Cup of Coffee: Reyes, Chatham standout for Portland


4/5 Cup of Coffee: Only two Red Sox affiliates got games in on a rainy Friday. Pawtucket and Salem were both postponed and will play doubleheaders today. Denyi Reyes (pictured) turned in a terrific outing for Portland and C.J. Chatham collected three hits. Greenville walked off in the bottom of the ninth, as Triston Casas crossed the plate for the winning run.

The Sea Dogs let this one slip away late, allowing five runs in the final three innings, spoiling a terrific Double-A debut for Denyi Reyes. The 22-year-old righty tossed six innings and allowed only two hits and one run while punching out four. SoxProspects.com's eighth-ranked prospect C.J. Chatham had a big game, going 3 for 5 with a pair of doubles. Durbin Feltman's first appearance for Portland did not go well, as he blew the save in the ninth inning by allowing a run on two walks and a hit. Tate Matheny provided a spark on defense, making a tremendous diving grab in right-center field.

Salem Red Sox @ Wilmington Blue Rocks (KC), PPD (inclement weather)
Salem's second game of the season was also postponed due to rain. They will make it up as part of a doubleheader today beginning at 5:05 pm.

Triston Casas went 1 for 3 with a double and a walk as he scored the winning run in the bottom of the ninth inning on an RBI groundout from Grant Williams. Tyler Esplin added a pair of hits and a double as well. Thad Ward turned in a solid start, allowing just two runs in five innings while striking out six. The Drive bullpen was tremendous, headlined by Rio Gomez, who struck out four in 2 2/3 scoreless frames. Dustin Pedroia played for the second straight night as part of his rehab, this time for five innings. He went 1 for 2 with a single.

Player of the Night: Denyi Reyes finished off 2018 with 12 wins, an ERA south of two, and a WHIP under one. He picked up right where he left off, allowing just two hits in six innings of work. Reyes was an international free agent signing in 2014 and is ranked 19th at SoxProspects.com.
