York 10, Lancaster 4

The Lancaster Barnstormers could not get out of an inning quickly on Wednesday evening.

Their pitching staff threw the baseball 205 times, York had 24 baserunners and scored in six different  innings along the way as the Revs took the middle game of a three-game series, 10-4.

Trent Giambrone and Alejandro Rivero took the most advantage of York’s constant presence on the bases, driving in four runs apiece.

It was the shortstop Giambrone that broke a 1-1 tie in the fourth inning, greeting reliever Bret Clarke with an RBI double off the fence in right center, scoring Drew Mendoza, who was walked by Tyler LaPorte (0-1) to start the inning.  After an error kept the inning alive in the fifth, Giambrone delivered a two-run single to center, and Rivero followed with a base hit to right to drive in another as York led, 5-1.

Rivero bashed a two-run homer in the seventh off Donald Goodson, and each knocked home a run against Cole Aker in the ninth.

Shawon Dunston, Jr. drew three walks, stole two bases and scored three times for the Barnstormers.  Trayvon Robinson lashed a two-run single into left in the bottom of the seventh to cut the York lead to 8-4.

Nelvin Correa (1-0) allowed one unearned run in two innings of work to record the win after taking over from emergency starter Denson Hull, who lasted four innings.

The Barnstormers and Revolution will conclude the three-game series on Thursday evening at 6:30. Lancaster will send right-hander Brandyn Sittinger (0-1) to the mound against right-hander Jorge Martinez (0-1).  Fans may tune into FloSports coverage beginning at 6:25.

NOTES:  Robinson was 2-for-3, hitting safely in his fourth straight game…All five Lancaster pitchers gave up at least two hits, at least one walk and at least one run…The Barnstormers played without their hottest hitter, Ariel Sandoval, who sat after banging a foul ball off his foot on Tuesday evening.


Staten Island 7, Long Island 6

Central Islip, N.Y., May 3, 2023) – The Long Island Ducks were defeated by the Staten Island FerryHawks 7-6 on Wednesday night in the middle game of a three-game series at Fairfield Properties Ballpark.

Staten Island took a 1-0 lead in the second inning on an error that scored Jack Elliott. Three more runs (two earned) off Ducks starter Joe Iorio in the third extended the lead to four. Cristian Santana’s two-run double and an error that scored Santana did the damage.

It stayed that way until the sixth when Dominick Bucko’s RBI double and Jeff Wehler’s RBI single made it a 6-0 ballgame. Long Island closed the gap to two with a four-run seventh inning. A wild pitch that scored Joe DeCarlo, a balk that plated Luis Guerrero, Philip Caulfield’s RBI single and Adeiny Hechavarria’s run-scoring groundout highlighted the inning.

Both teams traded runs in the eighth, as Ricardo Cespedes scores on an error while Dustin Woodcock launched a solo homer to center. Daniel Murphy brought the Ducks to within a run in the ninth with a two-out RBI single, but Long Island could not pull even.

FerryHawks starter Christian Capuano did not factor into the decision but tossed four and two-thirds scoreless innings, allowing four hits and a walk while striking out four. James Pazos (1-1) picked up the win after recording the final out of the fifth inning. Iorio (0-1) took the loss, conceding four runs (two earned) on 10 hits over five innings with three strikeouts. Jim Fuller collected his first save of the season despite allowing a run on a hit in the ninth.

Caulfield led the Flock with three hits, an RBI and a run. Joe DeCarlo added two hits and a run.

The Ducks and FerryHawks wrap up their three-game set on Thursday night. Game time is slated for 6:35 p.m., with Fairfield Properties Ballpark gates opening at 5:35 (5:20 for full season ticket holders). It’s a Thirsty Thursday!

High Point Rockers 11, Charleston Dirty Birds 1

HIGH POINT, NC - The High Point Rockers continued their blistering hot start to the season, posting 11 runs behind 13 hits as they cruised to a second consecutive win by an 11-1 final. Starter Brandon Leibrandt was spectacular over four scoreless frames, while the bullpen held serve yet again allowing just a single run the rest of the way.

High Point got the scoring started in the second inning after a pair of singles set the table for Dai-Kang Yoh who promptly lifted a sacrifice fly to bring home the game's first run and make it 1-0. Two batters later it was DJ Burt who joined in on the action, sending a liner into the outfield that scored another pair of runs and stretched the lead to 3-0.

In the bottom of the third, Shed Long Jr. provided more padding to the lead, belting his first homer of the season to deep right field and that inched the High Point edge to 4-0. One inning later, the Rockers continued to pour it on, sending eight batters to the plate. Ryan Grotjohn walked to lead off the inning and Burt immediately brought him around on a wall-ball double to make the game 5-0. Michael Russell was next to stand in, who laced a single to right-center that brought Burt around to the dish.

Charleston posted their lone run in the top of the fifth on a Dwight Smith Jr. RBI groundout. In their next at-bat in the bottom of the inning, High Point once again unleashed an offensive onslaught, tallying four runs thanks to a Grotjohn RBI triple, while Long Jr. and John Nogowski ripped back-to-back RBI doubles. All told, the Rockers led 10-1 after five innings of play.

The Rockers capped off the scoring in the sixth inning with Michael Russell's second RBI knock of the night, which was provided by a trio of walks that prolonged the inning. In all, High Point flashed an abundance of patience, equaling a season-high mark, drawing nine walks for a second consecutive evening.

The bullpen carried the ballgame to the finish line, turning in five innings of one-run baseball, closing out an 11-1 victory. The Rockers have now outscored the Dirty Birds 27-1 in the series, and are eyeing their first sweep of the campaign tomorrow night at Truist Point, with first pitch slated for 6:35 p.m. ET.
