Bierfeldt Leads Way in Walk-Off Win

Shorebirds win 4-3 on bases-loaded walk in ninth

SALISBURY, Md. -- The Delmarva Shorebirds won in walk-off fashion in Monday’s series opener with the Lakewood BlueClaws, 4-3. Conor Bierfeldt played hero for Delmarva with a game-tying home run in the eighth and the game-winning bases-loaded walk in the ninth.

Delmarva climbed out to an early lead, only to see it erased by Lakewood. Jomar Reyes and Jay Gonzalez each contributed RBI singles for a 2-0 advantage after two innings.

The middle of the order had success for Lakewood. Deivi Grullon roped an RBI single in the fourth inning to make it 2-1. Delmarva’s defense turned three double plays to help out starter John Means in the early frames. In the sixth, Grullon tied the game with an RBI groundout, and Jiandido Tromp hooked a two-out RBI double to put the BlueClaws in front, 3-2.

Conor Bierfeldt rose to the occasion in the later stages of the game. In the eighth inning, Bierfeldt smacked the first pitch from Will Morris over the left field fence for a game-tying solo home run. The long ball was Bierfeldt’s fifth home run of the season, leading the Shorebirds.

The trio of Matt Trowbridge, Zeke McGranahan and Donnie Hart kept Lakewood off the board, giving Delmarva a chance for a walk-off win in the ninth. Jared Breen reached on an infield single to put the winning run aboard. Jonah Heim drew a walk, and Gonzalez pushed the runners over with a sacrifice bunt. After an intentional walk to Steve Wilkerson, Bierfeldt drew another walk to force in the winning run.

Monday was Delmarva’s first walk-off victory of the season. Bierfeldt added to his league-leading RBI total with two more runs driven in, the tying and winning runs. Bierfeldt now has 34 RBIs in 33 games played so far this season.

Donnie Hart earned his first win of the year, extending his scoreless streak to 10 2/3 innings to start the season. Austin Davis took the loss for Lakewood, having issued the game-winning walk in the ninth.

Steve Clevenger homered as part of a three-hit night, powering the Tides to a 9-3 win at Louisville Monday night.

Clevenger singled twice and belted a solo shot off of Josh Smith (0-1) in the fifth inning to help the Tides take the opener of a three-game set. The three-hit game extended Clevenger's hitting streak to eight games, tied with Christian Walker for the longest by a Tides player this season.

Norfolk set a season-high with 15 hits in the contest, as eight of nine batters in the lineup collected a base hit. Chris Parmelee had three hits to up his average to .347, while Everth Cabrera and Nolan Reimold each added two hits and an RBI.

Chris Jones (1-1) was the beneficiary of the offensive outburst, although he didn't need much help. Jones earned his first win of the season as he allowed three runs on five hits over a season-high seven innings of work. He walked three and struck out five while throwing 62 of his 93 pitches for strikes
