It’s extra innings here at Ripken Stadium.
In his fifth at bat, with a chance to win the game in the last of the ninth, Brandon Snyder flew out to center on a 2-1 pitch with runners on second and third and two out. The game is tied 5-5 heading to the top of the 10th.
Snyder’s solo homer in the last of the 8th had tied this game at 5-5. He is 2 for 5 with two RBI tonight as he begins what is expected to be a three-game injury rehab assignment with the IronBirds.
Catcher Joe Oliveira, batting eighth, drew a walk to leadoff the ninth on a 3-1 pitch from righty Brandt Walker. Michael Rooney then dropped a sac bunt, advancing Oliveira to second and Trent Mummey was then walked intentionally. After Austin Knight struck out, Snyder came up.
The runners advanced to second and third on a wild pitch before Snyder’s fly out.
That is it tonight for Snyder as David Anderson has come on to play first base in the tenth for the IronBirds.
