    I knew after going against Erie for a third time that I had to flip the script on them. So we worked backwards a lot and that was why I was able to sneak fastballs by a lot of guys and go in late, but credit to Carlos Perez he called a damn good game. I guess big league time really does mean [something].

FREDERICK KEYS (15-17) POSTPONED WITH FAYETTEVILLE – A (ADV.)

A DH is scheduled for 5/11.
