Orioles minor league rundown - 5/24

Michael Ohlman - Bert Hindman

The Keys were the lone losing team last night as the Orioles affiliates went 3-1.

Norfolk Tides 12, Gwinnett Braves 5

Eddie Gamboa pitched five scoreless innings for the Tides, but the knuckleballer struggled with his control, walking four. He did have a 5/1 ground out to fly out ratio in addition to three strikeouts, but it took him 106 pitches to get through five. Heath Bell continued to impress his new club (insert sarcasm font) as he gave up four runs in just 2/3 of an inning. Bell walked two and allowed two doubles and two singles. Evan Meek pitched the final 1 1/3 innings with just 1 hit allowed.

The Tides offense had 14 hits and four walks, and broke a 5-5 tie in the top of the ninth with a seven-run inning. LF Quintin Berry had a great game with three hits, including a home run, and a walk. 2B Jemile Weeks also had three hits on the night. Steve Lombardozzi, who is probably hoping to join his Team Steve brethren in Baltimore soon, had a single and a walk. Catcher Brian Ward went 0-for-4.

Bowie Baysox 5, Harrisburg Senators 4

A home run by C Michael Ohlman in the eighth inning gave the Baysox the go-ahead run they needed to win last night's game. It was Ohlman's only hit on the night, though he also walked. Fellow Baysox hotshot, CF Dariel Alvarez, also homered as part of a two-hit game. 1B Christian Walker went 2-for-5.

Anthony Vasquez started for the Baysox and pitched 5 1/3 innings with four hits and two runs allowed. He struck out seven, which is good, but walked three, which is bad. After Juan Morello blew the lead with two runs in 1 1/3 innings, Chris Petrini pitched 1 1/3 scoreless innings with just two walks. Oliver "the Admiral" Drake locked down the win with his 10th save.

Frederick Keys 3, Wilmington Blue Rocks 2 (10)

The Keys took a 2-1 lead into the ninth inning courtesy of a great start by Branden Kline, but a blown save by Ashur Tolliver (two doubles and a walk) sent the game into extra innings. The Blue Rocks walked off in the tenth after Matt Price walked the leadoff batter, who came in to score on  single.

Back to Branden Kline. Kline pitched seven innings with seven hits allowed (five singles, two doubles), and didn't walk a batter. He struck out six and gave up just one run. It was a nice bounce back for Kline, who was coming off of two straight tough starts in which he gave up 10 runs in 9 total innings.

On offense, RF Brenden Webb had a nice night, with a single, a home run, and a walk. DH Tucker Nathans also had two hits. CF Glynn Davis went 1-for-5.

Delmarva Shorebirds 4, Kannapolis Intimidators 1

Luc Rennie started for the Shorebirds and shut down the Intimidators. In 6 2/3 innings, Rennie struck out seven and didn't give up a walk. He gave up just one run on seven hits.

DH Conor Bierfeldt homered for the Birds, while 1B Trey Mancini, LF Gregory Lorenzo, and RF Mike Yastrzemski all had two hits each. C Chance Sisco was 0-for-2 with two walks. CF Josh Hart was 0-for-4. 3B Drew Dosch was 0-for-4.
