Orioles minor league rundown, 6/15/2014

The Baby Birds go 2-2 as the Carolina and South Atlantic Leagues reach the halfway point of their respective seasons...


Norfolk Tides 0, Syracuse Chiefs 4

The Chiefs teed off on spot starter Nick Additon for four runs on eight hits. Additon has now allowed at least as many runs as innings pitched in his last three appearances. Brock Huntzinger and Kelvin De La Cruz were effective in relief shutting out the Chiefs the rest of the way. Huntzinger was nearly perfect, walking one and striking out five in three innings of work.

Francisco Peguero, Cord Phelps and Buck Britton doubled. The Tides could only manage a 1-9 night with RISP.

Bowie Baysox 6, Harrisburg Senators 2

In the few games Nolan Reimold has played since beginning his rehabilitation assignment, he has demonstrated that his eye has not suffered in his time away from in game action. Reimold walked four times in today's game against the Senators, but is SLGing a mere .263 overall. The big bats of the Baysox weren't exactly on fire today as only Garabez Rosa managed an extra base hit, but that's okay, because on this day, his teammates were peppering the field with singles. Kyeong Kang and Dariel Alvarez each had a pair.

Tim Berry seemed to have his stuff working. Young Mr. Berry struck out seven in six innings, but also walked four. He only allowed one earned run and didn't  allow any homers. Jason Gurka allowed a run in relief, But Oliver Drake finished off the game and was credited with his 13th save.

Frederick Keys 6, Myrtle Beach Pelicans 1

Parker Bridwell, while at times frustrating, has also maybe been one of the best stories in the organization this season. It's always a small victory when Bridwell isn't his own undoing and he did well on that account as he walked one and allowed one three hits...though, one was a solo homer. Bridwell also struck out four and induced eight groundouts in six innings of work.

The Keys senior auxiliary did the heavy lifting today as Michael Burgess, Sammie Starr, Jason Esposito and Brenden Webb homered. Burgess also doubled, singled and stole a base.

Delmarva Shorebirds 6, West Virginia Power 5

The Shorebirds offense was efficient and productive enough to complete a sweep of the West Virginia Power. Chance Sisco and Greg Lorenzo had two hit games; Trey Mancini and Connor Bierfeldt homered while Drew Dosch walked three times. Dosch also singled and stole a base. Despite going 1-10 in the last couple games, Mike Yastrzemski is STILL SLGing .702 in his last ten. That's what a pair of two homer games will do for you, I guess. Little Yaz also was credited with his 13th outfield assist on the season. Why do people keep challenging him?

Luc Rennie demonstrated he is a bona fide O's pitcher by cruising through five innings of work and collapsing in the sixth. In that inning, the Power opened things up with three straight singles before hitting into a force. Rennie promptly served up a homer to the next batter JaCoby Jones. Big Jon Keller came on in relief and uncharacteristically struggled through the final 2/3 of the inning, but made quick work of the Power in his next couple innings to secure the win. Jimmy the Yak was credited with his 14th save of the season.

Aberdeen Ironbirds 2, Hudson Valley Renegades 4

Dylan Bundy's return did not disappoint.  In his first, official regular season start since 2012, Bundy allowed one earned run and struck out six in five innings. He did allow some hard contact in the form of a couple doubles and a triple, but...

Oh, yeah...Bundy was also 8/0 groundout to air out.

2013 draftee Alex Murphy singled and walked.
