Schooping out a basehit - Elaina Ellis/Norfolk Tides

Catch up with all the O's minor league action from Saturday

Rochester (Twins) 2, Norfolk 3 (Final 12 Innings)

(SS) Jonathan Schoop had an interesting day. 2-6 at the dish, including the game-winning RBI single. He also had an RBI Double, K'd 3 times, and committed 2 throwing errors. (CF) Chris Dickerson treated him self to 2 hits in 6 at-bats, including a Double, and scored the game winning run. ( C ) Chris Snyder allowed 2 PBs, but evened the ledger somewhat by picking off 2 baserunners. (RHP) Freddy Garcia continues to make a case for another shot in the Majors: 5 innings, 1 hit, 0 walks, 0 runs, 7 Ks. Not sure why he was pulled after just 60 pitches, but my guess would be this was a planned tandem start with (RHP) Steve Johnson. Spawn came on to work 3 innings, yielding 2 hits, 2 walks and 0 runs, while K'ing 3.

Bowie 9, Portland (Red Sox) 6

(RHP) Tyler Wilson got the start but he didn't have a spectacular outing as he failed to make it into the 7th for the first time since July 8th. 5 innings, 7 hits (5 singles, 1 double, 1 triple), 2 walks, 4 runs (3 earned), 3 Ks, and 1 wild pitch for Wilson on the night. Not a terrible outing. It'll happen. However, the offense had his back as they managed to put up 4-spots in both the 3rd and 9th. (CF) Trayvon Robinson is itching to get back to AAA, as he has put up a .314 / .385 / .514 slash-line over the past 10 games. 2-3 tonight, with a BB and a SB for him. ( C ) Caleb Joseph and (3B) Brandon Waring had a hit and a walk apiece. While Joseph managed to nail 1 of 3 steal attempts. (DH) Brian Ward put up a 1-3 effort. (1B) Christian Walker continues to not play. Gotta ask SteveO what's up with that.

Carolina (Indians) 4, Frederick 12

Man, oh man, (RHP) Zach careful with my heart. 7 innings on the night. Just 2 hits (1 HR) and 1 run allowed. He did walk 4, plunk 1, and threw 2 pickoffs away for errors though. But he also K'd 5. I can just see that change up dancing in my memory. So pretty. Over his last 2 outings: 13 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 6 BBs, 13 Ks. This little Achiever has a bright future ahead of him. (LHP) Ashur Tolliver had a rough go of it tonight. After a breezy 1-2-3 in the 8th he was touched up for 4 hits, 1 walk, and 3 earned runs in the 9th. A minor blip, however. He has shined over the course of his tenure with Frederick's 'pen so far this season, having yielded but 2 runs over 18 innings previous to tonight.

Carolina pitching didn't have it tonight, as they walked 10. (CF) Glynn Davis drew 3 of those, showing my previously stated low opinion of his strikezone judgement may have been faulty. He also swiped 2 bags. Put that 80 Grade speed to use, Glynn! (RF) John Ruetigger also drew 2 walks and swiped his organizational leading 34th bag of the season. Filling in a DH tonight, Michael Ohlman put up a 2-4, with a Double and a Walk. He may not be hitting for as much power as he was a month or so ago, but he has now drawn 7 walks to 8 Ks over his last 10 games. Good eye, kiddo. An over-.400 OBP will take you places.

Delmarva 9, Kannapolis (White Sox) 6

(RHP) Parker Bridwell looked to bounce back after a shoddy start last Monday. And he did just that, to a degree. Only 5 innings. And the 8 hits allowed is less than ideal, particularly when a number of them are categorized as 'liners'. But of the 4 runs Parker allowed, just 2 were Earned. His Jake Arrieta-ness shown once again, this time in the 3rd inning. After getting a ground out and a K he allowed 3 consecutive line drive singles. Each batter would eventually score, though 2 of them scored by the allowance of throwing errors, one by the RFer and one by the C. The more encouraging part of the night for Parker was getting 6 Ks in 5 innings while walking just 2. If he can learn to keep a lid on the bad innings he'll have and not let them spiral out of control he'll find a great deal more success going forward. (RHP) Mychal Givens came on in the 9th and allowed 2 runs via 2 walks and 1 hit.

(CF) Gregory Lorenzo continues to wow as a lead off hitter. I suppose he's getting more fastballs to see? Well, if so he's doing damage to them. 3-5 tonight with 3 runs scored, but amazingly, no SBs. The strikezone judgement is still a legit concern, as he K's frequently while not drawing Walks. But he is demonstrating some healthy contact skills at the moment. (2B) Torston Boss thumped once again: 3-5, with a Double and 3 RsBI. It'll be interesting to see what he can do in Frederick next season. The same can be said of (LF) Creede Simpson. He also went reached base 3 times tonight via 2 hits and a Walk. Batting 2nd, (SS) Adrian Marin went 0-3, w/ 2 Sac Bunts.

Aberdeen 0, Batavia (Marlins) 1

Pitchers duel in northwest New York tonight. (LHP) Mitch Horachek continues to dominate NYPL hitters. 8 IP, 3 H, 0 BBs, 0 R, 1 K. He sports a 26:2 K:BB ratio over 44.0 IP of 2.25 ERA pitching. Pretty neat. The Ironbirds were unfortunately held to just 2 baserunners on the night. And both times the base runner was (3B) Hector Veloz, who went 1-2, with 1 BB and 1 K. He also managed to steal a base.

Rookie Leagues Lightning Round:

(GCL) Lew Ford: 2-4, with a Double and a K

(GCL) Wilson Betemit: 1-4, with a Double

(GCL) Chance Sisco: 3-4, with a Double and a Triple

(DSL) Daniel Franco: 3-5, with a Double and a SB

*This seems to be from a game which was suspended from Friday, but:

(DSL) Johalis Pacheco: 4 IP, 1 H, 0 BB, 0 R, 10 Ks! Wowza! He's rocking a 1.58 ERA over 45.2 innings with 49 Ks to 18 BBs as a 19 year old.
