Norfolk 0, Charlotte 3
Eddie Gamboa made a solid start in place of Kevin Gausman. The games with Gausman have begun already this year and he was scratched in case he's needed in a potential weather-related doubleheader in Detroit this weekend. Anyhow, Gamboa walked one, struck out six and allowed a home run in five innigs pitched. Save for Jemile Weeks, the offense was relatively silent. Weeks tripled and singled. Henry Urrutia singled and struck out twice while Alexi Casilla walked twice.
Bowie 12, Harrisburg 6
Eduardo Rodriguez didn't quite have the season debut one imagines he would've hoped for, but the Baysox offense more than picked up the slack. Rodriguez allowed 10 baserunners and four earned runs in five innings, while only striking out two batters. Those in attendance noted nice stuff, but spotty command (see here and video here). Beginning his second season at Bowie, Garabez Rosa singled and hit a three run homer. Dariel Alvarez doubled twice while Michael Ohlman doubled and walked and Christian Walker doubled, singled and made an error. Every player in the lineup got on base. Buchanan "Buck" Britton capped off a nice night for the Britton family with three hits and a steal.
Frederick 6, Lynchburg 2
Well, that went well, huh? Branden Kline went a solid five innings striking out 4, inducing six groundballs and allowing one earned run. Matt Hobgood finished the game with two shutout innings. Offensively, the Keys were firing on all cylinders. Glynn Davis scored all three times he got on base while driving in a pair and stealing a base. Brenden Webb singled, doubled and walked and to round out the offensive production from the outfield, Trent Mummey hit a pair of singles...though he also got picked off. Wynston Sawyer threw out one would be base thief.
Delmarva 3, Asheville 8
The big news is that teenage catcher Chance Sisco had a heck of a debut in full season ball. Sisco stroked two doubles, drew a walk and scored twice. Bowie native Jeff Kemp singled, tripled and walked, but temper your excitement...at 23, he's a man among boys in the Sally League. Connor Bierfeldt, Drew Dosch and Mike Yaztrzemski went a combined 0-12. Greg Lorenzo also singled and had two outfield assists. Stephen Brault had a forgettable outing, but big Jon Keller closed out the game with four strikeouts in two shutout innings. Also of note, old friend Mike Deveraux is a coach for the Tourists.
