Norfolk was off.
Behind Eddie Gamboa, the Baysox won 6-0. Gamboa must have had his knuckler working, as he shut out Reading for 7 seven strong innings, giving up 3 hits and 3 walks, striking out 6 with a GB/FB of 7/3. He threw 3 wild pitches and picked off a baserunner. Jason Gurka followed him up with 2 scoreless, allowing a hit and a walk, striking out 2 with a GB/FB of 3/1. Henry Urrutia went 2-3 with a walk. Ty Kelly went 1-4 with a walk.
Delmarva lost Game 1 3-1. Juan Guzman had a nice outing, giving up 1 ER in 6 IP on 4 hits and a walk, striking out 5 with a GB/FB of 6/2. Mychal Givens managed to give up 2 ER on 2 walks (no hits) in 1 IP with a GB/FB of 3/1 (there was a fielder's choice that did not result in an out, which is why the GB/FB totals more than the outs recorded). Adrian Marin went 1-3. Torsten Boss went 2-4 with a K. Joel Hutter went 0-2 and was removed during the game. The Shorebirds won Game 2 3-2. Lex Rutledge drew the start and gave up an unearned run in 3 IP, yielding 1 hit, striking out 7, walking none, recording a GB/FB of 3/0. The Hobgoblin picked up a win with a clean sheet in one inning, recording three ground ball outs. Boss went 0-3 with a K. Neither Hutter nor Marin played in Game 2.
The original DSLers won 3-2. Rochendrick Alexander went 0-3. Victor Medina went 1-4 with a double and a K.
The other DSLers won 4-1. 18 y/o Dominican righty Francisco Jimenez gave up 1 ER in 6 IP on 3 hits (1 HR), striking out 8, walking none, with a GB/FB of 4/1. He did hit 2 batters. 18 y/o Venezuelan shortstop Jacniel Cabrera went 1-3 with a double, a walk and 2 Ks. It was his season debut.
