Cup of Coffee: Lozada, O'Linger carry Lowell to win


9/6 Cup of Coffee: With Greenville laying in wait for the playoffs begin, the Spinners were the only affiliate in action as the minor league season draws to a close. In his second game with Lowell, Everlouis Lozada paced the offense, while the Spinners pitching also impressed.

The Spinners rallied late to snatch a win to cap their second-to-last series of the season. Everlouis Loazada impressed in his second game with Lowell, going 3 for 5 with the game-tying RBI single in the seventh. Alexander Martinez drove in the go-ahead run in the eighth on an RBI groundout. Cole Brannen added an RBI triple, going 1 for 2 with a pair of walks. It had been a frustrating night at the dish until taking the lead, as the Spinners left 11 men on base and went 1 for 11 with runners in scoring position.


Durin O'Linger (pictured) earned the win, throwing four innings of shutout relief. The undrafted righty gave up just two hits, did allow a walk and struck out five. Angel Padron took the no-decision in a solid start, giving up two runs (one earned) on five hits in five innings of work. He walked one and struck out four.

Player of the Night: The 18-year-old switch-hitting Everlouis Lozada picked up largely from where he left off with the GCL squad where he hit .314/.383/.396 with them. He caught fire in August, where he hit .356 in 87 at-bats.
