Potomac-Wilmington (1st inning): Michael Martinez starts it off for Potomac with a fly ball to centerfield. Daniel Lyons, one of the Potomac heroes thus far, strikes out on a called third strike. Andrew LeFave, batting third, also watches strike three, as he sits down for out #3. The Wilmington pitcher, Edward Teaford, pitched 144.1 innings this season and struck out 116, while walking 46. He has already struck out two Potomac batters.
Detwiler has faced Wilmington 5 times this season and has 2-0 record with a 1.38 ERA against them. Randy Knorr, the P-Nats manager said that "tonight we will find out if Detwiler is a big game pitcher." Wilmington is located in Delaware and should see some effects of the hurricane tomorrow. Detwiler quickly puts away the first two Blue Rock batters, then walks the third batter. After getting in a 2-2 count, Detwiler lets a chopper up to third. The ball takes a nasty hop on Stephen King and the batter makes it to base, runners on 1st + 2nd. Former second round pick, Jeff Bianchi, is walked by Detwiler to load the bases. Detwiler is struggling in this inning and is getting behind in the count too much. Kurt Mertins grounds to Michael Martinez for an easy out #3 and Detwiler manages to somehow escape unscathed. Ozzie Rodriguez was warming up during that inning, presumably in case Detwiler really blew it.
Due up for the P-Nats: Dee Brown-Mike Rogelstad-Stephen King
