Not A Good Night To Be A Sauce Packet

At Harry Grove Stadium, we have the running of the sauce packets brought to you by Taco Bell.  In Monday night’s game against the Myrtle Beach Pelicans, it is safe to say that the packets were… not on their game.

Our intern Jeff Kurkjian, needless to say, jinxed the entire operation when he tweeted out the following:

He was joined by our other interns, Kevin and Kyler, who shared in the excitement but no could have guess what happened next. The packets first start off in the wonderful city of Frederick and race to Harry Grove Stadium.

That is when things began to go south. The hot sauce, was taken out of the race early with a little bit of an altercation with the fence…

*Video courtesy of Thomas Walker.

So with just two packets left in the race it, it was tied till the very end.  The mild and the fire sauce got down to a few feet when the unexpected happened.

The mild sauce ended up on top in one of the strangest Taco Bell Sauce races in the history of Harry Grove Stadium.

Tuesday, the Keys went into extra innings and the sauces ran again.  Our interns, Jeff and Kyler, got redemption by NOT falling on their faces.  Jeff, dressed in the hot sauce ended up on top, redeeming his pathetic performance from the night before.

Come on out to the Grove to this Saturday to see the Cowboy Monkey Rodeo at  7p.m. Odds are it will be even better than Monday’s ill-fated sauce debacle.

Steve Pearce Rehabs In Frederick

Steve Pearce is the first Baltimore to rehab with the Frederick Keys this season. He has been out since June 21 with sore wrists. He plans to play all three games of this home stand against the Lynchburg Hillcats and will bat second and play first base in tonight’s lineup. Check out the official press release on Pearce’s visit to Frederick here.

*Fun facts about Pearce at Harry Grove Stadium from out broadcaster, Tim Murray.

In other transactions news, Keys catcher, Zane Chavez, has been activated from the disabled list and will bat fourth as the designated hitter in tonight’s lineup. He was placed on the DL on June 14 due to an oblique strain.

*The Keys went 16 innings against the Salem Red Sox on Friday night.  Thanks to Michael Ohlman, the Keys finished their road trip with a win.

On their last road trip, the Keys went .500 winning three of their six games.  The final game against Salem was postponed due to rain. The Keys face the Hillcats at home tonight at 7pm.

Ryan Minor’s lineup for tonight’s game

Jason Esposito has been a silent killer for the Keys in the month of July. He is batting .312 this month with four doubles and 17 RBIs in addition playing both corners of the diamond. He will bat in the sixth position tonight where is hitting .299 with two home runs and 16 RBIs this season.

Wager

Brady Wager is set to start in tonight’s game against the Lynchburg Hillcats.  Wager is 2-4 this season with a 4.86 ERA.  He has lost all four of his home starts this season.

*Speaking of Keys starters, Tim Murray sat down Zach Clark last week to talk some Keys baseball.

*Tim Murray also sat down with Lex Rutledge on July 25, just a day after he was promoted from Class-A Delmarva.

Time to wake up the bats in Winston-Salem

Before we get started talking current Keys, let’s take a moment to watch former Key Nick Markakis’ incredible home-run robbing catch. Because I just figured out how to embed MLB.com videos here, Markakis’ grab becomes the first in a new segment: Former Keys Highlight of the Day.

No homer for you, Adrian Beltre.

Moving on to the current Frederick squad, the Keys lost 3-2 last night, only able to muster five hits. One of them was Allan de San Miguel’s RBI double, which sounded like this:

*The Keys’ catcher was also featured in this week’s edition of Five Questions in the Frederick News-Post. Read it here

Read more on last night’s loss on FrederickKeys.com.

*In today’s Keys notebook in the FNP, Greg Swatek takes a look at Matt Hobgood’s 4.1 inning, one-run debut on Saturday.

Wager

Tonight’s Keys starter Brady Wager surely hopes his teammates break out of their recent offensive funk.

*Frederick’s offense has been lacking for all but one game in the last five.

The Keys have had five or fewer hits in four of their last five games and have scored two or fewer runs in those four. On Friday, Frederick had 14 hits, 13 of them singles, and scored nine runs, an anomaly during their recent offensive woes. Since being no-hit by Salem on Wednesday, Frederick has had just four extra-base hits and is batting .176 (6-for-34) with runners in scoring position.

Here’s to hoping their bats reawaken tonight, with the Keys just 1.5 games behind Wilmington for a second-half playoff berth.

Brady Wager starts for the Keys against Chris Beck, who, incredibly, is yet to register a no-decision through 17 starts. He’s 9-8, leading the league in wins and has the second-most losses. More on Wager, Beck and tonight’s game in the game notes:

*O’s legend Boog Powell was Frederick’s guest Saturday on Salute to the Orioles Night at The Grove. Tim Murray sat down and talked with the man best known for hitting homers, going sleeveless and making some excellent barbeque:

Keys are gone fishin’, Ohlman wins POTW

Ohlman (2)

Keys catcher Michael Ohlman was named Carolina League Player of the Week this morning. He and the Keys start a four-game series at Carolina tonight.

Before we get started, take a listen to this:

That was one of Michael Ohlman’s two triples Friday night, part of a weekend that saw him go 5-for-10 with four extra-base hits and earned him the Keys’ first Carolina League Player of the Week nod this season.

Ohlman has been the Keys’ most productive offensive player since returning from the disabled list on May 23, batting .340 with five home runs, four triples, five doubles and 12 RBIs. His average now sits at .300 for the year. Read more about Ohlman and his league honor here.

Ohlman’s been getting some twitter love today, as word of his POTW honor spread quickly through the Baltimore media.

*As for last night, the Keys lost 6-5 to Myrtle Beach and are just 11-18 in one-run games this year. Read Adam Vencill’s game story in the Frederick News-Post here. It was an ugly game and here’s a little of what Ryan Minor said in today’s paper.

“A poor game all around. We can’t have nine walks. We can’t have runners not score with less than two outs two or three times,” Minor said. “It’s a tough loss, but we’ll bounce back tomorrow and go back at it.”

Zach Davies starts tonight for the Keys against Carolina.

Zach Davies starts tonight for the Keys against Carolina.

*Tonight the Keys head to Carolina to open a four-game set with the 22-51 Mudcats. Zach Davies starts for Frederick against all-star Cody Anderson, who has the second lowest ERA in the league at 2.63. Davies won his only start against the Mudcats this season, despite allowing five runs. More on tonight’s 7:15 p.m. game is below, in the game notes. You can listen to the Keys on 1450 AM The Source in Frederick or online at wthu.org. The broadcast is also available on smartphones through the  TuneIn Radio app.

*Offense hasn’t been an issue for the Keys lately as they’re averaging nearly eight runs per game over their last six. Keys play-by-play man Adam Pohl sat down with Keys hitting coach Torre Tyson before last series:

*The Keys are back in town Friday and stay home through July 3rd. Get your tickets online.

*Saturday is Disney Night presented by Cruise Holidays of Frederick, who will be giving away a Disney trip at Saturday’s game. We’re placing beach balls around Frederick this week that can be redeemed at Cruise Holidays for a free ticket to Saturday’s game and an entry in the giveaway. Keep your ear to the ground and your eyes on our Facebook page for clues.

*We’ll have fireworks all weekend and on July 3rd, which will also feature a beer tasting special called “Taste of History Night.” Brewer’s Alley will be unveiling their newest Civil War era beer, Gettysburg Wheat, along with five other tasty brews.

Until next time, Shake your Keys.

Scout Night at The Grove feat. Berry and the Keys

Tim Berry looks to right the Keys’ course tonight against the Pelicans at 6 p.m.

Myrtle Beach continued its dominance of the Keys last night, winning its ninth game in the 12 that the two teams have played this season. The Pelicans won 7-3 last night to open the second half, but in baseball there’s almost always tomorrow, and that’s the case today.

Ryan Minor’s lineup for tonight’s game

The Keys host the Pelicans at 6 p.m. for the annual Scout Night at The Grove. Hopefully the 1,000 or so campers spending the night at the stadium will be happy after tonight’s contest. More on tonight’s game in a bit. First, let’s look back at last night, Fredrick’s 10th loss in its last 12 games.

*Read Bill Cauley’s game story from last night’s loss here on the Frederick News-Post’s website. He spoke with Keys manager Ryan Minor post-game. Here’s a bit of their conversation:

“They just seem to have our number, we can’t quite figure them out,” Keys’ manager Ryan Minor said. “You want to get off to a good start in the second half, this is not the way to do it.”

*Tim Berry starts for the Keys tonight, a winner in his only start against Myrtle Beach this season, against fellow left-hander Victor Payano, owner of the third lowest batting average against in the Carolina League. All your info for today’s game is in the game notes:

*A few Keys have been slumping lately, including the team leader in home runs, Nicky Delmonico, who went 0-2 with the bases loaded last night. He’s got just six hits in his last 38 at-bats, but attempted to remedy his slump with what he calls “vacuum therapy.”

Read more about vacuum therapy, a technique Michael Ohlman has also picked up, in this FNP story by Adam Vencill.

Eduardo Rodriguez’s experience at the California-Carolina League All-Star Game

Image

Courtesy of @eduardorod5

If there was any doubt about which league was superior this season, that was settled last night.

The Carolina League All-Stars pounded the California League All-Stars 12-2 in San Jose, Keys all-star Eduardo Rodriguez pitching a scoreless second inning, walking one and striking out one. Keys catcher Zane Chavez was in uniform representing Frederick, but couldn’t play due to an oblique strain.

A look at Rodriguez’s all-star experience, from his own twitter account:

*The game story from last night’s Carolina League beatdown.

*And an MiLB photo gallery from the festivities in San Jose.

*The Keys are back in town this weekend, opening up a three-game series with Myrtle Beach at 7 p.m. on Friday. Wrestling legend Sgt. Slaughter will be leading our annual Fredneck Games and there’s a good chance this will happen to one lucky/unlucky person at The Grove:

All-Star Break Blog: Rodriguez and Chavez and more O’s draft review

Tonight in San Jose, Keys Zane Chavez and Eduardo Rodriguez will don the Carolina League All-Stars uniform as they take on the California League All-Stars. The oldest and youngest members of the Keys have both posted impressive first halves and were voted to the game by Carolina managers, front offices and members of the media.

The game starts at 10:35 Eastern Time. All your ASG info is here and if you have the MiLB.tv package, you can watch the game here.

*A closer look at the Eduardo Rodriguez:

  • Tied for second in the Carolina League in wins (6), is third in innings pitched (78.1) and seventh in ERA (2.99). Has induced 10 groundball double plays this season.
  • Rated by Baseball America as the fifth-best prospect in Orioles organization and third-best pitching prospect behind 2012 Keys Dylan Bundy & Kevin Gausman.
  • Potentially could be the first Venezuelan player signed, developed and promoted to the majors by Baltimore. At age 20, Rodriguez is the youngest member of the Keys.
  • Has pitched at least six innings in 10 of his 13 starts.
  • Went 5-0 with a 2.23 ERA in May, holding batters to a .208 batting average. He was named Orioles Minor League Pitcher of the Month.
  • He carried a no-hit bid into the seventh inning on May 1 against Myrtle Beach, a game he won after allowing just three hits. Ashley Marshall talked to him after the game. An excerpt:

“This was the best outing of my career,” Rodriguez said. “I felt good today, awesome. I was throwing inside with my fastball and then on the outside corner, and I was working ahead.”

  • Watch Rodriguez fan Myrtle Beach’s Rougned Odor here.

Image

*A closer look at Zane Chavez:

  • In his first season of affiliated baseball, Chavez, 26, leads all Carolina League catchers in homers (4), RBIs (27), and is second in batting average (.268).
  • He took over as the everyday catcher for the Keys in mid-April, when Michael Ohlman went to the disabled list. In May, he hit .305 in 24 games, driving in 18 runs, walking 20 times and posting an OPS of .889.
  • A slow start to June (1-for-21) got worse when he strained his oblique last week and was placed on the DL. As a result, Chavez won’t play in the all-star game tonight, but he will be in the dugout in uniform.
  • That one hit was a big one, though, a walk-off homer on June 4 to beat Lynchburg in the 10th inning.

On Feb. 1, Chavez finally received what, it seemed, he had been working his entire life for. The Orioles purchased his contract and invited him to spring training in Sarasota, Fla. At last, he was going to get the chance to play for an affiliated team.

“If I was younger, I would have been bouncing off the walls. I got my shot!,” he said. “But I have been playing ball for so long and I’m a little bit older now. So, getting the call was really just the next step in my career.”

The first person Chavez called to share the news was his mother.

“She was ecstatic,” he said. “She took it way better than me. She was at work. I was like, ‘Mom, your

son is an Oriole now.’ She cried. She expressed more emotion than I did.”

*Orioles draft overview, part two

The O’s picked 41 players in this year’s first-year player draft, 14 high schoolers and 27 college players, a lot of whom will don the Keys jersey in the next several seasons. Jeff Kurkjian looks at Baltimore’s second 10 picks:

  • Austin Wynns, C (Rd. 10, 309th Overall)- He has been known as a blocking machine behind the plate and keeps the runners in check with his arm.  He is a below average hitter but solidly built at 6-foot-2 and 205 pounds.
  • Steven Brault, LHP (Rd. 11, 339th Overall)- Ranked 419th in Baseball America’s Top 500, Brault went 8-3, 2.63 with 103 strikeouts and 18 walks in just 79 innings while playing at Division II, Regis in Colorado.  His fastball sits around 88-90 MPH topping around 92. He also has a nice slider but needs to work on his change-up. Little known fact, Brault is also a vocal performance major so he can not only start a professional baseball game but he can sing the National Anthem before it.
  • Jake Bray, RHP (Rd. 12, 369th Overall)- At Feather River JC, Bray was the first baseman and closer for the team but the scouts see him more as a pitcher. His fastball sits around 92-94 MPH, topping out around 96 MPH. He also has a good change-up and a decent slider. He has always been a bullpen boy but the Orioles system will most likely get him a starting position and see how he does. Bray was ranked 288th in Baseball America’s Top 500.
  • Jimmy Yacabonis, RHP (Rd. 13, 399th Overall)- A junior from St. Joseph’s University, this 6-foot-3 relief pitcher originally from New Jersey broke the school record for saves with ten in one season.  He posted a 1-2 record with a 2.02 ERA in 35.2 innings and 26 appearances.
  • Mike Yastrzemski, OF (Rd. 14, 429th Overall)- Ranked 251st in Baseball America’s Top 500, the grandson of Hall of Famer, Carl Yastrzemski, Mike batted .402 in his senior year at Vanderbilt.  Yastrzemski  is one of the SEC’s top base runners and a very skilled an outfielder.
  • Tyler Walsh, SS (Rd. 15, 459th Overall)- The shortstop from Mater Dei HS in Evansville, Indiana is the first middle infielder the Orioles selected. He has committed to Belmont University in Nashville in November. The 6-foot-5 infielder had played all positions on the diamond and is very versatile.
  • Randolph Gassaway, 1B (Rd.16, 489th Overall)- The 6-foot-four first baseman just graduated from Riverwood High School in Atlanta, Georgia. He was chosen for the Rawlings All Americans and All Regions 2013 Southeast All Region 1st Team. He is a born power hitter and compliments it with his 6.65 time in the sixty.
  • Caleb Kellogg, RHP (Rd. 17, 519th Overall)- This Kentucky native standing at six-feet tall, both pitched and played in the outfield in high school. He then attended University of Louisiana in Lafayette and served as the team’s closers for two years. Opposing batters hit only .202 against him his sophomore year. He pitched 35.2 innings, struck out 41 batters and posted a 2.52 ERA.
  • Reed Reilly, RHP (Rd. 18, 549th Overall)- Ranked 191st in Baseball America’s Top 500, scouts have reported Reilly throwing as high as 95 MPH however he usually throws around 89-93 MPH. His secondary stuff is not that great according to scouts but his size and durability should allow him to learn and improve.
  • Dylan Rheault, RHP (Rd. 19, 579th Overall)- The Central Michigan sophomore broke out after his redshirt freshman year finishing with a 2-2 record with 44 strikeouts.  The 6-foot-9, 245-pound right-hander appeared in 15 games in 2013, starting in four, and was 1-4 with a 6.07 ERA in 40 innings of work.

*When the Keys start the second half of the season Friday night at The Grove against Myrtle Beach, Sgt. Slaughter will be here for our annual Fredneck Night. Get your tickets and get excited. Saturday is Scout Night and Sunday is pajama night.

But back to Sgt. Slaughter (I recommend turning the sound down):

*Shake your Keys.

Come to The Grove tonight, you could win a suite

Tim Berry starts for the Keys tonight against Wilmington in what ought to be a game filled with strikeouts. He and Blue Rocks starter Kyle Zimmer are two of the best in the Carolina League when it comes to missing bats.

The Keys open a four-game homestand tonight at 7 p.m. against Wilmington. It’s Casino Night at Harry Grove Stadium, too.

Reasons to come to tonight’s game:

  • Tonight’s pitching matchup – Keys LHP Tim Berry vs. Blue Rocks RHP Kyle Zimmer — has double-digit strikeout potential. Both are top-5 in strikeouts in the Carolina League and Zimmer leads the league in K/9 at 12.41. When these two started opposite one another on April 12, 16 batters walked away with a K after six innings.
  • One fan will win a suite to a future Keys game as part of our Casino Night. We’ll have several special in-game promotions, as well.
  • Zimmer is Kansas City’s top pitching prospect and has been known to throw 99 mph fastballs.
  • The Keys are playing well right now, leading the Northern Division at 18-14 and leading the Carolina League in runs scored.
  • Zane Chavez’s mustache: view it here when he rounds second base after hitting a homer at Winston-Salem.
  • Buy your tickets here, call 301-815-9939 or visit the box office at The Grove.

*Some game notes:

  • WHIFF IT, WHIFF IT GOOD: Tonight’s starters are two of the best strikeout pitchers in the Carolina League. Zimmer leads the league in strikeouts per nine innings, striking out 12.41 batters per nine. Zimmer’s 40 strikeouts are tied for second in the league and Berry’s 38 are fourth.

    FEELIN’ HOT, HOT, HOT: Keys catcher Zane Chavez and second baseman Jerome Pena have been swinging hot bats as of late. Chavez is batting .389 with 13 RBIs in his last nine games, providing some pop in the middle of Frederick’s order. He’s also walked 11 times in the last six games, putting him in second in the Carolina League with 21 free passes on the season. And after a dreadful start to the season, Pena is batting .344 over his last 10 games with two homers and eight RBIs, raising his batting average to .224.

    BORN TO (SCORE) RUN(S): The Keys remain the worst hitting team in the Carolina League by batting average, hitting just .230 as a team, but lead the league in runs scored with 156. Possible explanations for the Keys’ offensive efficiency – they lead the league in walks (156) with 36 more than the teams tied for second and have the second-best OBP in the league (.329). Frederick’s batting .244 with runners in scoring position and have hit 24 homers this season.

The Bundy Effect: putting meat in Carolina League seats

Bundy199

The ace of Frederick’s 2012 staff was slated to pitch for the Orioles this afternoon against the Pirates at their park in Bradenton, Fla., but rain prevented him from taking the mound. Had the game been played, based on the attendance spikes Bundy caused during his starts in the Carolina League, one would have expected a larger than usual crowd, even on a soggy Tuesday afternoon.

The top-rated pitching prospect in baseball, Bundy, one of four Orioles pitchers set to take the mound against Pittsburgh this afternoon, went 6-3 with a 2.84 ERA with the Keys last season, striking out 66 batters in 57 innings.

Average paid attendance for Bundy’s five starts at Harry Grove Stadium was 7,148. His first start in Fredrick, Thursday, May 26, drew 9,833 people to the Grove, the Keys’ season high. Nearly a month later, on Saturday, June 23, 9,477 came to see the Orioles’ 2011 first-round draft pick. On superhero night (Saturday, July 14), 7,583 came to the ballpark, the first 1,000 receiving a Bundy t-shirt, including this Bundy fanatic:

21

Joe Cassitto, otherwise known as Bundy Man

Bundy’s lowest attended home start was his last on Thursday, Aug. 8, when 4,113 came to the Grove. That was his only home start in which attendance dipped below the Keys’ Carolina-League-leading average of 4,724 per contest.

In the five road starts Bundy made in the Carolina League in which attendance was reported (Wilmington and Lynchburg failed to do so in his first starts away from home), teams averaged 5,028 spectators per game.

On July 4 in Potomac, 7,442 fans packed the P-Nats’ park to watch the hard-throwing righty. On July 20 (a Friday), 5,843 fans bought tickets in Winston-Salem. Bundy pitched at Potomac, Winston-Salem, Lynchburg and Wilmington last season.

Of the five games with reported attendance, only once did Bundy fail to exceed a team’s average attendance for the 2012 season — Thusday, June 28 at Winston-Salem. Still, 3,857 fans came to that contest, less than 600 fewer than the Dash’s average of 4,428, which ranked second in the league.

Bundy’s effect on Carolina League crowds was obvious — he made them larger. His effect in the South Atlantic League during his eight starts with Delmarva and in the Eastern league in his three starts with Bowie is less clear, though he likely caused an uptick in weekday attendance at those stops.

Bundy averaged 2,116 fans in all of his starts with Delmarva, all but two of which were weekday games, which typically don’t draw as well as weekend contests (Friday, Saturday or Sunday games).  Five of Bundy’s 10 starts in which paid attendance was reported in the Carolina League came on weekends.

In the SAL, Bundy only exceeded attendance averages twice, both times on the road — at Asheville on opening day and at Hagerstown on Sunday, May 20.

His biggest crowd in Delmarva was 3,056 on Monday, May 14, which is still shy of the Shorebirds average of 3,303 last season. Delmarva’s location on the Eastern Shore may have also kept some Orioles fans away. Portions of that group likely came to Frederick to see the O’s prospect.

In the two starts Bundy made with Bowie in which attendance was reported, he drew crowds of 4,847 on a Monday in Richmond and 2,747 on a Tuesday in Bowie.  Both those numbers are shy of the average figures for those clubs.

Regardless, Bundy’s season in the Carolina League brought fans in big numbers to its minor league ballparks.

Attendance during Bundy’s 2012 starts at Harry Grove Stadium:

5/26 – 9833, 6/14 – 4736, 6/23 – 9477, 7/14 – 7583, 8/8 – 4113

Road attendance in Bundy’s 2012 Carolina League starts:

6/2 @WIL – NA, 6/8 @LYN – NA, 6/28 @WS – 3857, 7/4 @POT – 7442, 7/20 @WS – 5843, 7/26 @WIL – 5289,  8/1 @LYN – 2710

Carolina League 2012 average attendance:

Frederick Keys 4,724
Winston-Salem Dash 4,428
Wilmington Blue Rocks 4,235
Carolina Mudcats 3,418
Myrtle Beach Pelicans 3,273
Potomac Nationals 2,953
Salem Red Sox 2,628
Lynchburg Hillcats 2,426
