Greenville explodes for 17 in rout


8/7 Cup of Coffee: Greenville scored 17 runs in a big win Friday night, while Reymond Fuentes and Josh Reddick had huge nights at the plate.

Reddick continued to swing a scorching hot bat, going 3 for 5 with a home run and 4 RBI in Pawtucket's 9-5 loss to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre (NYY). Kris Johnson was charged with 5 runs in 4.0 innings, and Santo Luis allowed a run in 2.0 innings of relief before Chad Paronto let it get out of hand with a three-run eighth. Fernando Cabrera recorded the final 5 outs, and Jack Hannahan added a solo home run and 2 walks in the loss.

Casey Kelly fared much better than he did his last time out, but the Portland bullpen folded in a 7-4 loss to Richmond (SF). He allowed 4 runs, 3 earned on 7 hits in 6.2 innings and left with the game tied, but Mitch Herold surrendered 3 runs in the eighth to spoil the outing. Chih-Hsien Chiang hit a solo home run in the seventh, while Ray Chang and Nate Spears each had a double and an RBI. Bryce Cox threw a scorless ninth.

Stolmy Pimentel struck out 8 and clawed to within a game of .500 in Salem's 7-5 win over Wilmington (KC). In 6.0 innings, Pimentel allowed 3 runs on 7 hits, 2 of which were home runs. Mitch Dening and Tim Federowicz added a double and an RBI, and Alex Hassan was 3 for 4 with a pair of doubles. Lance McClain allowed 2 runs in the seventh, and Kyle Fernandes recorded the six-out save. Will Middlebrooks and Oscar Tejeda also drove in runs in the win.

A pair of five-run innings were more than enough for Greenville as they cruised to a 17-1 win over Rome (ATL). Reymond Fuentes was 5 for 5 with a home run and 3 RBI, Michael Almanzar smacked a three-run home run, and Zach Gentile also drove in 3 for the Drive. Kendal Volz surrendered the Braves' only run, walking 4 and allowing 3 hits in 3.0 innings before Chris Court and Dennis Neuman combined for 5.0 innings of shutout relief. Sean Kileen and Reynaldo Rodriguez added 2 RBI each in the win.

It was another day and another late-inning loss for Lowell, who tied the game at 2 in the seventh before surrendering the winning run in the eighth to fall 3-2 to Williamsport (PHI). Hunter Cervenka went the first 5.0 innings, allowing 2 runs, 1 earned on 3 hits, and Stephen Fox pitched 2 hitless innings before surrendering the winning run in the eighth. Mike Hacker retired the final two outs of the eighth. Joantoni Garcia and Bryce Brentz drove in runs, while Josue Peley had half of the Spinners' four hits.

Juan Rodriguez put the GCL Red Sox behind early, but they rebounded for a 5-3 win over the Twins. After Rodriguez surrendered 2 runs in the first, Swen Huijer tossed 5.0 innings of two-hit, shutout ball. Justin Erasmus gave them 2.0 innings, allowing an unearned run before TJ Large tossed a perfect ninth for the save. Jose Vinicio had 2 hits, including a triple and an RBI, while Heiker Meneses, Luke Yoder, and Ken Roque all drove in runs in the win.

The DSL Red Sox managed just 4 hits in a 2-1 loss to the Rays. Nefi Ogando threw 4.0 innings of five-hit, one run ball and struck out 4, and Carlos Pinales allowed the winner in the ninth after 4.0 scoreless frames. Xander Bogaerts had 2 hits in the loss.

Player of the Night: Reymond Fuentes had 5 hits in 5 at-bats Friday night, including a home run and 3 runs batted in.
