Scott Dominates in Rain Shortened Win


Baysox Grab 3-1 Win in Six Inning Rain Shortened Game


Tanner Scott faced the minimum in three dominant innings and the Baysox scored three first inning runs before the rains came in a 3-1 win in Akron Sunday night. The game was halted after a driving rain storm hit with one out in the top of the sixth inning.


Scott was dialed in, pitching just minutes from his childhood home, as he faced the minimum in three scoreless innings. He allowed a leadoff single to Luigi Rodriguez but then got a double play ball following. Scott retired the final eight batters faced, striking out four.


And the Baysox had already given him a lead. The first four Baysox batters reached base to open the game. Jay Gonzalez walked in a five pitch at bat to open the game. The Baysox then got three consecutive singles. DJ Stewart and Garabez Rosa each drove home runs. Later on a tapper in front of the plate, Stewart raced home from third after the throw to first base to score the third run of the inning.


Miguel Castro (2-0) came on to work the final two innings for the win. He left a runner stranded at third with one down in the fifth inning with back to back strikeouts to end the frame.


The game started 45 minutes late due to rain. The win is a fourth in the last five games for the Baysox.

Frederick Keys News Release


For Immediate Release: May 28, 2017





FREDERICK, MD –The Buies Creek Astros (29-22) received 6.2 innings of one-hit baseball from Hector Perez en route to a 4-0 win over the Frederick Keys (24-25) on Sunday night at Nymeo Field. Tying a season-low with two hits, the Keys never put a runner in scoring position, while the duo of Perez and Carlos Sierra faced only one over the minimum for the game.


Coming off an outing against Down East where he allowed eight runs in five innings, Perez (3-2) got back on track Sunday. Seeing the minimum over 6.2 innings, the Astros righty earned the win while giving up just one hit and striking out nine. He threw 86 pitches (57 strikes). An Austin Hays single in the fourth was Perez’s lone blemish.


Reid Love turned in a quality start for the Keys, but was tagged with his first loss. Pitching six innings, the former East Carolina product allowed three runs on eight hits. Love (1-1) struck out six and did not walk a batter. It was the first quality start by a Keys pitcher since last Friday, when Cristian Alvarado tossed 6.1 innings of two-run baseball against the Blue Rocks.


Buies Creek got on the board in the fifth inning. Pat Porter opened the frame with a double and moved to third on a base hit by Jake Rogers. From there, Love got Spencer Johnson to flyout, but Anibal Sierra singled up the middle to score a pair.


The visitors added single markers in the sixth and seventh innings. After a pair of singles put runners at the corners, Porter singled in Ryne Birk, while an RBI double by Birk in the seventh brought in Myles Straw.


Sierra closed things out for the Astros, tossing the final 2.1 innings to go with one strikeout. With the victory, Buies Creek ended a season-worst four game losing streak.

Seabrooke pitches five strong innings in 5-1 loss

LAKEWOOD, NJ - The Delmarva Shorebirds failed to lock down their first series win in a month, falling 5-1 to the Lakewood BlueClaws on Sunday night at FirstEnergy Park to split a four-game series.

Nick Fanti (4-0) earned the win for the BlueClaws (29-21) with a typically sterling start, allowing one run on five hits in six innings, walking none and striking out nine. He has given up three earned runs in his last 24.2 innings on the hill. Travis Seabrooke (2-4) took the loss for the Shorebirds (19-29) after giving up two runs (one earned) on four hits in five innings. He pitched earlier in the series, notching an inning and earning the win on Thursday night.

Will Hibbs earned the save with three scoreless innings to finish the game. He hasn’t given up a run in 27 innings this season.

Lakewood struck for an early lead in the first inning. Raul Rivas hit a one-out ground-rule double to right and advanced to third on a groundout. A passed ball through catcher Jerry McClanahan allowed Rivas to scamper home with the opening run and a 1-0 BlueClaws lead.

Delmarva got that run back in the top of the second. Preston Palmeiro and Gerrion Grim led off with back-to-back singles. After a flyout, McClanahan made up for the passed ball with a soft liner down the left field line. Palmeiro scored and Grim moved up to third on the McClanahan game-tying double. The Shorebirds had two chances to take the lead with second and third and one out, but Fanti got Tanner Kirk to fly out to shallow center and struck out Cole Billingsley to end the threat.

Cord Sandberg got hit by a pitch with one out in the bottom of the second. Edgar Cabral followed by hitting a tailor-made double play grounder to second, but Kirk couldn’t handle the hop and could only get the out at first. Luke Williams took advantage of the extra out by belting a double to right, scoring Sandberg to make it 2-1.

Strong pitching kept it at 2-1 until the bottom of the seventh when Lakewood broke through for insurance. Williams started the rally with a one-out single and then stole second base after a flyout. Arquimedez Gamboa drew a walk to put two on. Rivas then hit a line drive to right for a single, scoring Williams to make it 3-1. Both Gamboa and Rivas moved up on the play on an overthrow from Grim in left. Mickey Moniak followed with a seeing-eye double to left center, scoring both runners and making it a three-spot in the inning.

Palmeiro had two of the five hits for the Shorebirds, finishing 2-for-4 with a run. McClanahan’s double was his second of the season and second RBI. Billingsley and Grim had the other two hits for Delmarva.

Rivas and Williams each had two hits, a double, and an RBI for the BlueClaws, combining for three of the five runs. Four of Lakewood’s seven hits went for extra bases.
