Bear muscles past Piedmont at Cal Ripken Tournament

VIDEO: Highlights and Reaction to Bear's victory
Bear's Cole Reynolds highlighted a 14-run 2nd inning with a grand slam, as the tournament hosts defeated Piedmont 17-4 to earn a spot in Sunday's Delaware Babe Ruth Baseball Tournament.

Piedmont jumped ahead 2-0 in the first inning as Peter Erskine scored on a double steal and William Carillo crossed the plate on a wild pitch.

Bear got a run back in the bottom half of the first, and held Piedmont scoreless in their half of the second, before the floodgates opened.

The first 10 Bear batters of the 2nd inning all reached base and scored. Bryce Sterling and Austin Prior each hit RBI singles before Colby Niggebrugge's RBI bases-loaded walk. Three batters later, the biggest shot of the 6-hit inning came off the bat of Cole Reynolds, who sent the baseball over the left-field wall for the Grand Slam. He finished 3-for-3 for the game.

Kegan Miller later added a 2-run double, and he would pick up another one in the 3rd as Bear pounded out 9 hits in just 3 turns at-bat.

Piedmont scored 4 runs in the 4th inning, including an RBI doubles from Carillo and Austin Edmonds, and an RBI single from Bennett Ross, but it wasn't enough to keep the game going.

Piedmont will face the Community Athletic League Saturday at 11am (weather permitting) in the game to determine who will face Bear in Sunday's final.

The winner of the tournament advances to next week's Middle Atlantic Regional Tournament to be held at Piedmont in Hockessin.

Juan Uribe hit a tie-breaking homer in the seventh inning, Julio Teheran delivered another strong home start and the Atlanta Braves beat the Philadelphia Phillies 2-1 on Friday night.

Uribe pulled Adam Morgan's first pitch in the seventh over the 380-foot sign in left field. It was one of the few mistakes for Morgan, a rookie left-hander who also gave up a second-inning homer to Jonny Gomes.

Teheran (6-4) allowed one unearned run and seven hits in seven innings. He improved to 5-0 in eight starts at Turner Field. He is 1-4 in nine road starts.

Morgan (1-1) gave up two runs and five hits in seven innings. The Phillies have lost five straight and eight of nine.

The Braves, coming off a series win over the Washington Nationals, have won three straight.



Danks, Abreu lead White Sox over Orioles 1-0

By Associated Press 10:50pm, July 3, 2015
John Danks pitched seven scoreless innings and Jose Abreu hit a home run, leading the Chicago White Sox past the Baltimore Orioles 1-0 on Friday night.

The White Sox have won seven of their last 11 games after losing a season-high eight straight.

Danks (4-8) was impressive after getting skipped in the rotation. The left-hander allowed five hits with five strikeouts and two walks. He was 0-4 in his previous four starts with a 6.85 ERA.

Jake Petricka pitched a perfect eighth and David Robertson struck out the side in the ninth for his 17th save in 21 chances.

Baltimore has lost four of its last five games. Adam Jones continued to struggle against Danks, going 0 for 3 on Friday, now making him 1 for 33 overall against Danks.



8-run 8th rallies Rocks past Lynchburg

By Blue Rocks PR 11:44pm, July 3, 2015
Down 6-1 heading into the bottom of the eighth inning, the Rocks put together a miraculous comeback with eight runs in the frame, coming from way behind to win the rubber match against Lynchburg 9-6.

Wilmington improved to 44-34 while Lynchburg dropped to 37-41. Mauricio Ramos smacked a solo homer in the first inning, and ended up with four RBIs total to lead the way offensively.

The Hillcats jumped on Eric Skoglund in the top of the first inning. Luigi Rodriguez led off the game with a double, and was brought home by Clint Frazier, who followed with a single. After another base hit by Bradley Zimmer, Skoglund would bear down and escape the inning without further damage thanks in large part to a ground ball double play.

The Rocks evened the score very quickly courtesy of the long ball. In the bottom of the first, Lynchburg starter Michael Peoples retired the first two men of the inning, but Ramos took him deep to left for a solo blast that tied the score at one. Peoples got Cody Stubbs to pop out to end the frame.

Lynchburg regained the lead in the top of the third inning. Luigi Rodriguez tripled to lead off the frame, then scored when Frazier produced a sacrifice fly, making it 2-1 Hillcats. Skoglund yielded another single to Zimmer, but got out of the inning with only that one run pushed across.

The Hillcats would score the next three runs of the game in the top of the fourth. After an Eric Haase single, Mike Papi delivered a two-run homer that stretched Lynchburg's lead to 4-1. Two more singles would follow, then later, with two down in the frame, Skoglund threw a wild pitch that plated Yhoxian Medina with Zimmer at the dish. Skoglund would go on to walk Zimmer, and that was where his night would end. Robinson Yambati came out of the bullpen and got Nellie Rodriguez to ground out to end the inning at 5-1 Hillcats.

Lynchburg added a run in the top of the seventh inning. Zimmer got the frame started with a single, but Yambati retired the next two batters. Haase provided some two-out magic, as he doubled to the wall to bring Zimmer home, making it 6-1 Hillcats.

The bottom of the eighth was where it all came together for Wilmington. After the Blue Rocks loaded the bases with nobody out, Ramon Torres singled to cut the lead to 6-2. Ramos would be next, and he emptied the bags with a three-RBI double to bring the Rocks to within a run. After a Stubbs fly out got Ramos to third, Frank Schwindel singled to tie the game. Jack Lopez followed with a fly out, then Alfredo Escalera singled to put runners on the corners with two away. With Cam Gallagher at the dish, pitcher Justin Brantley attempted a pick-off throw to first that he threw away, allowing Schwindel to score the go-ahead run. Later in the frame, Wilmington would again load the bases, this time with two down, and Carlos Garcia would put the final nail in the coffin with a two-run double that capped the scoring at 9-6.

The first-half champion Blue Rocks travel to Potomac on Saturday to begin a three-game series against the Nationals. First pitch in game one is scheduled for 6:35 p.m.
