Norfolk 4, Lehigh Valley 5: Tsuyoshi Wada faced the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs again and allowed three earned runs in five innings. While Wada struck out six, he also walked four. Ryan Flaherty chipped in a double and a homer in support of Wada and Russ Canzler walked thrice. The X Man had a hit and struck out twice, while L.J. Hoes was 0-3.
Bowie 5, Trenton 8: A nice start by Mike Wright unravelled quickly and was ultimately squandered. Wright kept the Thunder of the board for five innings, but errors by Wright and Ty Kelly opened the door to a four run sixth. Wright only allowed three hits and two walks in his six innings of work while inducing eight groundouts and striking out eight. Tim Bascom pitched two perfect innings in relief of Wright. Kelly atoned for his defensive miscue by hitting two doubles and a single and getting on base via a walk. Henry Urrutia had a hit and struck out twice in five trips.
Frederick 8, Salem 1: Keys were shaking at Harry Grove Stadium as the black and orange backed up Eduardo Rodriguez's seven inning effort with an offensive outburst. In another solid outing, Rodriguez walked three and struck out four allowing four hits and an earned run. Tom Winegardner and Gene Escat each pitched a perfect inning in relief. Offensively, Christian Walker and Brenden Webb homered and Jerome Pena doubled (2-4, 1-3 and 1-3 on the day respectively). MIchael Ohlman was 1-3 with a walk and has five hits and two walks since coming off of the DL in the 23rd. Glynn Davis DNP.
Delmarva 2, Greensboro 11: The crazy thing here is, Mark Blackmar only allowed two earned runs in five innings. Mychal Givens, however, had a forgettable day. The former middle infielder allowed six earned runs in .2 innings, though two of those came via a home run allowed by Jose Nivar. Not much to tell offensively, though Lucas Herbst continued his modest hit streak while Rod Bernadina and Adrian Marin also singled. Torsten Boss was held hitless.
