Adam Hall’s Delmarva Retain Governor’s Cup

July 8, 2019

Adam Hall and the Delmarva Shorebirds baseball team retained the Governors’ Cup as they defeated the Hagerstown Suns 4-2.

The club’s report said, “The Delmarva Shorebirds clinched the Governors’ Cup for the second consecutive year as they downed the Hagerstown Suns 4-2 on Friday night at Arthur W. Perdue Stadium.

“Nick Vespi [5-4] collected the win for the Shorebirds [12-4, 60-25], throwing five shutout innings. Vespi allowed just three hits and one walk while striking out seven. Since May 18, Vespi has tossed 48.1 innings with a 1.33 ERA and has allowed more than one earned just once.

“Jake Irvin [4-6] was saddled with the loss for the Suns [5-11, 35-51] despite a Quality Start. Irvin threw six innings and allowed three runs on seven hits while striking out three. Reed Hayes allowed an unearned run in the ninth but stranded the bases loaded to earn his first save of the year for the Shorebirds.

“The teams traded goose eggs on the scoreboard for the first four frames until Delmarva broke through in the fifth. Seamus Curran doubled to begin the inning, and after a strikeout, Nick Horvath moved him to third with a single to center.

“A wild pitch moved Horvath to second, and Ryne Ogren capitalized as he ripped a two-run triple to right center, bringing home the first two runs of the game. Adam Hall pushed Ogren across the plate with a sacrifice fly, pushing the Shorebirds ahead 3-0.

“With 12 wins in a maximum of 22 games in the season series, the Shorebirds will retain the Governor’s Cup for the second season in its existence.”
