Rockers offense explodes on Blue Crabs

News Release, Southern Maryland Blue Crabs

The scoring started right out of the gates for the Rockers with Blue Crabs starter John Hayes (L, 0-3) on the bump. The first five batters of the ballgame reached base for High Point, and would come to fruition with a Stephen Cardullo RBI double followed by a Viosergey Rosa three run home run, as the Rockers piled on the runs early in Waldorf.

The High Point starting pitcher, Seth Simmons, (W, 4-1) was on point. He was especially good in the early going, setting down the first eleven Blue Crabs that he faced. The Rockers struck again in the top of the third inning, as Brett Austin and Giovanny Alfonzo teamed up for consecutive RBI base hits, notching the scoring tally at 6-0 in favor of High Point through three innings of action.

The Blue Crabs finally broke through in the bottom of the fourth inning when Frank Martinez came through with his fourth home run of the season and his second in the last three games. Furthermore, it was the second home run in the last three games that has been the lone source of offense for Southern Maryland, as they would fall by a final score of 7-1.

The Blue Crabs will return home Tuesday, May 27th to continue their seven game homestand at Regency Furniture Stadium, with the first pitch at 6:35 PM.
