Box Score · Clippers fall to 18-9

Bryan Lavastida was the lone Clipper to have a multi-hit game, going 2-3. The recently reactivated Tyler Freeman doubled, which hopefully is a sign his bat is waking up.

Box Score · RubberDucks fall to 11-13
Starting pitcher Tanner Burns threw a lot of pitches and was out of the game in the fourth inning, but he still was effective. Burns whiffed five, walked two and allowed one run on two hits in 3.2 innings.
He got no help from the bullpen, however, as Kevin Coulter allowed his inherited runner to score, then gave up three more hits and walked two more without getting an out, which led to a five-run fourth inning, all with two outs.
Brayan Rocchio went 2-4 with a double and both Julian Escobedo and Micah Pries both doubled. Daniel Schneemann stole a pair of bases in the loss.

Starting pitcher Will Dion had a unique day, allowing four runs, but none were earned on three hits, one walk and a pair of strikeouts in 4.0 innings. Trey Benton picked up the save with a scoreless seventh inning.
In game two, Bartlett homered again, which accounted for all of Lynchburg’s offense.
It's game 2 and it's another HR for Will Bartlett as he hits a solo shot in the bottom of the 4th getting the Hillcats on the board. 2-homer day for Bartlett!#FutureGuardians pic.twitter.com/pqNrDBZUBa— Future Guardians of THE LAND (@FutureGOTL) May 6, 2022
