Norfolk 1, Indianapolis 2 (F/12)
The Tides lost in 12 innings last night, wasting some great pitching. Starter Ariel Miranda went 7.0 IP with just one run, four hits and no walks against five strikeouts. Oliver Drake (2.0 IP), Ashur Tolliver (1.0 IP) and Pedro Beato (1.0 IP) each did their jobs, while final reliever Edgar Olmos walked three while getting just one out before the winning run scored. The offense did very little, as Mike “Lil’ Yaz” Yastrzemski had three hits and Christian Walker with his two were the only Tides batters to have more than one hit in a game where every starter had at least five plat appearances.
Bowie 1, Akron 3
Bowie’s bats didn’t do much better, as the Baysox managed only six base runners in nine innings. Starter David Hess gave up three runs in 5.0 IP, and walked three with a home run allowed against just two strikeouts. Drew Dorsch had two hits for the Baysox while four of them took an 0-for-4 for the night.
Frederick 2, Wilmington 0 (completion of rain-delayed game)
This game had been halted one pitch into the seventh inning Thursday, and the Keys started the night with a 2-0 lead thanks to a Erick Salcedo double. Jon Keller had started the game and pitched three scoreless, and Ivan Hernandez followed with three scoreless of his own to pick up the win.
Frederick 8, Wilmington 9
Wilmington built a four run lead by the fourth inning, and only a three-run 9th inning rally made this game any semblance of being close. Starter Lucas Long gave up four runs (only two were earned) and the 9th inning rally took him off the hook for the loss. That went to Austin Urban. Cameron Kneeland scored four runs.
Delmarva 3, West Virginia 1 (F/7)
Cristian Alvarado pitched six innings in the first game with just one run and four hits against him. Christian Turnipseed earned his 15th save. Ryan Mountcastle went 2-four-4, and RF Natanael Delgado went 2-for3.
Delmarva 5, West Virginia 2 (F/7)
In Game Two, Dariel Delgado was outstanding for Delmarva in his spot start. He hurled just 45 pitches over four 1-hit frames, giving up one unearned run. Jay Flaa got the win while giving up two unearned runs. So, over 14 innings yesterday, Delmarva pitching gave up just one earned run. Not a bad day.
Aberdeen 1, Mahoning Valley 7 (F/7)
2016 first-round draft pick Cody Sedlock started, giving up two runs, two walks and one hit (a home run) against four strikeouts. Zach Muckenhirn followed and didn’t help matters at all, giving up four runs on six hits in just 2.1 IP.
Aberdeen 6, Mahoning Valley 2 (F/7)
The IronBirds put up five runs in the third inning, and cruised to a 6-2 win to break their five game losing streak. Starter Lucas Humpal only went 1.2 IP, giving up two runs on five hits and two walks, but Cody Dube came in and pitched 3.1 scoreless to secure the win.
