Cup of Coffee: Bats fall silent as Padron impresses in relief


4/13 Cup of Coffee: It was a very quiet Friday night on the farm, as nobody in the system recorded an extra-base hit. Part of the reason, however, was due to a rainout in Salem and a suspended game between Trenton and Portland. Trevor Kelley and Angel Padron (pictured) each turned in impressive relief outings, combining for nine strikeouts and no walks in six innings.

The Pawtucket bats were silent against Syracuse, scattering just seven singles. Josh Ockimey reached twice with a walk and a single and scored the lone run. Mike Miller also walked and singled, driving in Ockimey. Chandler Shepherd didn't feature his best control, walking five in 5 1/3 innings, but he was able to limit the damage to two runs. Trevor Kelley punched out four without a walk in 1 2/3 innings and Bobby Poyner tossed a scoreless ninth.

Trenton Thunder (NYY) 2, Portland Sea Dogs 0 (suspended)
The Sea Dogs and Thunder had their game suspended in the bottom of the third inning due to rain. The Thunder scored a pair of runs off Portland starter Dedgar Jimenez before the tarps were pulled. The game will resume today at 1:00 pm. A seven-inning affair will follow the conclusion of the suspended game.

Frederick Keys (BAL) @ Salem Red Sox, PPD (inclement weather)
Salem had their game postponed due to rain. They will have a doubleheader today beginning at 5:05 pm.

Like the PawSox, the Drive bats were very quiet against Rome, as they recorded just four hits, all singles. Triston Casas and Jordan Wren each went 1 for 3 with a stolen base. Yasel Santana allowed five runs in just 3 2/3 innings, but only one run was earned. Angel Padron pitched the final 4 1/3 innings and dazzled with five strikeouts, no walks, no runs, and just one hit allowed.

Player of the Night: Angel Padron had his second consecutive impressive outing for Greenville. The 21-year-old left-hander, an international free agent signing in 2014, has thrown 8 1/3 innings this season with a 1.08 ERA. He has come out of the bullpen twice in 2019 and gone at least four innings both times. He made 29 appearances last year with Greenville, nine of them starts.
