They'll play a double-header today.

Erie 9, Bowie 6 (10 innings)

That's right -- Bowie lost another one in extra innings, with another ridiculous double digit inning explosion by the Seawolves. After losing 8-3 in their opener in 11, the Baysox came back the next night to allow Erie to drop six runs in the top of the 10th. They came back with three in the bottom of the inning, but fell short. 27-year old Chris Waters started and went three innings, and Gerardo Casadiego threw three innings after him. Ryan Keefer took the loss, allowing four earned in 1 2/3 innings. First baseman Ryan Finan took over on the mound to close it out, allowing two earned in a third of an inning, walking two. God bless minor league baseball.

Finan also went 2-for-5 at the plate. Nolan Reimold was 1-for-5. Center fielder Mike Rodriguez was 3-for-4.

Frederick 2, Lynchburg 0

Brandon Snyder and Chris Vinyard both went 2-for-3 at the plate, and Matt Wieters was 1-for-2 with a walk and an RBI. Brandon Tripp had the Keys' other RBI on a 1-for-3 night. Brandon Erbe might have his groove back, as he went five scoreless with five strikeouts and a walk.

Delmarva 4, Hagerstown 3

First baseman Joseph "Balls" Mahoney had two RBIs and Kieron Pope had one, leading the Shorebirds over the Suns. Luis Noel struck out four in four innings pitched in the start, allowing two runs on six hits. Pope and CF-LF David Cash both had doubles for Delmarva.
