Another slow night. Kingsport and the Lucies were both rained out, and Brooklyn’s bats seemed to be water-logged. For what it’s worth, the oft-discussed Matt Harvey threw two scoreless innings in the Triple A All Star Game. Let’s get to it….
Savannah 5, Delmarva 3
Jacob DeGrom went five strong innings, allowing just two runs (one earned) on two hits, two walks and a hit batsman while striking out five. Catcher Xorge Carillo went 2 for 4 with a two run homer and three RBI’s on the night. And our old pal Endy was 1 for 4 with a run and an RBI for the Shorebirds. Aderlin Rodriguez went 0 for 4, but did manage to score a run
Connecticut 1, Brooklyn 0
The Cyclones hitting woes continue, as they managed just four hits – which creates a nice symmetry since their losing streak is now at four as well. Julian Hilario stated and deserved a better fate (6IP, 1R, 6H, 0BB, 5K). Phillip Evans and Kevin Plawecki each had a hit in four at bats, and 3B Alexander Sanchez went 2 for 3.
