Pitching Solid Again but ‘Wolves Fall in Richmond

Erie Seawolves
The SeaWolves dropped their second straight game to the Richmond Flying Squirrels, 2-1, on Thursday night at The Diamond.

Richmond broke a scoreless tie in the home half of the fourth against Erie starter Beau Brieske. Brieske had retired nine of the first 10 hitters he faced before giving up a leadoff double to Diego Rincones. David Villar walked putting two on baes for Sandro Fabian. Fabian brought home the only two Squirrels runs of the game as he doubled home both baserunners for a 2-0 lead.

The lone Erie run came in the top of the sixth when Dylan Rosa belted his eighth home run off of Squirrels starter Akeel Morris to make it a 2-1 game.

For the third straight night, the Erie bullpen was rock solid as YaYa Chentouf hurled three scoreless innings in relief of Brieske. The only baserunner Chentouf allowed was on a walk. The pen has allowed only one run over the first 12 innings pitched in the series.

Morris (4-0) earned the win allowing a run on five hits with no walks and seven strikeouts over six innings.

Brieske (1-1) was the tough-luck loser for Erie. He allowed two runs on three hits with a walk and eight strikeouts in five innings. The eight strikeouts were a Double-A high for the Erie right-hander and he fell one strikeout shy of tying a career-high.
