Waldorf, MD - The High Point Rockers did what they could to try and make something happen against the Blue Crabs but it wasn’t in their cards. The Rockers would drop one to the Blue Crabs in a rain-shortened game that saw 8.5 innings played.
The game remained scoreless for three innings, when Rubi Silva would double on a line drive to center field bringing in Myles Falsetti. Falsetti would single on a ground ball to left field, allowing Cory Vaughn to put the Blue Crabs up by two. The Rockers started to rally in the top of the fifth inning, as Brett Austin would score on a ground out by Michael Baca.
In the bottom of the fifth, Frank Martinez would hit a double on a line drive to left field, as Silva would score. In the top of the seventh inning however, Tyler Ladendorf would hit his seventh home run of the season. With the score tied at 3-3, the Blue Crabs would score one final run before the game was called due to weather.
Ryan Chaffee would pick up his first win of the season while Tyler Runion would be handed the loss against his former team. The Rockers return home Friday May 31st at 7PM to take on the New Britain Bees for our Beatlemania Night.
