FREDERICK, Md. –Anthony Caronia gave the Frederick Keys their third walk-off win of the season, with a single to center in the bottom of the 11th as the Keys defeated the Wilmington Blue Rocks 4-3 on Friday night at Nymeo Field. Batting with two outs and Brenden Webb at second, Caronia dunked a single in front of Dominique Taylor, whose throw home was just late. It was also Frederick’s third extra-inning win of the year, and makes the Keys the first Carolina League team to reach 10 wins.

Frederick tied the game at three in the tenth following singles by Drew Dosch and Austin Wynns and an RBI base knock by Adrian Marin. In the 11th, the Blue Rocks were stymied after Tucker Nathans gunned down Logan Moon trying to stretch a single into the double. Going to the bullpen, the Blue Rocks turned to Andrew Edwards who gave up a leadoff single to Brenden Webb. Johnny Ruettiger executed a successful sacrifice bunt, before Gregory Lorenzo flied out to center. Pinch-hitting for Jeff Kemp, Caronia fell behind against Edwards 0-2, but managed to make contact to send everyone home happy.

It did not take long for the Blue Rocks to score in extra innings as they took a 3-2 lead in the 10th inning. Dominique Taylor led off with a base hit to shortstop, went to second on a sacrifice bunt by Lopez and then advanced to third by a single from Frank Schwindel. With two outs, Evans came up big again for Wilmington with a ground ball up the middle to score Taylor. Evans accounted for all three Blue Rocks RBIs going 3-for-4 with a walk.

After Wilmington grabbed its first lead of the game in the eighth on an RBI single by Evans, Frederick fought back in the ninth to force extras. Wynns led off the inning with a single, but would be thrown out at second base after a failed sacrifice bunt by Marin. With Marin on first, Nathans singled to right advancing Marin to third base bringing up Webb, who was pinch-hitting for Anthony Hewitt. Webb came up clutch again for the club as he singled to left scoring Marin and tying the game at 2-2.

It was a pitcher’s duel for most of the game, but the Keys drew first blood in the fifth inning by plating a run to make it 1-0. Nathans got hit by a pitch to start the inning and advanced to second on a wild pitch. After a Lorenzo single, Kemp followed suit with a single up the middle to drive in Nathans to make it 1-0 Keys.

Keys starter Matt Taylor was very sharp over five shutout innings for the Keys, giving up just one hit and striking out six and was matched pitch-for-pitch by Luis Rico. Wilmington’s starter would post his first quality outing at Advanced-A allowing one run on six hits over six innings. Neither factored into the decision.

Williams Louico (2-1) earned the win for the Keys tossing a clean 11th inning.

SALISBURY, Md. -- Powered by a three-run home run by Jamill Moquete and a stout bullpen performance, the Delmarva Shorebirds extended their winning streak to four games with a 4-3 victory over the Greensboro Grasshoppers at Arthur W. Perdue Stadium on Friday night in front of 5,004 fans.

Trailing 2-0 in the bottom of the fourth, Delmarva got a rally going when Conor Bierfeldt and Jomar Reyes connected on back-to-back singles. Moquete then followed by launching a three-run home run over the left field fence to give the Shorebirds their first lead of the game. The dinger was Moquete’s second of the year, and the first home run by a Delmarva player at home during the 2015 season.

The middle of the Shorebirds order was the driving force behind the offense all night, as Moquete and Bierfeldt each had two hits while Reyes went 3-for-4 to push his average on the season up to .346.

The Grasshoppers quickly responded by tying the game in the top of the fifth on a sac fly from Arturo Rodriguez off of reliever Dariel Delgado. Delgado then rebounded by retiring six of the last seven batters he faced.

The Shorebirds took the lead for good in the bottom of the sixth on an odd play, as Bierfeld scored the go-ahead run on a wild pitch that allowed Riley Palmer to reach base following a strikeout.

Stefan Crichton then took the mound and kept any Greensboro rallies from materializing. He allowed just one baserunner in 2.2 innings to earn his first save of the season.

John Means returned to the rotation and tossed four innings as the starter, allowing two earned runs on five hits while striking out one batter.

NORFOLK, VA. - Tyler Wilson turned in a very strong outing, but three Charlotte pitchers combined to hold Norfolk to seven singles as the Knights washed out the Tides 4-1 Friday night at Harbor Park.

Wilson (1-2) was very impressive despite taking his first career loss in nine outings at Harbor Park. The 25-year-old UVA product allowed a second inning RBI single to Jason Coats but settled down to face just one batter over the minimum over his final four innings of work. He allowed five hits and a walk while striking out seven over six innings, lowering his ERA through four starts this year to 3.00.

In nine career starts at Harbor Park, Wilson is now 5-1 with a 1.74 ERA (11 ER, 57.0 IP).

Charlotte starter Kyle Drabek combined with Maikel Cleto (1-0) and Arcenio Leon on the victory, as the trio combined to issue one walk while striking out two. Leon worked the final two frames to earn his first save of the season.

Dan Black had a solo home run in the seventh inning for Charlotte, while the Knights plated a pair of insurance runs in the ninth off of Michael Bowden.

Christian Walker had two hits, a walk and a run scored to lead Norfolk’s offense, while Audry Perez added two singles – including an RBI knock in the ninth inning.
