Hanifee Fires Complete Game Shutout
FREDERICK, MD - Brenan Hanifee tossed a nine-inning complete game shutout, as the Frederick Keys (37-57/8-17) blanked the Salem Red Sox (41-50/16-8) 6-0 on Sunday afternoon at Nymeo Field. Needing just 91 pitches, Hanifee turned in the first complete game shutout by a Keys pitcher since Brady Wager accomplished the feat on August 3, 2013 at Carolina.
Over nine innings, Hanifee (6-9) allowed five hits, struck out four and did not walk a batter in the victory. He did not throw any more than 16 pitches in an inning, while he retired 13 in-a-row at one stretch. It was Hanifee's second complete game of the year and the second complete game shutout by a Keys pitcher this season. Cody Sedlock accomplished the feat on May 4 in Lynchburg, when he threw six shutout innings of two-hit baseball in a rain-shortened affair.
Frederick got on the board in the third inning against Salem right-hander Thaddeus Ward. Sean Miller lined a ball off Ward's pitching hand, while Jean Carrillo walked to put men at first and second. Ward (1-1) started an at-bat against Robbie Thorburn, but after falling behind 2-0, exited for Joan Martinez. He would strike Thorburn out, but Zach Jarrett followed with a three-run homer to put the Keys ahead.
In the fifth, the Keys managed one more run on a bases loaded fielder's choice by Jomar Reyes, while Patrick Dorrian hit a two-run homer off Zach Schellenger in the bottom of the eighth to put Frederick up 6-0. It was Dorrian's first Advanced-A home run.
Ward suffered the loss for Salem, allowing two runs on two hits in two innings. He struck out five and walked two.
The Keys and Red Sox conclude their three-game series on Monday at noon. Left-hander Cameron Bishop (0-7, 4.71) starts for Frederick and will be opposed by Salem left-hander Enmanuel De Jesus (5-6, 4.12).
