Dariel Alvarez's big night, Dingers and Assists for two lower level guys, a poor return to action for Hobgood.

Norfolk 7 Gwinnett (Atlanta) 5

A steady and balanced offensive attack led the Tides to victory in this one as every member of the lineup reached base, with only Paul Janish failing to record a hit, though he did walk twice. Dariel Alvarez went 3 for 4 with 3 runs scored and 2 SBs. Christian Walker drove in two with a 4th inning double.

Tyler Wilson gave up 3 ER over 6 innings of work, though it doesn't appear to have been too crisp of an outing for the UVA product as he only threw 47 of his 78 pitches for strikes. Oliver Drake recorded his 10th Save.

Binghamton (Mets) 8 Bowie 1

A rather close game was blown open when Binghamton put up 4 runs in the 8th. Perhaps Matt Hobgood needed another day or two before returning to action for the first time in nearly two months. After getting a line drive out to open the inning he proceeded to walk the next two batters before serving up an RBI double. He would be lifted after an intentional walk. All of his base runners would eventually score. And this report ain't encouraging:

Preceding Hobgood was this guy:

Kinda terrifying. He threw a clean 7th, recording 2 Ks, and has a 1.80 ERA over 30 IP so far this season.

The Baysox offense was uninspired, recording just 6 hits. Rossmel Perez had 3 of those. Mike Yaz drew two walks, but also got thrown out attempting to steal.

Myrtle Beach (Cubs) 7 Frederick 1 (Game 1)

Starter Chris Lee gave up 7 hits, 3 walks, 1 HBP, and 4 ER over 5 innings. The offense was quiet save for a Logan Uxa dinger. Moving on...

Myrtle Beach 1 Frederick 5 (Game 2)

The 'pen handled the pitching duties in this one as Dariel Delgado, Austin Urban, and Jimmy Yacabonis held the Pelicans to 1 run. Brenden Webb hit a dinger and earned an OF Assist, a stat line that warms my heart.

Hagerstown (Nats) 1 Delmarva 7

Another balanced offensive attack with batters 1 through 8 all recording basehits. TJ Olesczuk, in addition to having an impossible to spell name, matched Brenden Webb with a dinger and an Assist. Elier Leyva drove in 4 with a double and a SF. Jomar Reyes scored twice. John Means went 6 IP, 6 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 5 Ks and was rewarded with the Win.

Your Wednesday Probables are:

Norfolk: (RHP) Eddie Gamboa

Bowie: (LHP) Tim Berry

Frederick: (RHP) David Hess

Delmarva; (RHP) Lucas Long
