A thorough butt-kicking, this one. Two hits both singles, by Jhailyn Ortiz and newly promoted Keaton Markwardt. One caught stealing. No walks. The Wilmington pitchers faced little resistance, saw one batter over the minimum, and struck out 14. Seven of the batting averages in this game were below .200. Three of those were considerably below .100. Must suck to be a pitcher on this team.
