Cup of Coffee: Stankiewicz, Anderson deal, Holt homers


5/22 Cup of Coffee: Offense was scarce on Sunday, as each team in action tallied just one run. Portland was able to win with just one run, however, thanks to great pitching from starter Teddy Stankiewicz and Yankory Pimentel. Brock Holt homered in another rehab game as well. Greenville's game was canceled due to inclement weather.

Henry Owens delivered a solid start in Buffalo by allowing just two earned runs in six innings, but it wasn't enough to overcome an anemic performance from the offense. He struck out seven and walked three. Blaine Boyer tossed two scoreless innings in relief with two strikeouts. In a rehab game, Brock Holt hit a solo home run as part of a 1-for-4 game. Steve Selsky added a double and Ryan Court reached twice with a single and a walk. 

-----

Teddy Stankiewicz was brilliant, hurling seven shutout innings while allowing just five hits (all singles) and two walks. He lowered his season ERA to 3.24. Yankory Pimentel finished it off with two scoreless innings and two strikeouts. Nick Longhi drove in the lone run with a fourth-inning single that scored Tzu-Wei Lin, who singled and walked. 

-----

Salem let the win slip away in the seventh inning when Austin Glorius surrendered all five of Myrtle Beach's runs. After a rough first outing with Salem, Shaun Anderson (pictured) turned it around with six scoreless frames, allowing just three baserunners and striking out four. Mitchell Osnowitz pitched two shutout innings as well. Chad De La Guerra proceeded the only run with a solo shot. 

-----

The game was canceled and will not be made up at any point, as this was the last meeting of the fist half for the two teams.

-----

Player of the Night: Shaun Anderson allowed seven earned runs in his first start with Salem, but was able to flip the script on Sunday. The right-hander allowed just two singles and a walk. He came out hot, striking out the side in the first inning. Over the final five innings, he induced seven groundouts, including one double play ball.
