Norfolk 6, Rochester 8
Tyler Wilson might just start Tuesday’s game for the Orioles, so tonight was always going to be a short start. I don’t think the brass had 1.2 IP while surrendering four runs on six hits in mind, though.
Bowie 11, Richmond 13
Starter Brandon Barker went just 3.1 IP and got charged with seven runs (all earned) on eight hits, one walk and just two strikeouts. Parker Bridewell didn’t do much better later in the game, managing just two outs while giving up four runs (three earned) on four hits and a walk. Chance Sisco had himself a night, going 4-for-6 with 2 RBI.
Frederick 8, Myrtle Beach 7
It took a few extra frames, but the Keys sent the home crowd unhappy with the win. With the win, the orange and black are five games over .500 for the first time all year. In the 11th inning, Wynston Sawyer sliced a one-out double to right field against Tommy Thorpe (4-6). Rodriguez was intentionally walked, while Cam Kneeland walked to load the bases. Nomar Reyes grounded a ball to first base that was fielded by Yasiel Balaguert. The first baseman went to second for the first out, but the relay throw was wild to score Sawyer. On the same play, Rodriguez was thrown out at home trying for another run.
Delmarva 3, August 0
The ‘Birds took their four straight with the rain-delayed win over Augusta. Yermin Mercedes hit his 11th home run in the fifth inning and Austin Anderson belted his first triple of the year in the top of the seventh to put the Shorebirds out front 3-0. But the hero of the night was reliever Dariel Delgado. Delgado (1-0) was called upon to back up Reid Love after the lengthy delay. Delgado fired 4.2 scoreless frames with one walk and five strikeouts.
Aberdeen 4, Batavia 2
The IronBirds scored all of the runs they would need in the third inning, striking four times. The first run scored on an errant pickoff throw that allowed the IronBirds to take a 1-0 lead, followed by a two run double by Alejandro Juvier to make it 3-0. Jaylen Ferguson plated the final run with a single, giving the IronBirds a 4-0 advantage. CF Ryan McKenna went 2-for-4 and C Jerry McClanahan did as well. 2016 first round draft pick Cory Sedlock gave up just one run in 3.0 IP, surrendering three hits and one walk against two strikeouts. Gotta work on that WHIP, kid.
