Joe Palumbo was on the mound for the Frisco Roughriders, and he had a strong outing before running into trouble his final two innings. Palumbo allowed one run through his first four innings before allowing a pair of runs in the 5th, and then a single run in the 6th, being victimized by triples in each inning. His final line was 6 IP, 6 hits, 4 runs, 2 walks, and 9 strikeouts.
Righthander Jason Bahr started for Down East tonight and has a workmanlike outing, allowing 2 runs in 5 innings of work, with 4 hits, 2 walks and 4 Ks. Joe Barlow pitched the final 2.1 IP in scoreless fashion, allowing 1 hit, striking out 3 and lowering his ERA on the year to 0.54. Sam Huff, in his second Carolina League game, went 2 for 4 with a double.
For Hickory, the bats made some noise...Jonathan Ornelas and Sherten Apostel each had 2 hit games, and Curtis Terry had 3 hits, including a home run, along with a walk.
