Franklyn Kilome made his second start for the Senators, turning in five innings of two-run ball on three hits and two walks. The loss went to Francys Peguero on a two-run HR in the 6th, which broke a 2-2 deadlock. Alfredo Rodriguez and Justin Connell both went 2-for-4 with a run scored to pace the Sens offense, which drew just one walk and was 1-for-6 with RISP.

A Blue Rocks bullpen meltdown sent the game into extras where the ‘Hoppers prevailed in the 12th, 7-6. Mitchell Parker labored through four innings, needing 77 pitches to get 12 outs with one run let in on four hits and two walks while striking out five. Following two scoreless from
Methuselah Gilberto Chu, Jose Ferrer was manhandled for four runs on four hits (one HR) and two walks over one-plus innings. The loss went to Malvin Peña on single following a sacrifice. Wilmington managed just six hits, but two of them were homers (Yasel Antuna, Omar Meregildo), and drew six walks. Three extra innings helped inflate the Blue Rocks’ RISP mark (2-for-16) and LOB tally (11).

That faint thumping you may hear is the sound of folks banging the drum* for Rodney Theophile to be promoted to High-A after the 22-y.o.
