Today's game previews -- June 25

The Triple-A Norfolk Tides continue their series against the Pawtucket Red Sox with an afternoon game at Harbor Park, and the Double-A Bowie Baysox play the Binghamton Mets on the road tonight.

The Single-A Frederick Keys begin the second half at Harry Grove Stadium against the Winston-Salem Dash, while the Single-A Delmarva Shorebirds come out of the All-Star break with a road matchup against the Lakewood BlueClaws.

The short-season Single-A Aberdeen IronBirds face the Brooklyn Cyclones.

Along with the three pitchers who were promoted to the Keys yesterday -- Rick Zagone, Eddie Gamboa and Pat Egan -- the Shorebirds announced that Joe Esposito will head to Frederick.

Also, right-handed pitcher Patrick Kantakevich was transferred from Delmarva to Aberdeen, and left-handed pitcher Nathan Moreau headed back to the Shorebirds.

The Keys are less than 3,000 fans away from six million in franchise history, so they're likely to surpass that milestone at tonight's game.

Frederick will give a prize pack to the fan who is the six-millionth person to enter the stadium. The prizes include:

1. A Keys jersey with the No. 6

2. Autographed ball by the Keys

3. Two Keys Cafe tickets

4. Six Keys game tickets

5. Six Keys baseball hats

6. Matt Wieters bobblehead

7. Several more "six"-themed items and coupons

Yesterday, a few IronBirds players went to Rock State Park to participate in a summer camp for children of military personnel. Aberdeen infielder Tom Edwards (left) and right-handed pitcher James Brandhorst were among the players who talked to the kids during the event. A special thanks to the IronBirds for passing along the photo.
