Salisbury, MD - The Delmarva Shorebirds and Hagerstown Suns will square off in a doubleheader at Arthur W. Perdue Stadium on Wednesday evening. The doubleheader will consist of two seven-inning games, with first pitch for game one scheduled for 5:05 pm.
The probable starting pitching matchup for game one will feature two of the top prospects in the South Atlantic League. Hunter Harvey (1-0, 1.64) starts for Delmarva in his third outing of the season. The Baltimore Orioles selected Harvey in the 1st round (22nd overall) in last year's MLB Draft. Coming into the season, multiple publications ranked Harvey as the 4th-best prospect in the Orioles' farm system.
Meanwhile, Nationals' top pitching prospect Lucas Giolito (1-0, 3.38) will start for the Suns. Giolito was also a 1st round pick, as he was selected 16th overall by the Washington Nationals in the 2012 MLB Draft. The right-hander has been ranked as the best prospect in the Nationals' farm system, and he has been listed in the top 50 prospects in all of baseball.
Game two will start approximately 30 minutes after the conclusion of game one. Left-hander Steven Brault (1-1, 7.20) will get the ball for Delmarva against Suns' right-hander Austin Voth (0-1, 3.72).
