Indianapolis 4, Norfolk 3
Craig Anderson started for the Tides, going 4 1/3 with five strikeouts, one walk, and one run allowed, but a three-run fifth inning for Indianapolis was enough to win the game, as there was no more scoring from that point on. Norfolk had led 3-1.
Chris Heintz and Chris Roberson had two hits apiece for Norfolk, with Heintz managing to leg out a triple. It was a three-bag kind of day for 30-something Oriole catchers. Roberson had two RBIs and also stole a base. Mike Costanzo was 0-for-3 with three whiffs and a walk.
Jonathan Tucker was 2-for-4 with a double, raising his season average to .314, but the star of the loss was young Chris Tillman, who threw five innings of no-hit ball, walking one and striking out two. He was pulled after facing 16 batters, and Daniel Lonsberry took over.
Lonsberry pitched two-thirds of an inning, allowing six earned runs on three hits and two walks. Kam Mickolio inherited three runners from Lonsberry, and all scored. The Baysox got all three of their runs in the top of the fifth, and Akron plated all seven of their runs in the bottom of the sixth.
Nolan Reimold was 0-for-3 with a walk. He's hitting .162.
Frederick 6, Myrtle Beach 2
Wieters Watch! Wieters was 2-for-4 with his third home run and a walk. Matt Wieters is currently hitting .524/.621/1.000 with three homers, seven RBI, seven walks and two strikeouts.
Brandon Snyder was 1-for-3 with a double. Pedro Beato pitched six innings for the win, and Kyle Schmidt got a three-inning save.
Delmarva 2, Lakewood 1
Joseph Nowicki, Tyler Henson and Wally Crancer all went 2-for-4, and Luis Noel had a good start for the Shorebirds (5 IP, 6 H, 1 ER), but the win went to Joseph Esposito in relief. Pedro Florimon, Jr., scored the winning run in the bottom of the ninth on a wild pitch from Lakewood reliever Joseph Rocchio. That's how you win a ballgame!
