Keys Leave 16 Men On Base But Get Enough in Win
The Keys got a strong start from RHP Dylan Bundy and saw the top-three batters in their order reach base four times each in a 4-2 win on Thursday night at BB&T Ballpark in Winston-Salem.
Bundy was sharp early retiring the first nine batters in just 24 pitches. He labored through the fourth inning allowing a run on four hits but retired the final three batters in succession in the fifth inning leaving with a 2-1 lead in hand.
The surprise was that it was only 2-1. Dash starter Jake Petricka was errant, walking seven batters in four innings. The Keys only pushed home one unearned run though against the erratic righty as they left nine men on-base in the first four innings.
Frederick grabbed the lead in the fifth inning when RF Steve Bumbry, who threw out a runner at the plate to end the fourth, doubled off the centerfield wall. He would score on 3B Travis Adair’s RBI-single to grab a 2-1 lead.
The Keys led 4-2 to the ninth inning and RHP Ryan Berry entered and set down the side in order. The bullpen trio of Jason Gurka, David Walters and Berry combined to not allow an earned run in four innings.
