Hall Helps Delmarva Win Big Over Lakewood BlueClaws

Adam Hall and his Delmarva Shorebirds teammates rediscovered the form that has made them the best team in Minor League Baseball, crushing the Lakewood BlueClaws 7-0 at FirstEnergy Park.

Delmarva opened their scoring barrage in the top of the third. Cody Roberts singled with one out, then Nick Horvath hit into a fielder's choice. Hall followed by legging out an infield hit, and Adley Rutschman walked to load the bases. Johnny Rizer attacked a first-pitch fastball and pounded a single into right, scoring Horvath and Hall to get the Shorebirds on the board at 2-0.

Now up 4 – 0 Hall singled to lead off the fifth and promptly stole second base. Rutschman battled Gilmael Troya to work the count full, then on the ninth pitch of the at-bat Rutschman blasted a no-doubt two-run homer to right, his first with Delmarva and third of the season, to get the Shorebird lead to 6-0. Rutschman's moonshot was clocked at 105 mph off the bat and traveled 372 feet.

Rutschman, a former college kicker at Oregon State, helped the Shorebirds kick the extra point in the eighth. Seamus Curran singled to lead off, and Roberts drew a walk. Two batters later Hall got hit by a pitch to load the bases, and Rutschman lofted a flyball to left for a sac fly, scoring Curran to give the game its final 7-0 margin.

Delmarva banged out 13 hits on the night on the way to its seven runs. Hall provided a spark in the leadoff slot, going 2-for-3 with two runs and a stolen base on the way to his 43rd multi-hit game.
