In game three of the Fredericksburg Nationals versus the Down East Wood Ducks, Emiliano Teodo started the game on the bump for the Wood Ducks with a 3.39 ERA entering the night. He started the night off with a vengeance, retiring the first twelve batters he faced, racking up three strikeouts in the third, two in the third, and two in the fourth before letting one on for the Nationals via a walk to lead off the fifth. Teodo didn’t allow the runner to advance any further on the basepaths by striking out the side on the next three batters, ending his night with 74 pitches in five innings of work along with ten strikeouts and one walk, improving his ERA to 3.13.
The Woodies also had a good night on the offensive side of the ball with seven hits, putting up five runs, four of which were in three consecutive innings . In the second, Yosy Galan was hit by a pitch, sacrifice over to second by Marcus Smith, Ian Moller smacked a single past the third baseman, Witt, and with Abi Ortiz up at the plate, Galan scored on an RBI groundout to third. The Woodies added two more in the third, as Zion Bannister reached on a fielding error and Maximo Acosta made the defense pay by sending a ball over the left field wall for a two run home run, putting the Woodies up 3-0. The Woodies added one more in the fourth and another later in the seventh, with Moller scoring on a sac fly by Bannister and Maximo Acosta driving in another run as Bannister came around to score. Acosta, Moller, and Pena all had multi-hit games with two each on three at bats.
Jose Corniell, who took over out of the pen for Teodo in the sixth, impressed by throwing 4.0 innings, only giving up 3 hits, 2 walks and tallied 3 strikeouts completing the shutout for the Woodies pitching staff in a 5-0 win and Corniell earned his third save of the season.
