Four Games At The Grove
The Keys return to Harry Grove Stadium after a seven game road trip against Lynchburg and Wilmington. Frederick took two-of-three from the Lynchburg Hillcats however the Blue Rocks of Wilmington took three games of the four game set.
*The Keys face the Carolina Mudcats in a four game series starting tonight with Trent Howard on the mound. The seventh round pick in 2011 out of Central Michigan University has started only six games this season but has worked mostly out of the bullpen. Howard is 3-0 as a reliever with a 0.62 ERA in 13 appearances. He has yet to factor into a decision as a started in six games.

Walker sat down with Adam Pohl last week to discuss his recent success.
“I has to be the greatest honor in my baseball career up until now. I couldn’t be more happy.”
