Around the Minors for Sunday, April 14

Coming soon? - USA TODAY Sports

Excitement! Minor League Baseball!

Norfolk 2, Gwinnett 1: Russ Canzler, Ladies and Gentlemen. The well-traveled corner infielder had a double, triple and a walk serving as Norfolk's DH. If only the Orioles needed a DH...L.J. Hoes also doubled while Trayvon Robinson walked and stole a base. Robinson in slashing .321/.424/.500 and has reached base in every game he's played. Jonathan Schoop was charged with an error and was caught stealing.

Every pitcher taking the mound for the Tides was acquired within the last two weeks. Josh Stinson went 6.2 innings without allowing an earned run, Alex Burnett pitched a scoreless 1.1 innings and Scott Proctor showed some improvement over his Tides debut, but little else.

Of note: IF/OF Conor Jackson announced his retirement

Bowie 9, Akron 5: The X-Man continued his hot streak with a double and a walk, but showed that he's still the X-Man by striking out twice, getting thrown out trying to steal and also getting charged with an error. He shouldn't feel too bad on that count, though, as all three Baysox attempting to steal were thrown out (and Garabez Rosa also earned the dubious distinction of getting caught stealing and charged with an error). You don't run on Jeremy Lucas...I guess. Johnny Ruettiger had two hits and a walk, but continues to be best known for being Rudy Ruettiger's nephew.

Mike Wright was unable to make it out of the 5th inning, but as was alluded to above, he received little help from his defense (in addition to Avery and Rosa, Buck Britton was also charged with an error). Clay Schrader vultured a win, holding the Aeros scoreless over 2.1 innings.

Of note: Garabez Rosa has 7 errors.

Frederick 6, Wilmington 3: Glynn Davis and Nick Delmonico each had two walks and Connor Narron hit a home run. Davis also stole a base. Brenden Webb singled and struck out.

Zach Davies turned in a solid performance, striking out 4 in 5 innings and inducing seven groundouts. Trent Howard had another nice relief outing allowing two baserunners and striking out two in 2 innings.

Of note: Nick Delmonico's OBP this season is .531; Steve Melewski noted yesterday that Trent Mummey will be undergoing hamstring surgery with an expected recovery time of 6-8 weeks (if you haven't seen this piece yet, check it out...also tidbits on Adrian Marin and Hammerin Hank Urrutia)

Delmarva 4, Hagerstown 6: Old Mill alum Josh Hader continued his early season success striking out 4 and allowing 5 baserunners in 5 innings. Opponents have scored one earned run in Hader's two starts. Kevin Jacob, another local boy, had a different experience as he was charged with 4 earned runs in .1 innings.

Every Shorebird except Nik Balog reached base. Christian Walker hit his second home run of the season and walked twice extending his on base streak to 10 games. Wynston Sawyer and Creede Simpson also doubled, while Joel Hutter and Anthony Vega each had a pair of hits.

Of note: Sawyer, Simpson and Walker are all slugging over .500.
