Lancaster 19, Staten Island 5

If the Lancaster Barnstormers experienced any doldrums the night after wrapping up the second half North title, they did not last long.

Lancaster scored a season-high 19 runs, knocking out 22 hits, in a 19-5 romp over the Staten Island FerryHawks, as the ‘Stormers won for the 10th straight time at Clipper Magazine Stadium.

The win brought the Barnstormers to a .500 record (62-62) on the season.

Two unearned runs scored off Jared Lakind (9-4) in the top of the first, and the Barnstormers left the bases loaded in the bottom of the inning.

From there, the Barnstormers partied for the second straight night.

Shawon Dunston, Jr. opened the second with a line drive homer off Nick Beardsley (2-7).  Anthony Peroni followed with a double, but the true barrage happened with two outs.  Ariel Sandoval lined an RBI double to the gap in right center.  Chad Sedio drove home two with a triple to deep right center as Lancaster surged ahead, 4-2.  Sedio scored when Trayvon Robinson doubled down the right field line.

The attack continued into the third when Trace Loehr and Melvin Mercedes cracked one-out singles and scored on a two-run triple to left center by Chris Proctor.  Lancaster made it 8-3 on a sac fly by Sandoval before Sedio and Robinson unloaded consecutive home runs off two different pitchers.

By the time the night ended, everyone in the Lancaster lineup had at least two total bases.  The team slapped around 22 hits, including six doubles, two triples and the three homers.  Sedio had a shot at the cycle but missed the single, instead walking twice.  Robinson had one of his biggest nights in six seasons as a Barnstormer, going 5-for-6 with five RBI.

Lakind worked long enough to earn the win, allowing six hits and five runs in his five innings.  The lefty walked three and struck out six.  Three relievers, Bret Clarke, Chandler Brierley and Garrett Granitz combined to toss four hitless innings.

The Barnstormers will send right-hander Dominic DiSabatino (5-8) to the hill on Sunday afternoon against right-hander Ryan Mitschele (0-2).  The team will sign autographs from 12:00-12:20.  Fans may tune in on FloBaseball, beginning at 12:55.

NOTES:  The 22 hits was one shy of the team’s season-high, set in the first game of the second half…Lancaster rested SS Yeison Coca, 3B Andretty Cordero and 1B Wilson Garcia…Robinson had the second five-hit game by a Barnstormer this season…Cordero had the other in that July 8 contest against Spire City…The 10-game winning streak at home is one shy of last year’s 11-game skein early in the second half.


High Point 7, Long Island 3

Quincy Latimore’s two-run homer to left in the fifth put the Rockers back on top 4-2. High Point tacked on their fifth run in the seventh on a wild pitch that scored Ben Aklinski. Sam Travis closed the gap to two in the eighth with a two-out RBI double down the left field line, but a wild pitch that scored Latimore and an RBI single by Brian Parreira in the ninth pushed High Point’s advantage to 7-3.
