Orioles minor league rundown 9/1/13: Hunter Harvey shows promise for Aberdeen; Tides charge towards playoffs

This is not Hunter Harvey, but, yeah...Steve Johnson was pretty good yesterday - Joy R. Absalon-US PRESSWIRE

Fine performances from Hunter Harvey and Steve Johnson keyed a pair of wins for the Orioles minor league affiliates on Sunday.

Bowie and Delmarva's games were postponed.

Norfolk 3, Durham 2: Steve Johnson, Chris Jones and Jairo Asencio combined to hold the Bulls to three hits. Johnson was particularly crisp, striking out ten and walking two in 6.1 innings. Jonathan Schoop was 2-4 with a double while Henry Urrutia singled and walked.

Frederick 3, Potomac 4 (suspended, to be completed today): Trent Howard left the game after four innings in which he allowed seven baserunners, but also struck out five. Trent Mummey has walked twice and stolen his second base of the season. In nine games with the Keys he's walked seven times and has an OBP of .333, despite only batting .172. I presume Michael Ohlman will get an extra base hit before the game wraps up.

Aberdeen 5, Brooklyn 4: The Ironbirds increased their division lead over the Cyclones to one and a half games on the strength of a sharp outing by Hunter Harvey and ninth inning rally. Harvey struck out five and induced five groundouts in 4.1 innings. Harvey has now struck out fifteen batters in twelve NYPL innings. After playing to a 1-1 duel through eight innings, the Ironbirds loaded the bases for Mike Yastrzemski. Little Yaz hit his second double of the game to clear the bases. He would come around to score on a wild pitch and a throwing error. "You're out of your element" Donnie Hart nearly coughed up the lead in the bottom of the ninth, but held on. Janser Severino struck out four in 1.2 innings and Conor Bierfeldt homered.
