BARNSTORMERS ROLL TO NINTH STRAIGHT

Cordero, Feliz Lead Club to 10-6 Victory

Andretty Cordero went 4-for-5, and Anderson Feliz drove in four runs as the Lancaster Barnstormers rolled to a 10-6 victory at Clipper Magazine Stadium early Sunday evening.

It was Lancasterā€™s ninth straight win and kept the Barnstormers 3 Ā½ games ahead of Southern Maryland in the North and even with the Wild Health Genomes in a potential wild card race.

In the bottom of the first, Melvin Mercedes led off with a single and Cordero followed with a double off the gate in right center.  Jacob Barfield produced the first run with a sacrifice fly, and Feliz built a 3-0 lead off Francisco Carrillo (0-2, 0-5) with his sixth homer of the season.

Cordero doubled home Trace Loehr in the second for a 4-0 lead and singled Loehr home in the fourth as the advantage stretched to 5-1.  Trayvon Robinson singled home a run later in the fourth, and the Barnstormers salted the game away with a four-run sixth.  Loehr again the uprising started, this time with a single to left center.  He took second on an infield out, stole third and rode home on Corderoā€™s single to right.  Following a walk of Barfield and Robinson being hit by a pitch, Feliz drilled a double past third base to cap Lancasterā€™s scoring.

Cameron Gann (6-8) gave Lancaster a solid five-inning start, yielding only one hit, a first inning single by Angel Aguilar.  Staten Island scored in the third on a walk, wild pitch, passed ball and a sacrifice fly by Antoine Duplantis.

The Ferryhawks had a better evening against the Lancaster bullpen.  Andres Noriega singled home a run in the seventh.  Two more crossed in the eighth, one on a Chase Johnson wild pitch, the other on a sacrifice fly by Rusney Castillo.  Alfredo Reyes clubbed a two-run homer in the ninth, his first of the year, before Donald Goodson finally ended the game with a strikeout of Aguilar.

Lancaster will host the Long Island Ducks in a three-game series starting on Tuesday.  Oscar De La Cruz (6-1) will make the start for the Barnstormers against right-hander Scott Harkin (8-6) on Foodie Tuesday.  Fans may tune into Blue Ridge 11 or the Barnstormers YouTube Channel, starting at 6:30.
