I didn’t take as much video tonight because I was trying to take as many pictures as I could before the sun went down of the Wilmington Blue Rocks in their Star Wars jerseys.
I did take the first batter of the game (Salem shortstop Mauricio Dubon) against Blue Rocks starter Zach Lovvorn.
It was my first time seeing Lovvorn pitch, and though he struggled over the first two innings (four runs on six hits), he settled down to last five innings.
Evan Beal entered in relief in the sixth and threw three perfect innings. Below are the three batters Beal faced in the 6th inning.
