Doubleheader Split in Greensboro

Comeback win in Game 1, shutout defeat in Game 2

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- The Delmarva Shorebirds got back into the win column with a comeback victory in Greensboro, but the Grasshoppers evened the score with a 5-0 shutout in the nightcap.

The doubleheader began promising with a pitchers’ duel between Brian Gonzalez of Delmarva and Jose Adames for Greensboro. Neither starter allowed a run until the sixth inning when Arturo Rodriguez delivered a two-out RBI single for 1-0 Hoppers lead. Gonzalez finished with one run allowed on three hits in six innings, his first quality start with Delmarva.

As they have done several times this year, Delmarva battled back in their final at-bat. Jay Gonzalez and Steve Wilkerson set the table with a walk and single to put the tying run at third base. Alex Murphy delivered in the clutch with an RBI single to right field to tie the game.

After a strikeout and wild pitch, Greensboro intentionally walked Jomar Reyes to load the bases. Riley Palmer made Greensboro pay with a go-ahead RBI single to left field, taking a 2-1 lead. Elier Leyva drove home another run on a groundout, establishing a 3-1 advantage.

Donnie Hart pitched a clean seventh inning for his league-best eighth save of the year. Gonzalez earned the win, his second of the season, while Sam Alvis took the loss in relief for Greensboro. The win snapped a five-game losing skid for Delmarva.

Game two did not have quite as much drama as Greensboro built an early lead and never looked back. The first five Grasshoppers reached base in the first inning off Dariel Delgado, making a spot start for Delmarva. Delgado wil well to limit the damage to two runs, stranding the bases loaded.

Austen Smith belted a two-run home run for Greensboro in the third inning, his eighth of the season and most in the South Atlantic League. The Grasshoppers added another in the fourth for a 5-0 lead.

The Shorebirds could not find success off Drew Steckenrider and Josh Hodges. The two Grasshopper pitchers stymied Delmarva for just one hit in the game two shutout.

Frederick Keys News Release

For Immediate Release: May 14, 2015



Lynchburg, Va.-The Frederick Keys were victimized by a big inning for the second straight day, as the Lynchburg Hillcats scored five times in the fourth to win Thursday ‘s rubber game 6-3 at City Stadium. In the inning, Lynchburg benefited from a pair of two-out errors, two walks and a hit-by-pitch as the home-team batted around for the second time in less than 24 hours. With the loss, Frederick finishes the roadtrip 3-4.

Making his first start in Lynchburg since he played for the Hillcats, Jarett Miller appeared to turn the corner after striking out the side in the third. However, Lynchburg had different thoughts. The right-hander walked the leadoff man and plunked Joe Sever two batters later to put a pair on base with one out. A second walk to Mike Papi loaded things up for Juan de la Cruz who brought in a run on a fielder’s choice.

Miller (2-1) looked like he might get out of the inning one batter later, as Ivan Castillo grounded a ball to Adrian Marin at short, but the Miami native mishandled it, allowing Sever to score. A second miscue would then allow Papi to come home as Miller made an errant pickoff toss to first. Luigi Rodriguez and Clint Frazier closed out the inning with a pair of RBI doubles to end Miller’s afternoon.

His second-shortest start of the season, Miller gave up six runs (two earned) on four hits over 3.2 innings. The right-hander walked three and struck out five.

Lynchburg got on the board in the second on a solo homer to left by Sever after the Keys plated a run off Hillcats starter Adam Plutko in the first. Tucker Nathans opened the game with a double, moved to second on a sac-bunt by Jeff Kemp and came home on a sac-fly by Drew Dosch. Frederick also added a run in the fifth on an RBI single by Gregory Lorenzo which scored Anthony Caronia from third.

The reigning Carolina League Pitcher of the Week, Plutko (3-2) picked up his third win and fourth straight quality start. In six innings, he surrendered two runs on six hits while he struck out six and did not walk a batter.

In the ninth, the Keys plated a run thanks to three singles and an error by Castillo at short, but Jeff Kemp flied out to left to end the game.

Zach Davies tossed six strong innings, but Norfolk was edged by Indianapolis 3-2 Thursday night.

Davies (1-2) allowed three runs on eight hits but took the loss as Norfolk dropped the first game of a seven-game trip. The 22-year-old walked two and struck out five but yielded a two-run double to Gorkys Hernandez in the fourth inning that proved to be the difference.

Norfolk out-hit Indianapolis 11-9 in the contest, but 10 of the 11 hits were singles. Julio Borbon doubled for Norfolk's lone extra-base hit and added two singles in the contest as he raised his average to .289 this season.

Dariel Alvarez an Chris Parmelee each had two hits apiece, while Christian Walker added an RBI single.

The 3-2 setback was Norfolk's 19th one-run game this season, a mark that is tied with Indianapolis for the most in Minor League Baseball.
