10 Straight RHP

Just noticed this while doing the games notes today.  Melkin Laureano, West Virginia’s starter on Saturday night, marks the 10th straight right-handed starter against Delmarva.  The last lefty starter to face Delmarva was on July 6 when Robbie Erlin of Hickory started.

The streak will go to 11 in a row on Sunday when RHP Phillip Irwin will take the hill for West Virginia. 

The streak will might come to an end in Hickory.  Robbie Erlin is the only left-handed starter for Hickory.  He is pitching tonight (7/17), so he will probably pitch game four of the Delmarva series.  There is an off day on Monday, so it will depend whether they are on a five-man or six-man rotation. 

The ‘Birds are batting .246 on the season against righties.
