Cup of Coffee: Salem's comeback falls short

4/21 Cup of Coffee: Only one game was played on Easter Sunday, with Salem falling to the Winston-Salem Dash (CWS), 10-8. William Cuevas struggled mightily, giving up eight runs while only recording two outs before being pulled in the first inning. Kyle Kraus was able to limit the damage, allowing only one run over the next 5 1/3 innings, allowing Salem to creep back into the game.

Salem scored two in the second and two in the third to cut the deficit in half. After Reed Gragnani hit an RBI double in the seventh, Salem had cut the lead to two. That was as close as they would get, as they dropped to 9-8 on the season. Ryan Dent (pictured) went 3 for 5 with two doubles and a triple, Gragnani went 3 for 5 with a double, and Jonathan Roof went 2 for 4 with a double and a walk. 


Player of the Night: Ryan Dent, who has spent parts of eight seasons in the Red Sox system, did all he could to bring Salem back from an early hole. Dent, who was a supplemental first round pick back in 2007, has played second base, shortstop, and left field this year for Salem, and he has been hitting the ball well to start the year.
