Buffalo (Blue Jays) 2, Norfolk Tides 1
On the whole, you're not going to win many games where you get only five hits and score only one run. Eddie Gamboa pitched a strong game for the Tides, giving up a run on three hits and two walks in six innings of work. When he left the game, there was a 1-1 tie, but an unearned run crossed the plate in the seventh inning thanks to an error in the field by Chris Parmelee.
Michael Almanzar and Sharlon Schoop, brother of Jonathan, each collected a pair of hits.
Bowie Baysox 13, Erie (Tigers) 3
Every Baysox starter collected at least one hit, with Mike Yastrzemski and Garabez Rosa leading the way with three hits apiece. Newly-returned Brandon Snyder hit a home run, as did recent trade acquisition Chris O'Brien. All of this was part of a storm of 17 hits by Bowie's offense.
Both Bundy brothers pitched in the game. Dylan Bundy had his latest three-inning start, striking out an impressive five batters in three perfect innings of work. He mowed through the SeaWolves lineup while throwing only 36 pitches.
Frederick Keys 7, Salem (Red Sox) 1
Tucker Nathan drove in three runs for the Keys, who collected nine hits and stole four bases against Salem on Wednesday night. They scored early and they scored late too. That's a good way to do it. Keys starting pitcher Jarret Miller struck out six batters in five innings of work, though he also allowed three walks. Salem didn't score its run until a ninth inning solo home run by Mario Martinez off of Nik Nowottnick, who has a 1.69 ERA on the season.
Savannah (Mets) 7, Delmarva Shorebirds 5
A rough day at the office for Shorebirds reliever Nick Cunningham, who gave up four runs in only a third of an inning when he attempted to pitch the seventh. With an 11.88 ERA for the season, he's had a few of those by now. That's tough.
Offensively, Delmarva collected nine hits, only one of which was for extra bases. Conor Bierfeldt had two singles and drove in two runs. Alex Murphy and Riley Palmer also had multi-hit games.
