Blue Rocks Barking Up the Wrong Tree

The Keys take on the Wilmington Blue Rocks tonight for the second game of the three game home stand.  The opener last night was an exciting one to say the least as the Keys played the role of the comeback kids; scoring four runs in the bottom of the eighth inning. Keys trailed 3-1 in the top of the 8th but thanks to an RBI single by Tucker Nathans followed by another single by Dariel Alvarez which scored two runs, and finally a two run double by Travis Adair, the Keys gained a four run lead over the Blue Rocks. Matt Hobgood got the win on the night, which was his second of the year, and Gene Escat got the save, his sixth of the year.

Howard

The Keys are handing the ball off to left hander Trent Howard, who has yet to lose a game this season. The twenty three year old has an impressive ERA of only 2.0 paired with an equally  impressive sinking fastball.  The Keys will  be facing the Blue Rock’s left hander, Angel Baez. Baez is a twenty two year old from Puerto Rico with a record of 6 and 7 and 3.17 ERA. Wilmington sure is barking up the wrong tree tonight!

The Key’s line up is looking sharp tonight, check it out!
