Norfolk was off today.
Bowie Baysox 4, Akron RubberDucks 2
A victory is victory, even one in which not a whole heck of a lot happened. Glynn Davis, Brandon Snyder and Sean Halton all doubled and Elih Villanueva went seven strong innings. Villanueva allowed two earned runs, walked none and struck out five.
Frederick Keys 7, Winston-Salem Dash 6 (1); Frederick Keys 2, Winston-Salem Dash 14 (2)
In the first game, Mitch Horacek struck out eleven and allowed a homer in 5.2 innings. Jimmy Yacabonis pitched his second straight scoreless outing, but has walked four and struck out five in those two appearances.Drew Dosch singled and walked twice. Dosch leads the Carolina League in AVG and is fourth in OBP. Brenden "Pops" Webb homered twice.
In the second game, Davis Hess turned in a solid, but short start. Hess struck out five and walked one in four innings. Unfortunately, Dylan Rheault was lit up for seven earned runs in .2 innings. He's allowed 20 earned runs in 17.2 innings this season. Tucker Nathans had an interesting day. The former indy leaguer doubled, tripled and pitched the final out.
Delmarva Shorebirds 4, Asheville Tourists 0
A combination of His Badness (if you're not into the whole brevity thing) Bennett Parry, Derrick Bleeker and Donnie Hart (who was very much in his element) held the Tourists to two hits. Parry also walked a batter and struck out six. Nice game for Jomar Reyes, who's currently hitting a solid .283. Reyes seems to always be hovering around there, but seems to have a weekly hit-freakout like tonight, when he was 3-4. At any rate, for an 18 year old in the South Atlantic League, he's acquitting himself quite well (second best wRC+ among 18 year olds in the League). Jamill Moquete also continued his recent hot streak with a couple hits to maintain his robust 1.000+ OPS.
