The Delmarva Shorebirds edged out the Lakewood BlueClaws in the series finale, notching a tight 4-2 victory for a series win. The Shorebirds (57-60) improved to 32-27 at Arthur W. Perdue Stadium this season with another win in front of the home crowd.

John Means and Tyler Viza squared off in a battle of top-10 ERAs in the South Atlantic League. Means allowed a run to Lakewood in the third on a two-out RBI single by Damek Tomscha. The Shorebirds’ starter buckled down and did not surrender any more runs in his five innings of work.

The BlueClaws’ starter suffered some bad luck in the bottom half of the third. Delmarva scored three runs on six singles and an error, with only one hard hit line drive in the frame. The Shorebirds took advantage of three infield singles, including run-scoring swinging bunts by Yermin Mercedes and Elier Leyva.

Delmarva added to their lead in the fifth, building a 4-1 advantage. Cam Kneeland laced a leadoff double, his 22nd two-bagger of the season, most on the team. Mercedes lifted a sacrifice fly to right field, though Herlis Rodriguez dropped the catch, so Kneeland scored without a contest.

Lakewood tightened the game with a run in the seventh, but Tanner Scott minimized the damage. A single and two walks loaded the bases with no outs. Scott induced a double play grounder to allow just one run in the frame, holding onto a 4-2 lead.

Max Schuh recorded the final six outs for the first save of his professional career. John Means tallied his ninth win, retaking the Shorebirds’ team lead. Means also dropped his ERA to 3.50, eighth-best in the league. Viza dropped to 4-8 with another tough luck loss for Lakewood.

Frederick Keys News Release

For Immediate Release: August 16, 2015



FREDERICK, Md. –The Carolina Mudcats used three home runs and another outstanding start from Seth Webster to defeat the Frederick Keys 6-1 on Sunday afternoon at Nymeo Field. With the loss Frederick saw its four game winning streak come to a close, while the club was denied a three-game sweep. In spite of the setback, the Keys conclude their homestand with a 4-2 record.

Frederick’s lone run came against Webster (8-6) in the bottom of the second. After Yaisel Mederos opened the inning with a single, he advanced to third on a sacrifice bunt and an error by Reed Harper and a single by Anthony Caronia. Later in the frame, Mederos would come home on a bounce out by Jay Gonzalez.

The run would be unearned against Webster, as the right-hander tossed seven innings and scattered six hits. He struck out eight and did not walk a batter. Since joining the Muddies rotation, Webster has turned in 12 quality starts and has pitched seven innings or more 10 times.

Keys starter Luis Gonzalez stranded six on base through the first three innings, but would give up two runs in the fourth. Reed Harper opened the inning with a solo home run to tie the game, while Johan Camargo collected his first of three hits two batters later with a single to left. He moved up to third on an errant pickoff toss by Gonzalez and scored on a sac-fly by Keith Curcio.

Working five innings, Gonzalez (5-10) allowed two runs (one earned) on six hits to go with a walk and five strikeouts. It was the left-hander’s third loss in his last four starts.

Carolina plated runs in the sixth, seventh and eighth innings to close out their scoring. A two-run homer by Camargo highlighted things, while Curcio connected on his third longball of the season in the eighth. In the seventh, Dustin Peterson, Jacob Schrader and Joseph Odom all singled to account for the frame’s only run. The three longballs allowed by Keys arms tied a season-high.
