Norfolk 2, Syracuse 6
T.J. McFarland experiment at starter hit a curious bump last night as he lasted just 1 inning while surrendering 2 runs. The Norfolk Tides release about the game simply notes he had to exit after 1 inning of work, with no explanation. Hmm... The Tides threatened briefly in the 6th and made the score 3-2 Chiefs, who then promptly put 3 more runs on the board in the 7th off reliever Zach Phillips. Christian Walker went 1 for 4 while Trey Mancini went hitless in 4 ABS. No Tides player had more than 1 hit.
Bowie 2, Harrisburg 4
Technically, Jayson Aquino had a Quality Start, but giving up 3 runs on 8 hits and 2 walks against 2 strikeouts in 6.0 IP stretches the definition considerably. The Baysox actually managed 2 runs (and 2 walks!) off uber-prospect Lucas Giolito, although he did notch 5 Ks in just 5.0 IP of work. Three relievers then kept the Baysox hitless the final 4 innings. The 5 hits in the game by the Baysox came off the bats of 5 different players, and a double by Adrian Marin was the only extra-base hit of the night for them.
Frederick 4, Potomac 3
Lucas Long kept the Camden Chatters in attendance happy as he notched the win for the Keys, pitching 7 innings and giving up just 2 runs (and only 1 earned) on 6 hits, no walks and 3 strikeouts. Right fielder Cam Kneeland cut down the potential tying run with a catch and throw to home, where Raudy Reed was tagged out. Erick Salcedo had his first home run of the season in the third inning.
Delmarva 1, Lakewood 2
The awesomeness of Christian Turnipseed's name didn't match his pitching last night, as the Shorebirds closer surrendered a two-run game winning homer to Jan Hernandez as Lakewood walked off with the win. Shorebirds' starter Cristian Alvarado pitched 6 innings with just 74 pitches and struck out seven while only allowing 3 hits and no runs.
