Norfolk Tides 2, Indianapolis Indians 5
The Tides put nine men on base, but were 0-9 with RISP. Xavier Paul homered and Johnny Monell doubled, but the Tides didn't really do much else of consequence. In his third game back from the DL, Francisco Peguero was hitless, but drew a walk.
Mike Wright was able to pick up six strikeouts against one walk, but got into a bit of a jam in the fourth. He allowed a pair of singles and then got two outs before allowing a double. Wright left the game with one out in the bottom of the fifth having allowed four earned runs. Wright has by no means been spectacular at Norfolk thus far, but even accounting for today's outing, it could be said that he has met or exceeded expectations.
Bowie Baysox 1, New Britain Rock Cats 11
Tyler Wilson found himself on the short end of his defense's miscues as the third inning kicked off with Niuman Romero misplaying a ball hit by former Baysock Brandon Waring. Wilson managed to get two outs, before things went pear-shaped. Wilson walked Corey Wimberley and then gave up a series of singles which allowed the Rock Cats to take a lead they would never relinquish. Four of the five runs charged to Wilson were unearned.
Not much of anything happened on offense for the usually potent Baysox.
Frederick Keys 4, Winston-Salem Dash 3
The Keys came back from two down to win it the bottom of the ninth following a two run homer from Swingin Sammie Starr and a go ahead single off the bat of Brenden Webb. Glynn Davis scored the winning run. Davis had a pair of hits on the night, a steal and some heads up baserunning that put him in scoring position prior to Webb's single. Davis continues to be one of the system's bright lights this young season.
Making his first start for the Keys, Joe Van Meter achieved a less than desirable outcome (4 BB, 0K), but Miguel Chalas and Matt Price put up four scoreless innings of relief to allow the Keys to come back to life and emerge victorious.
Frederick Keys 2, Winston-Salem Dash 5
Known more for being a groundball guy, Brady Wager allowed two homers to Dash hitters. He still induced eight groundouts in five innings, but also gave up eight more hits in addition to the homers. Mychal Givens appears to be back on track. The former infielder turned his second consecutive scoreless appearance after his phenomenally bad performance against Myrtle Beach on May 1.
For the Keys offense, Adrian Marin was perfect on the day going 3-3. Glynn Davis doubled and walked, but was also charged with a throwing error.
Delmarva Shorebirds 5, Lakewood Blue Claws 6
To say that the Shorebirds are not exactly carrying the most polished defenders might be a bit of an understatement. The Shorebireds committed four errors on the day including Jeff Kemp's eleventh and Drew Dosch's eighth.
Mike Yastrzemski continued to make his case for promotion with a two double afternoon. Yastrzemski also stole his eighth base of the season. Trey Mancini and Chance Sisco also each had a pair of hits.
Bennett Parry and Shorebird debutante Luis Gonzales pitched scoreless relief appearances.
