Cup of Coffee: Cespedes seemingly promoted, but FCL Sox race to victory


6/25 Cup of Coffee: The big news on the day was the word of the not-yet-official promotion of Yoelin Cespedes to Salem, but his old FCL teammates ran wild on the basepaths to secure the victory. The DSL squads split, with Carlos Carrasquel providing the offense in support of two-hitter by Dariel Morillo and a trio of relievers.

The Sox were limited to four hits but worked nine walks, including four during a three-run rally in the second inning. They also put tremendous pressure on the Pirates while on the basepaths, stealing eight bases including a double steal in which Franyer Noria raced home while Franklin Arias swiped second. Raimundo De Los Santos stole three of those bases while going 1 for 3 with a walk. Deybi Salcedo got the start, allowing two runs in four innings, striking out seven against one walk. Wuilliams Rodriguez was credited with the win, giving up one run on two hits in three frames.

A quartet hurlers combined for a two-hitter as Team Red cruised to victory. Dariel Morillo went the first four innings, allowing an unearned run on one hit, striking out three and walking one. Yander Bonaci and Oscar Sanchez followed with two hitless frames apiece, and Greider Colina surrendered a single in a scoreless ninth to close out the win. Carlos Carrasquel led the offense, going 3 for 4 with a double, walk, and four RBI. Justin Barry doubled and scored two runs as part of a 2-for-5 afternoon, while Jorge Rodriguez scored four runs.

Team Blue squandered its share of opportunities, going 0 for 11 with runners in scoring position. Justin Gonzales continued to pace the offense, going 2 for 5 with a triple, RBI, and run scored. Moises Bolivar also picked up a pair of hits. Yoelvin Chirino took the loss, giving up five runs on seven hits in three innings.
