Senators 6, Baysox 0
• Christian Garcia, Blake Treinen, and Aaron Barrett combined for the Senators’ fifth shutout of the season as they blanked the Baysox 6-0. Treinen picked up the win, his fifth, with 6.2 innings of solid work. He wasn’t overpowering (as the six hits and only two strikeouts show), but he was efficient and effective pitching with the lead. “He’s making really big strides and he keeps improving every time out,” LeCroy on Treinen, “He makes some pretty good hitting teams look bad.”
• Garcia started for the second time in three games and tossed two scoreless inning as part of his rehab. The righthander allowed one hit and walked two, but struck out four.
• It looked like the couple of days off did a world of good for Brian Goodwin at the plate. After the off-day on Monday, Goodwin sat out Tuesday’s game due to illness and getting away might have been the best thing for the struggling outfielder. Goodwin went 2 for 4 with two runs scored and perhaps more importantly for his confidence and approach was a double down the leftfield line on an 0-2 pitch. “He’s trying to carrying what he’s working on before the game into the game,” LeCroy on the work Goodwin has put in, “(I’ve been) just trying to stress to him the importance of putting the ball in play with two strikes.”
• Prior to the game, Paul Demny was assigned to Syracuse and started for the Chiefs against the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RoughRiders. Demny had a tough outing as he allowed seven runs on nine hits through five innings and was tagged with the loss. Caleb Clay will just move up a day in the rotation for the Senators and make the start on Thursday night.
• Recently promoted reliever Ian Krol struck out the side after giving up a leadoff double during his MLB debut for the Nationals on Wednesday night.
