Wilmington-Potomac (bottom of the 9th):  The P-Nats have had just one walk-off HR all season (April 10th) by the first batter of this inning, Matt Rogelstad.  Unfortunately, he can't produce the magic today and grounds out to third.  Dee Brown, 0-3 in this game and on a 5 game hitting streak, singles into right field.  The Blue Rocks bring in a left handed, Swaganey (2.19 ERA vs lefties) pitcher to face Potomac left handers Plasencia and Burgess.  Plancensia pops out for out #2.  Burgess is hit by the pitcher, but the Ump calls it as a foul ball.  Burgess is furious and manager Randy Knorr comes out to prevent Burgess from getting ejected.  The P-Nat fans show their displeasure.  Burgess follows up with a swinging strikeout.  We are going to the top of the 10th.

Closer Josh Wilkie has been warming up in the P-Nats bullpen.

For those that are wondering, Erik Arnesen gets the start tomorrow for the P-Nats (4-3, 4.46 ERA).
