Cup of Coffee: Stankiewicz slams door on Altoona; Cedrola knocks three hits


5/19 Cup of Coffee: Including a scheduled off day on Monday, Salem has not gotten a game in since Sunday, as rain continued to pound Virginia, with the Red Sox getting rained out for the fourth consecutive day. Thanks to Teddy Stankiewicz (pictured), Portland was the only squad to win out of those that played, despite Lorenzo Cedrola's three hits for Greenville in a close loss.

Rochester Red Wings (MIN) 2, Pawtucket Red Sox 0

Dustin Pedroia was 0 for 2 with a pair of walks in his relief appearance and that was the type of offensive night the rest of the Pawtucket lineup had, as they were four-hit as part of a shutout in its series opener with Rochester. Also in rehab, Tyler Thornburg and Austin Maddox pitched a scoreless inning each. Anuery Tavarez was the only bright spot offensively, working a walk as part of a 2-for-3 evening, wasting Chandler Shepherd's strong outing. He gave the PawSox six innings, allowing two runs to come across (one earned) on seven hits. He walked one and struck out three.

Portland Sea Dogs 8, Altoona Curve (PIT) 4

In a piggyback role, Teddy Stankiewicz threw 6 1/3 innings of shutout ball, getting the win in a contest that saw the Sea Dogs score eight runs for the fourth consecutive time. Stankiewicz allowed just five hits, did not walk a batter and struck out seven. On the offensive side, four Portland hitters had multi-hit outings, including Danny Mars' 3 for 5 from the leadoff spot. Jantzen Witte, Josh Ockimey and Luke Tendler each had two RBI as the Sea Dogs built a 7-0 lead after three innings. Altoona scored four in the third, all charged to Travis Lakins.

Wilmington Blue Rocks (KC) at Salem Red Sox, PPD (Weather)

Salem has not played since Sunday, as its entire series against Potomac, from Tuesday to Thursday, was rained out. Bad weather has rocked Virginia all week and knocked out this series' opener. The two teams will play a doubleheader on Sunday to make it up.

Augusta GreenJackets (SF) 2, Greenville Drive 1
Lorenzo Cedrola notched three hits, but he had three of the Drive's five base knocks and drove in their only run as they fell to Augusta. Emmanuel De Jesus scattered three hits across six innings and the only damage he allowed was a solo home run in the second. He struck out 10 batters, which was a season-high, and did not walk anyone. Marcos Lantigua allowed the other run on a wild pitch in the seventh but was otherwise solid, surrendering only one hit in two innings to go along with four strikeouts. Dominic LoBrutto also gave up one hit in his shutout inning of work.
-----
Player of the Day: Altoona rallied to make a 7-0 game a 7-4 game in the third inning off Travis Lakins, but Teddy Stankiewicz entered, got the out and by the time he threw his last pitch, the game was over. He shut out the Curve the rest of the way and lowered his ERA by almost a full run down to 5.40 from 6.37. He also equaled a season-high seven strikeouts.
