Toledo (Tigers) 5, Norfolk Tides 2
A four-run seventh inning was what really did in the Tides. Well, that and the fact that they left 11 men on base and went just 1-12 with RISP in the game.
Things went smoothly for starter Mike Wright until that seventh inning. Four of the seven hits he allowed, and both walks, came in the inning. Wright got the hook with the bases loaded and Vidal Nuno allowed two of the runners to score. It added up to a five runs, all earned kind of night for Wright. Oops.
Catcher Chance Sisco was 1-3 for the Tides, hitting his fifth home run of the season. Sisco also threw out the only Mud Hens runner who tried to take a base on him.
Erie (Tigers) 5, Bowie Baysox 2
The Baysox gave up three runs in the top of the first, scored two runs in the bottom of the inning, then didn’t score again. In fact, they didn’t get a hit again after the first inning, which is generally going to be a hard way to win a baseball game.
This was a Tanner Scott night. Scott was not able to finish his standard three innings, as he gave up the three first inning runs and took 46 pitches to get through just two innings. A three-run home run is what did most of the damage, though it didn’t help that Scott gave up three hits and two walks out of 11 batters faced.
Carolina (Brewers) 6, Frederick Keys 2
Not great to look in the box score on the day Cody Sedlock was pitching and see that the Keys gave up six runs. Only one was charged to Sedlock, though - but then again, he gave up eight hits and two walks in just 4.2 innings.
In all, the Keys were out-hit in the game, 14-8. They ended up leaving just five men on base and weren’t able to make much of their limited chances, going 1-7 with RISP.
Delmarva Shorebirds - postponed, rain
Aberdeen IronBirds 10, Brooklyn (Mets) 4
The IronBirds made the most of their 12 hits in this game, scoring runs in bunches: Two in a couple of innings and three in a couple of innings. Catcher Ben Breazeale hit a three-run homer, his fourth of the season. Third baseman Trevor Craport had a 4-5 night, while Mason McCoy went 3-5 in the game. All three of these guys are batting over .300 for the season.
