BARNSTORMERS HEAD HOME AFTER SERIES WIN

Lancaster Tops High Point, 4-1

Brent Teller gave the Lancaster Barnstormers 6 1/3 innings in a strong start on Thursday as the Barnstormers captured the rubber game of a series against the High Point Rockers, 4-1, at Truist Point.

The win left the Barnstormers as one of three clubs five games over .500 in the North in the second half race, joining York and Southern Maryland.

Teller (7-4) yielded four hits and one run over his evening.  The right-hander walked on and struck out four.  High Point’s only run came on a single behind second base by Dai-Kan Yoh that scored D.J. Burt from third in the fourth inning.

Manager Ross Peeples used Zach Warren, Nick Duron and Mike Adams to pick up the final eight outs with Adams earning his fourth save.

Scheduled High Point starter Ryan Weiss was scratched, and the Rockers went with Major League veteran Neil Ramirez (1-1) who is working his way back from injury with his second short appearance.  Ramirez went the first two innings but allowed a leadoff homer by Chad Sedio in the second.

The Barnstormers would add two runs in the third off Jeremy Rhoades.  Trace Loehr was hit by a pitch to open the inning and headed toward third on a single by Melvin Mercedes.  John Daly’s throw from right field rolled through the infield enabling Loehr to score and Mercedes to go to second.  Mercedes eventually scored on a single into center by Andretty Cordero.

Sedio doubled into the right field corner with two outs in the eighth.  He would score an insurance tally on Wilson Garcia’s single to center.

The Barnstormers will entertain the Staten Island FerryHawks at 6:30 on Friday as the club opens a six-game homestand at Clipper Magazine Stadium.  Fans not in attendance can follow the action on FloBaseball beginning at 6:25.

NOTES:  Cordero extended his hitting streak to 15 games, tying Joseph Carpenter for the longest on the club this season…It was the lowest scoring game for the Barnstormers in the second half…The Barnstormers still managed 30 hits in the series…Yeison Coca stole two more bases and is now 18-for-18 on the year…Teller’s quality start was his club-leading sixth.
