Norfolk lost 8-2. Mike Belfiore gave up 1 ER in 2.2 IP on 3 hits and 2 walks, striking out 4 with a GB/FB of 0/4. It is interesting to me that they are stretching out a guy who likely profiles as a LOOGY. Jon Rauch debuted with a scoreless, hitless inning, recording a K/BB of 1/1. LJ Hoes goes 0-4. Xavier Avery went 1-3 with a single and a SB. Brandon Wood went 0-3 with a sac fly.

Frederick won a wild one, 7-6. The bullpen would blow a 2 run lead in the 9th and then give up a run in the tenth, though the Keys would comeback with 2 in the bottom of the 10th, courtesy of back to back homers. Zach Davies gave up 2 ER in 5 IP on 7 hits, striking out 4, walking none with a GB/FB of 6/1. Recently promoted RHP Miguel Chalas went 3 scoreless yielding a hit, striking out 2, walking none with a GB/FB of 4/1.

Brenden Webb went 0-4 with a K.
Delmarva lost 7-5. Matt Taylor, a fringy prospect with a solid ERA, was removed after 2 IP after allowing 1 ER on 1 hit and 3 walks, striking out 1.
