Frederick Keys News Release

For Immediate Release: May 7, 2015



FREDERICK, Md.-The Frederick Keys earned their fifth walk-off victory of the season in game one, while Winston-Salem used a nine-run seventh to take the second contest in Thursday’s quasi-doubleheader at Nymeo Field. With the split the Keys win their fourth straight home series, and move to 15-13 on the season. Trey Mancini played the hero in game one, with a 10th inning single off Michael Ynoa to lift Frederick to a 7-6 win, while the Dash earned a 14-2 triumph in the finale.

After Wednesday’s game was suspended in the bottom of the fifth inning, the two sides picked things up at 11 a.m. with the Dash ahead 3-2. That score would not hold for long though, as the orange and black sent eight men to bat against Jose Brito. After Jeff Kemp walked with one out Brenden Webb provided the big blow with a two-run homer to right. It was his second of the game (he hit his first the inning prior off Andre Wheeler) and his first multi-homer game since August 8, 2012 when he was a member of the Low-A Delmarva Shorebirds. Webb finished the game 3-for-4 with three RBIs and three runs scored, all setting or tying season-highs.

In the seventh, Frederick plated two more off Brad Goldberg. With Webb at second, Anthony Caronia singled his teammate home and moved to second on an error by Keenyn Walker. He later came across on a ground-rule double by Johnny Ruettiger.

Down 6-3, the Dash fought back in the ninth to force extra-innings. Walker earned a free pass against Jon Keller and advanced to third on a steal and an error. Adam Engel then walked to put runners at the corners for Jake Peter, who singled in Walker. The Keys righty would strike out Trey Michalczewski for the second out, but a steal by Peter put two in scoring position for Keon Barnum, who smacked Keller’s first pitch to center, to even the count at six.

Frederick stranded men at first in second in their last regulation at-bats to force extra-frames. Dennis Torres pitched a clean 10th, before the Keys pushed across the winning run with two outs in the home-half of the inning. Following singles by Kemp and Dosch, Mancini lined Ynoa’s 0-2 pitch to left to give the Keys their 15th win. Torres (2-1) picked up the victory, striking out one and allowing one hit in his lone inning of work, while Ynoa (0-1) was tagged with his first loss giving up the run as well as four hits in 1.2 stanzas.

Things took an ugly turn in game two, as the Dash sent 13 men to bat in the seventh inning and plated nine runs, the most the Keys pitching staff has allowed in an inning this year. With two on base, Chris Jacobs started the scoring with a double off Dylan Rheault. Nick Basto added an RBI single of his own to plate Keon Barnum from third, while Jacobs scored on a fielder’s choice by Cleuluis Rondon. A single and a walk then loaded the bags. All would come around to score, along with three additional runs after two-RBI hits by Engel (single), Michalczewski (double) and Barnum (homer).

Winston-Salem grabbed the lead for good after a three-run sixth, which included a pair of errors by Gregory Lorenzo in center. The Keys only two markers came in the fourth on a double by Mancini and back-to-back RBI singles by Anthony Hewitt and Caronia.

Nik Nowottnick (1-1) suffered the loss, giving up three runs (two earned) on four hits over one-plus innings. Dash starter Matt Heidenreich (5-0) became the first Carolina League pitcher to five wins, tossing six innings of two-run baseball.

ALISBURY, Md. -- The Delmarva Shorebirds rode incredible pitching performances from Bennett Parry, Derrick Bleeker and Donnie Hart to a 4-0 win over the Asheville Tourists at Arthur W. Perdue Stadium on Thursday night.

Parry earned his second win of the season after allowing just two hits in six innings of shutout ball. After stranding runners on third base in each of the first two innings, Parry retired 12 of the final 13 batters he faced and finished the night with six strikeouts and one walk. He now boasts an ERA of 2.36 for the season and has 21 strikeouts.

The Shorebirds’ offense also shined throughout the night, collecting 14 total hits with eight of nine batters reaching base safely. Despite accumulating seven hits in the first three innings, the ‘Birds couldn’t break through in the early innings. Delmarva finally got on the board in the fourth inning, when an Elier Leyva double set up an RBI single by Jared Breen.

Delmarva tacked on another run in the bottom of the sixth when Jamill Moquete doubled home Riley Palmer. Breen later came through again by knocking in two more insurance runs on a clutch single with two outs in the bottom of the eighth.

Breen finished the night with three hits to go with his three RBIs, pushing his season average to .320. Leyva also had a stellar night at the plate, knocking two more doubles to give him six two-baggers in his last four games.

The bullpen did its part to preserve the victory, as Derrick Bleeker threw two perfect innings with a strikeout while Donnie Hart closed out the game with a clean ninth. Hart has yet to allow a run in 10 appearances during the 2015 season.
