Baysox Beat Thunder, Lightning in Win

Bowie, Md. – The Baysox battled through some nasty weather in a rain-shortened seven inning 5-3 win over the Trenton Thunder Saturday night. The game was called after the top of the seventh inning due to severe weather in the area.

Orioles RHP Miguel Gonzalez made the start of the Baysox on a MLB Rehab Assignment. He threw five innings and allowed two runs on four hits while striking out four and walking one in the win. He became the first Orioles pitcher in three tries to earn a win with the Baysox in a rehab start.

He was joined by Orioles teammate second baseman Jonathan Schoop who batted leadoff for the Baysox also on a rehab assignment. He went 0-for-4 with a strikeout.

Trenton struck quickly in the top of the first inning against Gonzalez. Tony Renda hit a one-out double to third base and Aaron Judge followed with a two-out home run to left-center field to give the Thunder a 2-0 lead.

With bad weather approaching, the Baysox came back to take the lead in the bottom of the fourth inning against Trenton starter Miguel Sulbaran. Brandon Snyder drew a lead-off walk and moved to third base on a Mike Yastrzemski double to left field. Glynn Davis followed with a double to left field that plated both runners. David Freitas singled to left field to move Davis to third base where he scored on a Drew Dosch single to left field to give Bowie a 3-2 lead.

The Baysox added a pair of insurance runs in the bottom of the fifth inning. With one out, Snyder doubled to left-center field and moved to third base on a Mancini single to left field. Yastrzemski brought both runners home with another double down the right field line to make the score 5-2.

Reliever Ashur Tolliver pitched two scoreless innings in relief to earn his first save of the season. He allowed three hits while walking two batters and striking out three. Sulbaran took the loss for Trenton, throwing 4.1 innings and allowing five runs on eight hits while striking out three and walking two.

FREDERICK, Md.-The Frederick Keys and the Wilmington Blue Rocks were suspended after four innings on Saturday night at Nymeo Field. At the time the game was halted, the Blue Rocks had a 1-0 lead. Saturday’s suspended game will be completed in its entirety on Sunday starting at 1:00 p.m. Sunday’s regularly scheduled game will follow and will be seven innings in length. Gates for the quasi-twinbill open at noon.

Orioles left-hander, Wei-Yin Chen, pitched the first three innings for the Keys and allowed only one hit, a two-out double to Frank Schwindel in the first. Over three scoreless frames, the Taiwan native struck out two and did not walk a batter. He threw 35 pitches, 25 for strikes.

In front of a sold out crowd of 11,000 fans, the Mud Hens cruised to their third straight victory over the Norfolk Tides with a 4-2 win. On Superhero night at the ballpark, Tim Melville gave the Hens a super good outing on the mound to earn his third victory of the season. Despite trailing 2-0 early in the game, Toledo was able to score four unanswered runs to comeback against the Tides.

Melville gave up runs in the first and third innings, but settled in quite nicely. In his six innings of work, he allowed only two runs on five hits while striking out three Norfolk hitters.

With two outs in the third inning, Xavier Avery singled up the middle for the Hens' first hit of the night. Dixon Machado followed by pulling the first pitch from Tides' pitcher and former Mud Hen Pat McCoy down the left field line to get Toledo on the board. Jefry Marte added to the two out rally by doubling to score Machado and tie the game at two.

In the fourth, Mike Hessman turned a patient plate appearance into a walk to lead off the inning. Steven Moya followed with a walk, but a Daniel Fields double play erased him on the bases. Again, two out hitting proved huge for the Mud Hens as Brendan Harris lifted a double to the gap in right field to score Hessman and give Toledo a 3-2 lead.

Angel Nesbitt relieved Melville in the seventh inning, and threw two scoreless innings to keep Norfolk from tying the game. In the bottom of the eighth, Moya hit a bases loaded single to give Toledo an insurance run. Bruce Rondon took over on the hill in the ninth, and earned his first save of the season by cruising through the Tides' hitters to secure the Hens' third victory in a row.
