    Wasn’t Britton scheduled for tomorrow night in Bowie? Originally supposed to be yesterday, but then moved to tomorrow I thought.

        No problem. That’s a big one people will want to know about!

          Your correct, Britton was moved to tonight (Saturday). Steve Melewski at MASN reported on Thrusday that Britton had the “slightest of groin injuries” and was getting an extra few days of rest.

          Things seem to be fine, since Britton has continued his dominance of the Senators (already 4-0 vs. Harrisburg this season). The box score shows that he pitched 6 scoreless innings with 2 hits, 4 strikeouts, and 3 walks.

            Britton has been completely dominant against them, and his start tonight marked his 6th quality start in a row.

    Tides (30-39)
    Chris George went 4 innings, giving up 9 hits, 6 earned runs, and 2 home runs (1 in the 1st and 1 in the 2nd).

    Baysox (35-32)
    For the second time in three games, Bowie came from behind in the 8th inning. Spoone’s quality start streak stopped at 6. Even though he walked 4 and had a wild pitch, he was not helped by 3 of the team’s 4 errors. Fortunately, the Baysox were helped by 4 shutout innings of relief by Eddie Gamboa and Bob McCrory. Gamboa picked up his second win of the season and McCrory his first save. During the four run 8th inning, Joel Guzman picked up his team-leading 47th RBI.

    Keys (40-28)
    Frederick reached 40 first-half wins for just the second time in team history on Friday night. The team broke a 4-4 tie with 3 unearned runs in the 6th inning. Starter Richard Zagone got his 4th win of the season and closer Jose Diaz earned his Carolina League leading 10th save.

    Shorebirds (31-37)
    Delmarva won its 5th game in a row and its 8th straight home game on Friday night. DH Levi Carolus had 3 hits on the night, including a 3 run double in the 1st inning. Jesse Beal took the win, his team leading 5th of the season.

    Additionally, the South Atlantic League announced that the 2011 All-Star Game will be held June 21, 2011 at Arthur Purdue Stadium.

    IronBirds (1-0)
    Aberdeen opened up their NY-Penn League Season with an outstanding start by Justin Anderson. He took the win by giving up just 1 hit and 1 earned run off of a 6th inning home run. The IronBirds broke open a 1-1 game in the bottom of the 6th with 4 runs, including back-to-back RBI triples from Kipp Schutz and Jeremy Nowak. In all, the team had 6 extra base hits and 11 hits in total.

    Steve Melewski at MASN has profiles on OF Jeremy Nowak and C Joe Oliveira.

    He also has an inspiring interview with OF Lance West. West has been battling near blindness in his left eye for most of his life. Thanks to proper diagnosis and treatment, he is now able to see out of both eyes. Unfortunately for Lance, he was released by the team on Saturday. Hopefully, he will be able to find a spot with another team very soon.

    Bluefield Orioles (0-0)
    The Bluefield Telegraph Daily has a profile of new team General Manager Jim Pettus. The Orioles start their Appalachian League on Tuesday night. Their roster should be in place this weekend.
