Pawtucket (Red Sox) 1 Norfolk 3
Eddie Gamboa has the knuckler dancing as the weather warms. 5 IP and 7 Ks for the Tides last night; he allowed just 1 hit but walked 3 and hit 1 batter. Evan Meek came on to close out the game for his 2nd Save. He K'd 2 and allowed a single. The offense was paced by Quinten Berry and Ivan De Jesus who each had 2 hits. Berry added his 11 stolen base.
Wilmington (Royals) 3 Frederick 0
Branden Kline handled a dangerous Wilmington lineup with aplomb, yielding 6 hits, 3 BBs, and 1 ER over 6.2 IP where he K'd 5. But the pitchers for Wilmington were a bit better, as they held the Keys offense to just 3 hits and 2 walks on the night. Brenden Webb hit a double and K'd. Adrian Marin, coming off his Player of the Week nod was held hitless in 3 at bats and committed his 9th error of the season in the field.
Delmarva 2 Hagerstown (Nationals) 4
(SS) Justin Viele had a very bad night. 0 for 4 at the plate is bad enough, but he added 4 errors (2 throwing, 2 fielding) to the ledger. Ouch. But it wouldn't be a Shorebirds game without an Outfield Assist. Tonight's was provided courtesy of (RF) Coner Bierfeldt who threw out a runner attempting to advance from 2nd to 3rd on a fly out. (1B) Trey Mancini went 3 for 4 at the plate, including his 2nd HR of the season in the 4th. (CF) Mike Yastrzemski managed another multi-hit night, going 2 for 5. (LF) Gregory Lorenzo stole his 18th bag of the season.
(RHP) Sebastian Vader failed to go 7 IP for the first time in 4 starts. But he did go 6, and may have been able to handle 7 if not for some shoddy defense behind him that cost him 2 unearned runs. He allowed 5 hits and 2 BBs, chucked a wild pitch and K'd 5 while generating 13 ground outs to just 2 fly outs. hummina hummina.
