Game 28 Preview: Aces vs. Dodgers

Aces hope to dodge rain in Baltimore

Game 28: Alexandria Aces (16-11) vs. Baltimore Dodgers (7-18)
7:00 p.m., Joe Cannon Stadium, Hanover, Md
Probable starters: Austin Dykes (0-0, 3.46) vs. Jake Enterlin (1-1, 1.92)

The Aces will try and continue their hot play, having won four of five, as they travel to Hanover to face the Baltimore Dodgers for the third time this season. The Aces have won the first two and can win the season series with a win in either of their final two contests.

Alexandria downed the Thunderbolts, 11-4, in the first game of what was supposed to be a doubleheader. The second game was suspended due to rain after two innings with no score and it will be completed at a later date. The game one win behind a Korey Anderson complete game moved the Aces to 16-11 and into sole possession of third place in the league.

The Dodgers had a scheduled off day Tuesday after beating the Thunderbolts, 9-6, Monday night for their fourth win in their last 10 games. Overall the Dodgers are 7-18 and are still in last place in the Cal Ripken League.

Austin Dykes will make the start for the Aces. The lefty has appeared in six games, making one start, and holds a 3.46 earned-run average without registering a win or loss. He’s allowed only four earned runs in 10.1 innings, while giving up nine hits and issuing nine walks. He’ll look to continue the recent success for starters, which includes back-to-back complete games.

Last time out

Korey Anderson was effective in his first start for the Aces while the bats caught fire in an 11-4 win over the T-Bolts Tuesday night. The Aces had a 3-0 lead in the top of the fourth, scoring single runs in the first, third, and fourth. They got sac flies from Josh Swirchak and Brad Elwood, and an RBI single from Zack Kessinger. The T-Bolts put together a fourth-inning rally, scoring three times to even the game.

From there the Aces offense turned it up a notch, scoring eight unanswered runs, starting with two in the fifth. Ozzy Gonzalez hit a two-run double to right center to give the Aces the 5-3 lead. In the sixth Swirchak hit an RBI double, Kessinger knocked in two more with a single, and Luke Gibbs drove in two with a single and the Aces grabbed a 10-3 lead. Both teams would score once in the seventh inning of the seven inning game to make it a 11-4 final as Korey Anderson threw a complete game in his first start of the season. He struck out seven and allowed just six hits.

Scouting the Dodgers

The Dodgers are coming in after an off day Tuesday and a win over the Thunderbolts Monday. They are 7-18 on the season, sitting in the basement of the Cal Ripken League standings in their first year in the league.

Part of the issue for the Dodgers has been their offense, which is tied with the Gaithersburg Giants for the fewest runs scored with 81. They have struck out a league-high 208 times as a team and their team batting average of .219 is third worst out of the 11 team Cal Ripken League.

Justin Morales is the Dodgers top hitter. He’s hitting .320 with three home runs and at least 18 RBIs. He hit a grand slam against the Redbirds a few weeks ago in a game that was suspended because of darkness, meaning the stats haven’t been recorded yet. He leads the team in all three of those offensive categories.

Jake Enterlin, a 6-3, 180-lb right hander out of Johns Hopkins will start for the Dodgers. This will be his sixth start of the season for Baltimore and he has a 1-1 record with a 1.92 earned-run average. In 32.2 innings Enterlin has given up just 21 hits, walked 12 and struck out 28, all while allowing just seven earned runs. He has gone at least six innings in every start so far, and he went a season-high eight innings in his last start, June 28 against the D.C. Grays.

Head-to-head

Alexandria has won each of the first two games against the Dodgers, once at home and once on the road. The Aces defeated the Dodgers, 4-2,  in the first match between the teams June 7 at Joe Cannon Stadium. Alexandria scored a run in the fifth, sixth, and seventh to overcome a 2-1 deficit.The second time around it was a 5-2 victory for the Aces June 26 at Frank Mann Field.

They wrap up the season series at Frank Mann Field July 17.

Aces jolt Thunderbolts

Aces offense in high gear before rains wash away Game 2

ALEXANDRIA, VA – The Aces offense struck for 11 runs in seven innings to win the first game of a scheduled doubleheader, 11-4, at Frank Mann Field. The Aces were the visiting team for the first game and cracked out 13 hits en route to the blowout win. This happened before downpours hit Alexandria, suspending the second game of the doubleheader at the end of the second inning with no score.

As the road team the Aces offense wasted little time finding the scoreboard on their home field. Luke Gibbs (UNC Charlotte) led off the ballgame with a single and Brad Elwood (UNC Charlotte) followed with a perfectly executed hit-and-run single through the vacated shortstop hole to set up second and third no outs. A walk loaded the bases and Josh Swirchak (Wilmington) hit a sac fly to give the Aces a 1-0 lead, although that’s all they would get in the inning. Read more

Aces slay Big Train

Sean Thompson throw complete game gem

ALEXANDRIA, VA – Sean Thompson (Texas Tech) gave up just three hits while striking out 11 as he held the Cal Ripken League’s top offense to just two runs in a 5-2 victory. Thompson threw 118 pitches, 81 for strikes, in the complete game effort as the Aces salvaged the final game of the four-game regular season series with the Big Train. The Aces improve to 15-11 on the season, jumping into a third place tie with the Rockville Express.

Thompson’s only shaky inning came in the top of the second. Johnny Cole started the inning with a single and Kevin Tatum followed with an RBI triple. He would score on a sac fly and just like that Bethesda would grab a 2-0 lead in the top of the first. Thompson would go into cruise control the rest of the way, allowing just one more hit and only two more base runners after the second. That gave the Alexandria offense time to get going.
