Sea Dogs
: Top prospects Che-Husan Lin, Jose Iglesias and Luis Exposito are each hitting .300 or better; Lin and Exposito have gone deep. ... Lefty Felix Doubront, who faced the Thunder three times last year, has eight strikeouts in nine innings. ... Lin has three stolen bases in as many chances. ... Casey Kelly threw 50 pitches in two innings during his Double-A debut on April 12. He gave up six runs in 2 2/3 innings but got a no-decision.

Notes: David Phelps and Stephen Fife, Friday's starters, faced each other on May 30 last year. Greenville won, 3-1, but neither pitcher figured in the decision. ... Dan Brewer and David Adams faced Fife in that game, going a combined 1-for-7. Brewer had the hit, a single. ... Jeremy Bleich has faced Portland once in his career. He faced Doubront on July 16,
