Rain forced the game between the Triple-A Norfolk Tides and Louisville Bats to be postponed, and the matchup between the Single-A Frederick Keys and Kinston Indians was suspended in the bottom of the first inning due to the weather.
The Double-A Bowie Baysox defeated the Erie SeaWolves for the fourth time in five games this weekend at Prince George's Stadium.
The Single-A Delmarva Shorebirds lost both games of a doubleheader to the West Virginia Power.
Norfolk Tides (AAA)
As I mentioned earlier, the Tides and Bats were unable to play their scheduled game due to inclement weather. The two teams will make up the rainout as part of a doubleheader on Monday beginning at 6:15 p.m. Chris Tillman is expected to start the first game for Norfolk, and David Pauley will pitch in the nightcap. Sam LeCure and Homer Bailey will start the two games for Louisville.
Recap: The Baysox beat Erie, 3-1, to complete a series in which they won four out of five games from the SeaWolves this weekend.
Bowie starting pitcher Bobby Livingston (4-1) earned the victory after giving up one run and seven hits in five innings. The 26-year-old left-hander is now tied with Jake Arrieta for the most wins on the team.
Baysox third baseman Mike Costanzo was 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI, and first baseman Brandon Snyder also added an RBI double. Center fielder Jonathan Tucker was 1-for-3 with a double and a run scored for Bowie.
Relief pitcher Ryan Ouellette allowed one hit in two scoreless innings for the Baysox, while Chad Thall and Josh Perrault each tossed one scoreless frame. Perrault earned his second save of the season for Bowie.Frederick Keys (A)
The Keys scored two runs before the rain forced their game against Kinston to be suspended with the Indians batting in the bottom of the first inning. There is no word on when the game will be continued. Frederick is scheduled to make two more trips to Kinston this season -- once in July and once in August. The Keys return home to play the Lynchburg Hillcats in a four-game series beginning tomorrow night at Harry Grove Stadium.
