Aug. 10 Spikes pregames notes

Aberdeen IronBirds (18-33) at State College Spikes (21-31)

When: 7:05 p.m. tonight

Where: Medlar Field at Lubrano Park

Pitching matchup: A -- Tyler Wilson (0-0, 2.25); SC -- Nick Kingham (2-2, 2.80)

Notes: Wilson helped Virginia reach the College World Series semifinals. He made 16 starts and went 10-0 with a 2.24 ERA for the Cavaliers. The Baltimore Orioles drafted him in the 10th round and he pitched four scoreless innings in his professional debut last week at Lowell. Kingham has taken a different route to professional baseball, bypassing college to sign with the Pirates after being selected in last year’s fourth round. Kingham has allowed one or no runs in eight of his 10 starts this season. The Spikes are hitting .262 and averaging six runs in their past 10 games. Samuel Gonzalez (.391), Wes Freeman (.381), Matt Skirving (.367) and Kirk Singer (.304) are hitting above .300 during the stretch.
