Shorebirds Lose Second Straight - 47 ABC - Delmarva's Choice

Shorebirds Lose Second Straight

Posted: Updated:
Salisbury, MD -  In a very sloppy game, the Shorebirds saw their losing streak stretch to two after they fell to Savannah 10-5. The teams combined for 6 errors, three a piece from both teams. That spelled danger for Delmarva, as they sent Austin Urban to the mound who entered the night with an ERA over 10.5. After surrendering two early runs, Urban would give up two solo shots in the 3rd to end his night.

The Shorebirds would battle back to try and make things interesting. Delmarva stranded the bases loaded in the third, and an inning-ending double play ruined another bases loaded chance. All told, the Shorebirds left 15 runners on base and went just 3-for-17 with runners in scoring position.

Delmarva trailed 7-1, going to the bottom of the fifth inning. Hector Veloz delivered a two-run single to cut the gap to four runs. However, Savannah responded with runs in the sixth, eighth and ninth innings to push the lead to 10-3.

The game ended on a strange play and disputed ruling by the umpiring crew. The Shorebirds scored twice in the ninth with three singles and an error. With runners on first and second and one out, Mike Yastrzemski popped up on the infield. 

The third baseman failed to catch the ball, and the Shorebirds’ baserunners attempted to advance. The home plate umpire signaled for the infield fly rule, so Yastrzemski was ruled out. Veloz, assuming the force play was still in effect, was tagged out as he slid into third. Shorebirds manager Ryan Minor disputed the call, arguing that the infield fly was ruled too late for the runners to react accordingly.

Chris Flexen (1-1) took the victory for Savannah, as the Sand Gnats improved to 10-5 in first place in the Southern Division. Austin Urban (0-2) settled for the defeat for Delmarva.

The Shorebirds and Sand Gnats continue their three-game series on Tuesday night. Right-hander Hunter Harvey (1-0, 1.06) will try to get Delmarva back on track against right-hander Kevin McGowan (0-0, 3.86) for Savannah. First pitch at Perdue Stadium is scheduled for 7:05 pm.
