Cup of Coffee: Shawaryn, Haviland deal, Devers collects two hits

5/13 Cup of Coffee: There wasn't a ton of offense last night, as all three affiliates that were in action took losses. Josh Tobias continued to swing a hot stick and Rafael Devers picked up a pair of hits. Mike Shawaryn put together another very nice outing and Jamie Callahan pitched well in his Triple-A debut.


Shawn Haviland (pictured) pitched well in the loss, going six innings and allowing just one run on three hits. He struck out four and walked one. Jamie Callahan made his first Triple-A appearance and tossed a scoreless inning with one strikeout and one walk. Rusney Castillo, Brock Holt, and Dan Butler each collected two hits. Holt is still on a rehab assignment and also made a terrific play at third base.

The Sea Dogs pitching staff had gone 22 consecutive innings without allowing a run, but it all unraveled after the third inning, as Portland pitching allowed 12 runs, including eight (five earned) allowed by starter Trey Ball. Luis Ysla had a clean 1 2/3 innings. Josh Tobias stayed red-hot with his second consecutive three-hit ballgame that included a double. Rafael Devers also had a good night by going 2 for 3 with a walk. After walking just once in his first 15 games, Devers has drawn 11 walks in his last 13 games, including seven in his last five contests.

Salem was rained out and will make it up today as part of a doubleheader beginning at 5:30 p.m.


Mike Shawaryn was solid for the sixth straight start, as he allowed two earned runs over 5 2/3 innings, while striking out nine and walking just one. He has 53 strikeouts and just nine walks in 35 innings this year. Hunter Smith finished the game with 2 1/3 scoreless innings and two strikeouts. Greenville had just four singles, but Mitchell Gunsolus reached three times with a single and two walks.


Player of the Night: Despite another good outing from Mike Shawaryn, the nod goes to Shawn Haviland, who allowed just four baserunners in six innings of work. The Pawtucket right-hander has quietly had a really nice season so far with a 3.11 ERA in six starts. The 31-year old was selected in the 33rd round of the 2008 draft by the Oakland A's. He has 37 strikeouts and 10 walks in 37 2/3 innings so far this season.
