Pawtucket Red Sox 4, Norfolk Tides 3
Not a great game here for the Norfolk offensive efforts as the lineup combined for just six hits. They scored three runs in the last two frames, overall a pretty rough day for the Orioles AAA affiliate.
Nobody had a multi-hit game — Austin Wynns was the top performer with a 1-4 effort with a pair of RBI and a run scored.
Starter Asher Wojciechowski did have a solid outing on the mound, working six full innings. He allowed just three hits and struck out five in a two-run start.
Richmond Flying Squirrels 7, Bowie Baysox 6
It was a good night for starter Brian Gonzalez. He pitched five innings of one-run baseball, allowing five hits and striking out seven. He needed a good outing and he certainly got one on Thursday.
Unfortunately for the Baysox, a last-inning two-RBI single would give Richmond the win.
Among the notable performers — Anthony Santander went 2-5 with a double and a run scored and Anderson Feliz and Martin Cervenka both went yard. 2017 standout Aderlin Rodriguez
Frederick Keys 5, Wilmington Blue Rocks 2
Only five hits for the Keys offense, but they got the ones that counted. Designated hitter Wilson Garcia had the big hit of the night, a double that ended up scoring three runs to put the Keys ahead and allow them to stay there. Ryan McKenna, who led off and played center, went 2-3 with a pair of walks and a run scored. Not a bad night at all.
On the mound, can we get continued shoutouts for Michael Baumann? All this guy does is perform. He went six strong innings, working around jams to allow just one run. Remember, he’s from the same college as Austin Hays. Whoever scouted those two might deserve a raise here in the near future.
