More Close Games in Thursday’s Recap

It was a rainy day in Portland and the Senators couldn’t get their game in against the Sea Dogs. The other teams were good to go and they had Jefry Rodriguez (AAA), Jake Irvin (A+), and Rodney Theophile (A) on the mound.

Class-A Fredericksburg “FredNats” Nationals

Rodney Theophile turned in his first rough outing of the season going five innings and yielding four runs on four hits and two walks. His ERA is still at 1.66. The bullpen picked him by not giving up a run for the rest of the game. Jeremy De La Rosa was the only hitter to tally multiple hits as they only combined for five. Brady House went hitless, but drove two runners in on a day when the FredNats only scored three. FredNats lose 4-3.

High-A Wilmington Blue Rocks

Jake Irvin came into today with an ERA of 0.95, but today he was human. He still managed to limit the damage to two runs over three innings. The offense managed five runs on 12 hits led by Darren Baker and Yasel Antuna‘s three hit days. The BlueClaws scored three unanswered runs from the 6th inning on to take the lead and they didn’t faulter. Blue Rocks lose a close one 5-4.

Double-A Harrisburg Senators

The Senators game against the Portland Sea Dogs was postponed and will be played on May 20.

Triple-A Rochester Red Wings

There was a ton of offense in today’s game with 19 runs and 29 hits combined, 12 runs coming in the first two innings. Wings standouts include Luis Garcia who had two hits, Andrew Stevenson and Taylor Gushue who both had three hits, and Joey Meneses who tallied four hits and a home run. The Wings and IronPigs were tied heading into the bottom of the 9th and Taylor Gushue walked it off with an RBI double. A rewarding way to get win after dropping a few in a row. Wings out-slug the Pigs, 10-9.

Farm System final notes 🎶

The Nats’ minor league system had another bad night with a few one run losses and some uncharacteristic starting pitcher performances. Looking to turn it around tomorrow.
