Wednesday night was a quiet night for the Baby Bombers. Not only did two teams have an off day, but the two remaining teams who did play, both lost to their opponents. Here are the recaps.
Scranton/Wilkes-Barres RailRiders (32-31) were idle.
A day off is always nice to have after losing a game the night before. The RailRiders will look to get back into the win column as they are set to face off against the Columbus Clippers on Thursday at 7:05 PM. Starting pitchers are still waiting to be announced.
Trenton Thunder (33-32) lost to Richmond Flying Squirrels (37-26) 10-4.
The Thunder did not have one of their best games. Starting pitcher Graham Stoneburner gave up two runs in the top of the 1st, but the Thunder offense got him back in the game as they drove in three runs in the bottom of the first to take back the lead. After the Flying Squirrels put up a three spot in the top of the second, they took control of the game from there. Stoneburner lasted just five innings, giving up 5 ER on 10 hits and walking two while striking out one. Two of the ten hits were home runs. The Flying Squirrels, specifically SS Matt Duffy, had an extremely productive night at the plate. Duffy went 4-for-5, and drove in half of the teams runs. He is now batting an impressive .351.
Tampa Yankees (34-31) were idle.
The Tampa Yankees had a night off as well. It seems like they will make up for lost time, as a double header is scheduled for today. The first game will start at 5:00 PM. Colin Kleven will get the ball for the T-Yankees, as the opposing pitcher is to be announced. The starting pitchers for the second game of the day are to be determined as well.
Charleston RiverDogs (30-36) lost to Greenville Drive (31-34) 6-3.
The RiverDogs lost a close game, and three runs wasn’t enough. Starting pitcher Caleb Smith didn’t have his best outing, as his performance was cut short at 3.1 innings, giving up 4 ER on four hits and walking four while striking out one. LF Michael O’Neill and RF Dustin Fowler had great nights at the plate, each going 2-for-4 and driving in one run a piece. The Drive had hits scattered throughout the lineup, having numerous players contribute to the six runs being scored. The RiverDogs are seeking a victory tomorrow, as they are set to face the Lexington Legends Thursday at 7:05 PM.
