The Peninsula Pilots endured a forgettable, wet Thursday night, falling 7-2 to the host Edenton Steamers in a game that was stopped because heavy rain made the field unplayable before the bottom of the fifth inning.
Old Dominion's Jordan Negrini belted a home run for the Pilots (4-5), but Liberty's Danny Grauer endured a rough outing for the loss: seven earned runs, four walks and nine hits in 3 2/3 innings.
Adam Kirsch batted 3-for-3 with two runs for the Steamers, and Laz Villa drove in three runs.
Here's the box score and play-by-play:
Jason Pridie, Zelous Wheeler and Travis Ishikawa each drove in two runs Thursday night as the Norfolk Tides beat the host Louisville Bats 9-3.
Tsuyoshi Wada gained his first victory of the season for the Tides, who have taken two of three in the series. Wheeler batted 2-for-5 and scored twice.
Wednesday, the Orioles called up Xavier Avery for a victory at Houston but optioned him back to the Tides later in the day; he was subbing for Nick Markakis, who was attending his grandmother’s funeral.
New Britain beat Richmond 9-4 at The Diamond, capitalizing as the Flying Squirrels walked 13 Rock Cats.
New Britain had just five hits for the game but took a 9-0 lead, thanks to a two-run fifth inning and a seven-run sixth.
Adam Duvall was 2-for-4 with two runs and an RBI for Richmond. Ricky Oropesa was 2-for-3 with a run.
