In-Game Updates (LIVE from the ballpark):

The umpire briefly stopped the game to pick up a hot dog wrapper or plate that was floating around inbetween the mound and the plate.  On the next pitch, Rich Giannotti crushed a 1-2 Thompson pitch over the right field wall…one of about 4379857348573498 home runs expected tonight; the wind is blowing out.

1-0, Blue Crabs, heading into B1.

Make that 2-0, Blue Crabs, now in the top of the 2nd…Christian Lopez got hit with the bases loaded and one out.  Now Giannotti is up again…this one could get away quickly.

GREAT play by Joe Burke to save a run…he made a diving stop on Giannotti’s grounder to the right side, and Southern Maryland only scored one on the play.  Still though, it’s 3-0…

No fireworks from the Somerset offense so far, and none after the game, either…the team has postponed the fireworks show due to excessive wind speeds.  Fans at the game were offered complimentary tickets to one of three future games.

Thompson is at just 42 pitches through four innings…but he got knocked around a bit in the first two frames.

Pete LaForest with an RBI double…Tim Raines, Jr. drives in two on an error…all of a sudden, we’re tied 3-3, bottom 4.

The game has been suspended due to high wind conditions.  Seriously.  Amazing.

Ben Grezlovski has picked up the game for Somerset in the 6th.  It has not gone well.  Southern Maryland is up 5-3 heading into the bottom of the 6th.  Mike Thompson, who isn’t even here, would get the loss if things keep up…

Grezlovski out after 2 2/3…Matt Reilly in.  It’s now 6-3.
