Cup of Coffee: Bello leads great Greenville pitching performance


4/20 Cup of Coffee: There were two more postponements on Friday, so only Portland and Greenville saw action. The Sea Dogs fell just short of completing an incredible comeback led by C.J. Chatham. The Drive received a tremendous effort on the mound, as three pitchers combined to toss a shutout with 12 strikeouts and no walks.

After entering the bottom of the seventh down 10-1, Portland broke out for eight runs, but it was still too little too late. C.J. Chatham had a big game, going 2 for 4 with a double and four RBI. Brett Netzer went 2 for 3, Bobby Dalbec ripped an RBI double, and Tate Matheny collected two RBI. Denyi Reyes took the loss after allowing nine runs in just 3 1/3 innings. Durbin Feltman struggled as well, allowing a walk and a two-run home run in his only inning of work.

The Drive got three stellar pitching performances, the first from starter Brayan Bello (pictured) who went five scoreless innings and struck out five without walking a batter. Yorvin Pantoja and Rio Gomez each went two innings in relief and did not allow a hit or a walk. Pantoja struck out four and Gomez struck out three. Grant Williams roped a two-run single for Greenville's only runs. Kole Cottam and Devlin Granberg each had two-hit games and Jordan Wren tripled and walked.

Player of the Night: 19-year old Brayan Bello turned in this third consecutive solid outing to start the season. Overall, the righty has surrendered just two runs in 14 innings, good for a 1.29 ERA. Bello was an international free agent signing in 2017. He spent most of last season in the DSL, where he posted a 1.68 ERA in 64 1/3 innings.
