Norfolk Tides 5, Buffalo Bisons 4
Andy Oliver had to save the day for Tyler Wilson, but the Tides managed to pick up a Wednesday matinee win. Wilson lasted just 3.2 innings, allowing six hits and two earned before yielding to Oliver. The 29-year-old veteran tossed three frames of scoreless ball, surrendering just one hit and officially picking up the win.
Corbin Joseph notched a 2-4 with a home run and two RBI. Dariel Alvarez boosted his Norfolk season average to .280 with a double, while Mike Yastrzemski singled and walked twice.
The Tides win now takes them to 37-61… which, well is better than 36-62.
Binghamton Mets 8, Bowie Baysox 4
Starter Jason Garcia was cruising to a potential win before the fifth inning rolled around. The Mets put up a seven spot, absolutely crushing Garcia’s chance at a win. He’d leave after getting just one out in the frame, giving the bullpen some extra work. Parker Bridwell, Bobby Bundy and Michael Zouzalik each worked scoreless innings.
It was a quiet overall performance for the Baysox bats despite putting up four runs. Sharlon Schoop tripled in his 1-5, Joey Terdoslavich picked up a 2-5 with a double and leadoff man Drew Dosch knocked two singles and a pair of walks.
Chance Sisco reached base twice with a single and a free base - he’s now hitting .321 and heating up in potential trade talks.
Hickory Crawdads 2, Delmarva Shorebirds 0
The offense decided not to show up to the ballpark in Delmarva on Wednesday, with everyone but Randolph Gassaway and leadoff man Cedric Mullins going hitless. Gassaway went 2-3 with a double and Mullins singled, but that was all on the night for the Shorebirds.
Starter Reid Love fanned six over five and two thirds, while 23-year-old righty Mike Burke threw a perfect 2.1 innings with four strikeouts.
