Norfolk 4, Buffalo 7: The Tides have cooled off a bit latly, but Jason Pridie hasn't missed a beat since coming off the DL. The journeyman outfielder has been 8-23 with three walks since May 28. Yamaico Navarro was hitless, but walked twice. L.J. Hoes did not play and the X Man was 1-4 with three strikeouts (16 in 44 Norfolk at bats). Jair Jurrjens was pulled in the third after allowing six earned runs, three of which came via two homers. Chris Jones, Andy Loomis and Daniel McCutchen allowed one run the rest of the way.
Bowie 4, New Britain 5: Jake Pettit allowed two home runs and five earned runs in seven innings and it was more than the Baysox offense could handle. Despite Henry Urrutia and Ty Kelly acquiring their customary two hits, the offense was largely silent. Brandon Waring hit a solo homer, his third in three days and is slashing .314/.455/.771 in his last ten games.
Frederick 5, Wilmington 3: Another fine performance from Tim Berry helped the Keys lock down a win against the Blue Rocks. Coming off a disastrous eight earned run outing in his previous turn, Berry struck out five and allowed nine baserunners in six innings. Berry has allowed seven homers in 51.1 innings. Offensively, the bottom of the order set up the top. The last four hitters set up the top of the lineup as Brenden Webb, Travis Adair, Jason Esposito and John Ruettiger went 8-15 with a walk. The top half of the lineup was only 2-18, but one of those hits was a Jerome Pena grand slam.
Delmarva 10, Greensboro 4: Another day, another disappointing outing for Parker Bridwell. The big righty allowed a home run, four walks and three earned runs in five innings. Jose Nivar pitched three shutout innings in relief. Rod Bernadina, Torsten Boss and Nik Balog each had a pair of hits. Bernadina's line included a double, while Boss added a couple walks and is hopefully shaking off his recent funk.
As is customary on Sundays, there were no Dominican Summer League games.
