The aforementioned Tides won 3-2. Jonathan Schoop went 1-4. Russ Canzler went 2-4 with a double with 2 strikeouts. LJ Hoes and Lew Ford DNP.

Bowie gave up 5 in the 9th and lost 8-3. Stealth prospect Devin Jones yielded 3 ER in 5 IP on six hits and a walk, striking out 3 with a GB/FB of 7/3.

The Shorebirds proved victorious winning 9-4 today. Juan Guzman, a pitcher I have been following, had a rough go of it, giving up 3 ER in 3.2 IP on six hits (1 HR) and hitting two men (walking none), striking out 7 with a GB/FB of 0/2. He certainly can miss bats, but it looks like he needs quite a bit of polish. Matt Hobgood went 2 scoreless again, pitching around a hit and a walk, striking out 2, with a GB/FB of 4/0. Adrian Marin went 2-5. Joel Hutter went 0-3 but was hit twice. Torsten Boss went 1-4 with a walk and a K.
