Drive eliminated after 4-2 loss


9/19 Cup of Coffee: With Greenville's 4-2 loss to Lakewood (PHI), we find a nice place on the shelf for the coffee machine as the the last of the 2010 farm teams saw their season end. Lakewood took their second straight South Atlantic League Championship Series, beating the Drive 3 games to 1.

The Drive took a 2-0 lead in the top half of the third when Derrik Gibson and Reynaldo Rodriguez both grounded out to drive in a run. Drake Britton cruised until the fifth inning, where he was charged with 2 runs before Kendal Volz made his first appearance of the playoffs and promptly allowed the game-deciding two-run home run. Britton struck out 5 and walked 4 in 4.2 innings, and Volz fanned 4 in 3.1 innings of relief. Kolbrin Vitek singled to open the sixth, but he was the last baserunner Greenville would have. Jeremy Hazelbaker and Shannon Wilkerson each had a pair of singles in the loss.

Player of the Night: Shannon Wilkerson was 2 for 3 with a run scored in the season finale for the Drive.
