Game notes

In the top of the 12th Didi Gregorius walked with two outs and Henry Rodriguez laced one down the line. Didi Gregorius looked like he had a chance to score only to see the ball bounce over the wall for a ground rule double. Joel Guzman struck out to end the inning. Chris Manno struggled with his control in his first game back since coming off of the DL. He walked two hitters and with two outs he threw a wild pitch that let in the game winning run. Brodie Greene is warming up again, hitting .473 over his last 5 games. The extra innings double by Henry Rodriguez made him 1-6 and extended his hitting streak to 15 games.

  • Curtis Partch allowed a run in 3 innings with 3 strikeouts.

Game notes

The Blaze jumped out to a 9-0 lead after four innings, but were shut down by the Lancaster bullpen. Tony Cingrani proved to be human. While he only allowed 1 earned run in the game, he did give up 4 unearned runs including an unearned home run that followed what was originally ruled an inside the park home run that was later changed to an error that should have ended the inning. Bryson Smith is on fire, hitting .366 over his last 10 games and he has 3 multi-hit games in a row. Donald LutzĀ  raised his average to .316 on the season. David Vidal hit his 6th home run of the year, but was thrown out of the game after arguing balls and strikes after what he thought was his second strikeout on a questionable pitch. Tucker Barnhart is 7 for his last 15. Billy Hamilton returned to the line up and went 1-5 with a run. Devin Lohman extended his hitting streak to 6 games.

Dayton was rained out. Double header today starting at 6pm.
