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.

*Tickets are still available for tonight’s game. Buy them here.

Shake your Keys.

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

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:
