Lamb’s last teenage outing was another good one!

July 9, 2010

Lynchburg, VA – Three Wilmington Blue Rocks pitchers joined on a shut out performance to make a clean sweep of the Lynchburg Hillcats series and allowing only four hits. John Lamb, Harold Mozingo and Barry Bowden kept the Hillcats from scoring despite the threat when Lamb was pulled from the game with a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the sixth inning with no outs and two runners on base.

Nick Francis, Jarrod Dyson, Christian Colon and, the legitimate youngster of the team, Wil Myers drove in all the Rocks runs. Timely hitting, solid defense and good pitching again prove to be the simple formula to win baseball games even with a little moisture falling from the sky.

Although the Blue Rocks bats were much cooler than last night, they proved more than adequate in helping Wilmington meet a 43-43 record. The Rocks finished their road trip with a 5-2 mark and sole possession of first place.

With John Lamb turning 20 tomorrow, he finished his teenage professional baseball stats on a high note by picking up his fifth win in the ten starts since being called up to the, Advanced Class A level, Carolina League. Lamb tossed 75% of his 72 pitches for strikes while allowing 3 hits, 0 runs, 1 walk and striking out 4.

The Blue Rocks return home for an eight-day home stand and a day off between the next two series. They will play Myrtle Beach for three games starting tomorrow and a four game series against Frederick following a day off the schedule.
