a 3 for 5 night. Sean Killeen hit a three-run home run in the ninth to seal the deal, and Cesare Angeloni record the final out in the win.

In the Dominican Summer League, the Red Sox were pounded by the Pirates 11-2. Starter William Cuevas gave up 3 runs in 4.0 innings, but the real damage was done against Ricardo Betancourt, who retired just 1 batter but was charged with 6 runs. Curtney Doran, Derward Ruiz, and Juan Ugas each had 2 hits in the loss.

Player of the Night: Madison Younginer was electric in his professional debut, allowing a hit and walking 1 in 5.0 scoreless innings. He struck out 3 on the night.
