I'm thinking that series has a 4 day rain delay at some point.

What's the likelihood of this series happening with the incoming hurricane apocalypse?

Buies Creek Astro’s walk off against Potomac to win a one game series for the Mills Cup. They shortened it due to Florence. Final score was 2-1

Highlights from the first games yesterday as it may relate to the MLB squad:
AAA Reliever Derek Self 2⅓ IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, K, 3-0 IR-S. He's had a pretty nice minor league career. Doesn't K a ton, apparently he's fastball 88-91, cutter 86-88, and a pretty good changeup.
AA Aaron Barrett 1IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, K
AAA Nuño (W, 1-0) 1IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 0K

Fedde, Mills, and Barrett combine on a no-hitter for Harrisburg tonight. That team is on a roll, now 7-1

Went to the Hagerstown Suns home opener last night. Suns had a 5 run 1st, and went from there to an 8-2 win over the Asheville Tourists (Rockies). It’s only one game, but a few things I noticed:

They had good at bats, not only hitting, but patience.  At one point with the bases loaded, the Suns 3B (Gilbert Lara) had the patience to draw a bases-loaded walk, instead of trying to be a big hero and swinging for the fences. Kyle Merinconz was impressive with two hard hit doubles.

Relief pitcher Carson Teel looked good, with 5 strike outs over 2.2 innings, with 1 earned run.

The Suns also took advantage of a couple of Asheville mental errors (overthrowing a base, missing the cut off man) with some heads up base running.

Every Thursday game is a Thirsty Thursday, with several brands of 16oz beers going for only $3.   I myself enjoyed a couple Yeunglings at that price. :)  Twelve ounce cans of brands like Bud and a Miller Lite are $2, so Thursdays have some good beer bargains.

Sadly the ballpark itself is still pretty crummy, although it appears that the bathrooms under the grandstand at least got a good power washing in the off season. Food selection is also pretty limited. But prices are cheap, the staff is cheerful, parking is plentiful and free, and it’s a night of baseball.

Not sure what’s worse. That they rank the Nationals #27 or Barves still being number 2 after all the prospects already promoted.

Via Zuck: “Double-A Harrisburg pitcher Steven Fuentes has been suspended 50 games after testing positive for a stimulant in violation of the minor league drug prevention and treatment program.”
