Weekend Recap – Games 29-31

May 7, 2012

I was out-of-town for most of the weekend, so let us catch up on how the Flying Squirrels did over the weekend.

Game 1 box score. Game 2 box score.

Game 1:
Chris Heston and Nathan Barker get into a pitchers duel in the first game, and unfortunately neither would be a part of the decision. Heston was sparkling through six innings  giving up four hits, walking two, and striking out five. Brett Bochy picked up his second win of the season working two more great innings out of the bullpen. He did not give up a hit or a walk, and struck out two.

Gary Brown went 1-for-4 driving in the eventual game winner in the eighth inning. Daniel Mayora added two hits of his own and Chris Dominguez would pick up an outfield assist by cutting down Brock Holt at home.

Game 2:
Andy Reichard got the start in the second game and unlike his multi-inning relief outing the other night, he had a less than stellar outing. He went in with a set pitch count of 65 and he would not reach that. In three innings of work he allowed three runs on four hits (one home run) and a walk. Daryl Maday got three solid innings of work in relief and did his part to keep the game close and he would give up one hit and strike out four.

Shairon Martis kept the Richmond bats at bay for most of the game. Chris Dominguez, Daniel Mayora, Johnny Monell, and Andy Reichard would be the only Richmond batters to get a hit. As a team, Richmond went 1-for-8 with RISP.

Michael Kickham took the hill for Richmond Sunday and was good early, but then would hit the wall in the fourth and fifth. He struggled with his control through the first few innings and got the groundballs he needed, but his control would catch up with him soon enough. In his 4.2 innings of work he allowed three runs on five hits, four walks, and two strikeouts. He threw 85 pitches, 48 for strikes. Jake Dunning worked 1.1 scoreless innings, giving up two hits. Tom Vessella also got multiple innings of work. In his 1.2 innings he allowed one run on three hits and one walk. Ari Ronick finished out the last third of an inning for Richmond.

Gary Brown collected two hits and a stolen base on the day. Daniel Mayora, Johnny Monell, and Michael Kickham added hits.
