Orioles minor league rundown 8/26/13: Eduardo Rodriguez goes eight; Henry Urrutia hits grand slam

A banner night for the Orioles farmhands on Monday night, with only the GCL Birds losing. More importantly, Eduardo Rodriguez and Tsuyoshi Wada pitch very well, and Henry Urrutia goes yard against Freddy Garcia.

Off an old friend, Norfolk mashed Monday, winning 13-1. Tsuyoshi Wada gave up 1 ER in 7 IP on 9 hits and 2 walks, striking out 6 with a GB/FB of 7/2. Jonathan Schoop went 2-4 with a HBP. Henry Urrutia went 2-6 with a grand slam off Freddy Garcia. Speaking of Garcia, he gave up 8 ER in 3.2 IP, allowing 7 hits and 5 walks. Back to the Tides, Alex Liddi went 3-5 with 2 doubles and a K. Xavier Avery went 1-5 with 2 strikeouts.

Behind Eduardo Rodriguez, Bowie won 11-0. Rodriguez went 8 shutout innings, allowing just 2 hits, striking out 5 with a GB/FB of 7/9. MiLB did a story on the game. Dariel Alvarez, debuting for Bowie, went 0-4 with three strikeouts.

Frederick won 6-3. Matt Hobgood gave up 3 ER in 2.1 IP on 5 hits and 3 walks, striking out 2, with a GB/FB of 4/0. Trent Mummey went 0-3 with 2 walks and a CS. Would you send a guy like Mummey to Arizona? Or am I hoping against hope like Scott Bakula? Michael Ohlman DNP.

Aberdeen won 8-3. Hunter Harvey took it on the chin a little, giving up 3 ER in 3.1 IP on 6 hits and 2 walks, with a GB/FB of 2/2. 21 y/o Dominican righty Janser Severino gave up 1 hit in 3.2 scoreless innings, with a 4/1 K/BB and a 6/1 GB/FB. Mike Yastrzemski goes 1-5 with a walk and 2 strikeouts and a SB. Trey Mancini went 0-4 with a walk and a K. Hector Veloz went 0-2 with two strikeouts.

The GCLers lost 7-0. Josh Hart goes 0-2 with a walk and a K. Chance Sisco went 1-4 with 2 strikeouts. Ronarsy Ledesma goes 1-3 with a K.

Neither Dominican squad made the playoffs, so their seasons are finished.
