Lamb throws another gem, as Blue Rocks take the twin bill.

July 15, 2010

Wilmington, DE – Buddy Baumann and John Lamb, both had fantastic starts tonight in the Carolina League double-header against the leagues best hitting team, the Baltimore Orioles Advanced Class A level, Frederick Keys.

Both Wilmington Blue Rocks lefties did exceptionally well against a very good hitting club. The Blue Rocks won the first game 10-1 and the second game 2-0, making it their first twin bill sweep of the 2010 season.

As noted before, the bats cooled off in the second game substantially, after the big game one outburst, but Wil Myers provided the timely double needed to drive in the only runs.

John Lamb has extended his consecutive scoreless frames to 30 and continues to pile up the strike-outs in the process. Lamb only allowed 1 hit during his 6 innings of work including 8 Ks, 1 BB and hit 1 batter that seemed to excite the Keys dug-out following earlier warnings to both teams. The Keys batter was struck by a 1-2 count curve-ball, which was obviously deemed not intentional by the home plate umpire.

Got the chance to listen to my son’s radio interview following his performance and I was completely taken back by his answers and the maturity in his approach with the media. We continue to be very proud of his second year in professional baseball and truly look forward to his next challenge in 5-6 days.

On a more sincere note –

The Lamb family would like to extend our hearts and prayers to Carlos Fortuna and his family. Fortuna is also a Kansas City Royals minor league player that is undergoing diagnosis and treatment in Phoenix, AZ. We hope you have a speedy recovery Carlos and look forward to seeing you at the ballpark soon.
