Scores and Highlights from 5/4

Durham Bulls off day

Montgomery Biscuits 8, Carolina Mudcats 1
Matt Moore allowed one run on two hits as he struck out a season-high nine batters in 5 innings. Paul Phillips and Neil Schenk combined for four scoreless innings in relief. The Biscuits took advantage of four Carolina errors, scoring three unearned runs. Reid Fronk hit his second home run of the year. The top three of Cole Figueroa, Tim Beckham, and Stephen Vogt combined for three hits and seven RBIs.

Jupiter Hammerheads 5, Charlotte Stone Crabs 4 (16 innings)
Jupiter tied the game in the 9th innings, then the two teams went scoreless until the Hammerheads won it on a throwing error by Tyler Bortnick on a potential double play. Alex Colome started at struck out six in 6 innings, but also walked four and allowed a three-run home run. Bortnick and Chris Murrill each had three hits, while Hak-Ju Lee and Brett Nommensen had two apiece. Mayobanex Acosta homered and drove in two.

Lake County Captains 4, Bowling Green Hot Rods 0
Two Lake County pitchers combined on a one-hitter. Luke Bailey was the only Hot Rods hitter to reach base (on a single), and he was erased on a double play. Hot Rods hitters struck out twelve times. C.J. Riefenhauser allowed three runs (only one earned) in 5.1 innings.


  1. XST was behind when I left, Shull left the game after the first shaking his arm, not a good sign. Swilley pitched OK, but had quite a few PB/WP with Olivares that looked like they were not "on the same page" as they say. Malm had a rocket double to right center to knock in a run early, but the offense was pretty non-existent after that. Havlicek pitched well in his couple of innings, for a kid who tops in the mid-80's he does well, getting three K's on slow breaking balls in one inning. O'Malley making progress, he slipped on a base and rolled his ankle but remained in the game, which is good news. Sale had his left wrist taped, so was non-participatory but Vettelson was taking BP after getting beaned last week so good news bad news there.

  2. Blah, not good to hear that about Sale. Wrist injuries can linger.

  3. Thanks a lot for the update though, Jim!
