Baby Birds Go Boink

Xman gonna give it to ya
Xman gonna give it to ya


Parker Bridwell took the bump for the Shorebirds tonight. After struggling a bit through the 1st inning he began to take out his frustration on the worms which populate the Delmarva infield by inducing 8 ground outs over 5.2 IP while allowing 6 H, 1 BB, 3 R (1 ER), and K'ing 4. Former SS-turned-RP prospect Mychal Givens came on in relief and provide 1.1 IP of scoreless pitching with 0 H, 1 BB, and 1 K.

On the offensive ledger, Christian Walker with another multi-hit night; 2-4, w/ 1 BB and 1 K. Could see him earning a promotion to Frederick some time in May. Roderick Bernadina has also been swinging the stick rather effectively to start the season. He also went 2-4, w/ a triple and a K. Adrian Marin joined in the action as well with his own 2 hit effort. However, he did commit a throwing error on what looks to have been a relay throw to home.


Another promising pitching prospect took the bump for the Keys tonight, in the form of Eduardo Rodriguez. Like Mr. Bridwell, he struggled in the 1st inning, giving up a 2 run HR to the White Sox' best prospect, Courtney Hawkins, but then decided to burn up some worms in the infield. 10 ground outs to 2 fly outs complimented 4 strikeouts and zero walks over 6 IP. Unfortunately, the aforementioned Mr. Hawkins was ERod's daddy tonight, as he hit a second 2 run HR in his second at bat. ERod ended up yielding 9 hits, 5 runs (4 ER) over his 6 innings.

The offense was pretty much non-existent. My boy Brenden Webb went 0-3 with 1 K, but did draw 1 BB. Glynn Davis was 0-4 from the lead off spot.


The offense was clickin for Bowie tonight, as they put up crooked numbers in both the 1st and 2nd innings. Xavier Avery went 3-4, w/ 1 BB and 2 runs scored. He led off the game with a line drive Double. Walked in the 2nd and went 1st to 3rd on a single to CF. Singled in the 4th via a line drive into LF. Bunted for a single in the 7th and advanced to 2B when the 1Bman failed to catch the ball. Speed kills. Ty Kelly with a ho-hum 1-4, w/ 1 BB, 1 RBI, and 2 runs scored.

On the mound, strikeout artiste Clay Schrader pitched a clean 8th inning, striking out 2 swinging. d

Late note: Per Steve Melewski, (SP) Devin Jones has been promoted from Frederick to Bowie to take the rotation slot of the now DL'd Julio Rodriguez.


Not much exciting here. Zach Clark started and wasn't any particular great shakes over his 4.1 IP, tossing 92 pitches (54 strikes) while allowing 3 H, 3 BBs, 2 R (1 ER) and striking out 3.

Jonathan Schoop's offensive struggles continue, as he went 0-4, w/ 1 K.
