Norfolk 4, Toledo 3: Freddy Garcia is allowed to opt out of his minor league deal with the Orioles if he is not added to the 25 man roster after five starts. He gave the Duq something to chew on today as he made his fifth start. Garcia allowed two earned runs in eight innings while striking out five and scattering six hits. No one truly distinguished themselves offensively, though Russ Canzler hit his fourth homer of the season while Jonathan Schoop hit his fifth double. Little Jerome was charged with an error.
Bowie 0, Harrisburg 1: Once again, the Goose was masterful. Kevin Gausman fanned eight in 7.2 innings. He only allowed one earned run and zero free passes. Again, not a terribly exciting day offensively for an O's affiliate. The X-Man and Ty Kelly each walked once, while Henry Urrutia doubled and walked.

Frederick 10, Carolina 5: Tim Berry continued his campaign to confuse and dispirit Carolina League opponents. Berry's walked four and struck out 35 across 28 innings and five starts this season. Today, he struck out eight and walked none in six innings. Brenden Webb walked twice and stole a base. Swingin Sammie Starr (home run, five RBI) and Glynn Davis each had a pair of hits.
