Norfolk 2, Durham 1
Trey Mancini sent the Tides faithful home happy with a walk-off 2 RBI home run. It’s the fifth win in six games for the Tides. Andy Oliver started and threw 3.2 IP scoreless with just two hits allowed before rains delayed the game 44 minutes and ended his evening early.
Bowie 10, Altoona 8
The Baysox survived a five-run rally in the 8th inning to secure a win in a game they once led 10-3. John Means started and went 3.1 IP, and I’m assuming the 45 minute rain delay listed in the box score ended his evening early. Means gave up two runs on four hits and a walk without securing a strikeout. Chance Sisco went 2-for-3 and scored two runs while hitting a double.
Frederick 11, Salem 5
Frederick took a 5-5 tie and decided to bust it open in the 8th inning, scoring six times. Tanner Scott got the blown save (in the 8th???) and the win, because pitcher stats are weird. Franderlin Romero started and lasted 4.0 IP, giving up 3 runs on 6 hits and a home run. Conor Bierfeldt went 3-for-5 with a home run to lead the Keys offensively.
Delmarva 3, Hagerstown 4
The Shorebirds were up 3-2 with two outs and the bases empty, and managed to lose on a wild pitch. Three singles, a passed ball and the fateful wild pitch allowed the winning run to score. You gotta get all 27 outs, fellas. Ademar Rifaela and Ricardo Andujar each homered for the Shorebirds, with Yermin Mercedes' RBI single providing the other Delmarva run.
Aberdeen 8, Lowell 2 (F/6.5)
Cody Dube pitched 2.0 IP scoreless and I really want to add Brothers to the end of his name. C Stuart Levy went 3-for-3 an RBI and two runs scored. Cole Billingsley and Alejandro Juvier each had 3 RBI.
