A Little Bit of This, Not so Much of That

This = Pitching. That = Hitting.

Las Vegas - Scheduled Day Off

Bowie 4 at New Hampshire 2

Joel Carreno allowed an untimely 2-run home run in the third after a passed ball and two wild pitches allowed the game's first run to score, and it would be enough to sink New Hampshire. Carreno had a reasonably strong outing overall, making it through 6 2/3 with 3 ER, 5 H, 3 BB and 8 K. Carreno's still walking too many batters, though in his last three he is 28/6 K/BB in 18.2 innings, albeit with 7 runs allowed. Ronald Uveido pitched 2 innings striking out 3, but gave up an insurance run on a solo home run in the 9th. The Fisher Cats actually outhit Bowie 10-7, but could only muster together 2 runs despite five walks and half their hits going for extra bases. They were 1/11 with runners in scoring position, and stranded 9. The bottom three of the order - Yan Gomes, Mark Sobolewski and John Tolisano all had singles and doubles, with Tolisano picking up a walk as well, while Darin Mastroianni doubled and walked twice while adding a steal. Gose and Hech were both Ofer, and Moises Sierra continued his fine season by homering and walking, scoring both of the team's two runs.

 Dunedin 4 at Brevard County 3

The scoring was done in this one after the fifth, as strong pen work allowed Dunedin to hang on. Deck McGuire went the minimum number of innings to still get the mythical pitcher win, which he did. He also struck out 10 and walked only 2, and 1 of the 3 runs he allowed was unearned. He gave up 5 hits, though two were of the long variety. Matt Wright, Dumas Garcia and Wes Etheridge closed things out, though they managed only 5 K's in 4 innings. Dunedin reached base safely only seven times all game, but made the most of their opportunities. Kevin Nolan hit a two-run home run, and the other runs scored on a wild pitch and a John Talley double and Sean Ochinko two-out single. Justin Jackson singled, doubled, walked and scored twice.

Lansing 3 at Quad Cities 4

The Lugnuts scored in the first, fourth and fifth, but Sam Strickland came in in the 6th with 2 on and 2 out to pick up Sean Nolin who had allowed a walk and a single (2 of the 3 baserunners he would allow on the day, to go with 7 strikeouts.) Strickland allowed the next four batters to reach, and that was all she wrote for the Nuts, who had one more baserunner all game, who was promptly erased in a double play. Matt Nuzzo had 2 of the 5 hits, including a home run, and Marcus Knecht singled and walked twice. Markus Brisker also singled, stole two bases and scored twice.
