Josh Hader owns the Rangers Low-A affiliate. Nicky Delmonico continues to show some decent power. Tyler Wilson continues to find Double-A amenable to his skill level. L.J. Hoes is on fire.

Is this the heir to Nate McLouth in LF for the O's?

Elaina Ellis/Norfolk Tides


Louisville (Reds) 5, Norfolk 3 (Game 1)

Josh Stinson started game one of the double dip for the Tides. He was less than effective, going 5.1 IP while allowing 9 H, 5 R (4 ER) and 2 BBs while K'ing 4. Andy Loomis finished the 7 inning abbreviated game by putting up 1.2 perfect innings with 4 Ks. Reds speedster Billy Hamilton was held to 1-4, w/ 2 Ks. Though he did swipe his 41st stolen base on the season. L.J. Hoes did the damage for the Tides, going 1-2, w/ his 3rd HR and 2 BBs. He's been on fire over the past 2 weeks, putting up a .350/.490/.600 slash line since June 1st.

Louisville (Reds) 1 , Norfolk 0 (Game 2)

Jair Jurrjens returned from his thumb injury and pitched quite well. 7 IP (complete game), 1 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 3 Ks. Billy Hamilton was kept off the bases, as he accounted for all 3 of Jair's Ks on the night. L.J. Hoes went 1-2, w/ 1 BB.

Bowie 6, Binghamton (Mets) 3

Tyler Wilson made his 2nd AA start. And after a 5IP, 3H, 2ER, 2BB, 6K performance last time he went 5.1IP, 2H, 3ER, 3BB, 3Ks tonight. He's a flyball pitcher and he's allowed 1 HR in each outing, with the damage in this game being a 3 run shot by Allen Dykstra. Something to monitor. But all in all, a pretty decent beginning for him in AA. He relies on Plus command & control to pound the zone and gets his stuff to play up by placing his pitches just where he wants them. He certainly impressed me when I got to see him make his last start for Frederick. The recently activated Oliver Drake pitched 1 inning, allowing but 1 BB while striking out 2. Caleb Joseph went 2-3, w/ 1 BB, a 2B, and a SF. I feel he really ought to be moved on up to AAA. Henry Urrutia and Ty Kelly each had the night off.

Potomac (Nats) 4, Frederick 0 (Game 1)

The Keys also played twin 7 inning games tonight. Tim Berry started Game 1. He would pitch 6 innings, allowing 9 H (none for extra bases), 4 ER, and 1 BB while K'ing 5. The offense didn't get the memo that there was an early game, as they managed to put up just 2 H and 1 BB, which were (unsurprisingly) good for 0 runs. Nick Delmonico had one of those hits, going 1-3. Christian Walker (0-3), Michael Ohlman (0-3, w/ 1 K), and Brenden Webb (0-2, w/ 1 K) all slept through their alarm clocks.

Potomac (Nats) 4, Frederick 9 (Game 2)

Wow. What a difference about a half hour makes. The offense awakened as Nick Delmonico (2-4) and Michael Ohlman (1-2, w/ 1 BB) each hit solo HRs. Brenden Webb and Christian Walker continued sleep walking, as each went 0-3. Normally working out of the 'pen, Trent Howard made his 3rd start, going 4.2 IP, 4 H (1 HR), 4 R (2 ER), 1 BB, 3 Ks.

Delmarva 7, Hickory (Rangers) 4

Josh Hader, man...What a find by Rajsich and Co. 6.1 IP tonight, where he yielded but 1 H, 2 R (1 ER), 3 BBs, 1 WP, and 2 HBP while striking out 6. Hickory is a club that swings for the fences, with a lineup full of boppers. But Hader managed to keep them burnin' up worms in the infield by inducing 9 groundouts vs. just 2 flyouts. (CF) Gregory Lorenzo went 0-4, w/ 2 Ks but managed to drive in 1 run, score 1 run, and steal his 21st bag of the year. (SS) Adrian Marin managed a 1-4 and drove in 2 runs.

DSL D-backs 2, DSL O's1 1 (12 Innings)

(CF) Alexander Mercedes went 1-5, w/ 1 SB and an OF Assist where he gunned down a runner at Home. (1B) Victor Medina went 1-4, w/ 2 Ks. 18 y/o Brazilian RHP Rafael Moreno has had a very nice start to his DSL season. 3 IP today, allowing just 2 H, 1 ER, and 2 BBs while striking out 4.
