Shorebirds Complete Sweep of Augusta - 47 ABC - Delmarva's Choice

Shorebirds Complete Sweep of Augusta

Posted: Updated:
Salisbury, MD.- After posting two dominant shutouts the two previous nights, the Delmarva Shorebirds finished off a three-game sweep the Augusta GreenJackets with a 6-4 victory Friday night at Perdue Stadium.

Shorebirds starter Sebastian Vader gave up the shutout early, as GreenJackets leadoff man Christian Arroyo would homer in the first at-bat of the game. Delmarva would answer in the bottom of the first as catcher Austin Wynns belted a two-out double down the right field line, scoring both Jeff Kemp and Trey Mancini. Wynns would deliver another RBI in the third, singling to bring Kemp home again. The 'Birds made it 4-1 when Gregory Lorenzo was hit by a pitch with the bases jammed, forcing home another run.

Outfielder Mike Yastrzemski led off the fourth inning with a triple to the gap in right-center field. It was his fourth triple of the season, tied for second-most in the South Atlantic League. Yastrzemski would go on to score on a fielder's choice, after Mancini beat out a potential inning-ending double play.

The Shorebirds seemed to be in control up 5-1, but Augusta would make a push in the fifth. The GreenJackets would score three runs in the frame, highlighted by a two-run triple to centerfield by Tyler Horan. Vader managed to strand Horan on third, keeping Delmarva up by a single run.

Delmarva's bullpen would dominate from there. Right hander Jon Keller stranded a runner on third in both the sixth and seventh, pitching three scoreless innings, allowing just two hits and striking out five GreenJackets.

The Shorebirds would add a key insurance run in the eighth inning as third baseman Hector Veloz doubled and advanced to third via wild pitch. Veloz scored on a sac fly by second baseman Federico Castagnini, bumping the lead to 6-4.

Closer Jimmy Yacabonis finished in the ninth, earning his SAL leading eighth save on the year. Sebastian Vader improved to 4-1 with the win. The Shorebirds will try to continue their success at home as the Lakewood BlueClaws come to town Saturday. Luc Rennie (0-3, 8.03) will take the mound for Delmarva, first pitch scheduled for 7:05 p.m.
