    Posted 2018-06-28 01:57:58 by: Deleted Member

    Wilmington, DE- For the second straight game, the Wilmington Blue Rocks (34-42/3-3) saw the Lynchburg Hillcats (34-40/5-2) put together a big inning to pull away as the Rocks fell by the score of 5-1 Wednesday at Frawley Stadium. Blue Rocks' starter Ofreidy Gomez cruised through his first five innings before the Hillcats figured him out in the sixth. Wilmington had plenty of offensive chances as they left a runner stranded in scoring position in each of the first four innings. -  Wilmington again struck for a first inning run when Travis Jones blooped a run-scoring single to centerfield to plate Blake Perkins who led the inning off with an infield single. That would be all the Rocks would be able to push across against Lynchburg's starter Eli Morgan who worked out of constant traffic on the bases. The Blue Crew pushed a runner to third in the second inning, had runners at second and third in the third frame, and put another runner at third in the bottom of the fourth but were unable to crack Morgan.   Gomez was cruising through his first five innings of work. He allowed just four base runners through that span with his only blemish being a game-tying home run off the bat of Lynchburg's Conner Capel. However in the sixth inning, Gomez ran into some trouble. Mitch Longo ripped an RBI triple to put Lynchburg out in front, 2-1.
