Syracuse (Nationals) 5 Norfolk 3
The struggles of Mike Wright continue. Over 5 innings of work in this game he allowed 4 ERs via 5 hits (1 HR) and 3 walks. He K'd 3, induced 1 GIDP, and threw 64 of his 94 pitches for strikes. Relatively speaking however, this actually marks his most successful outing since May 6th. So that's something, I suppose.
Julio Borbon and Brett Wallace each knocked two hits on the night. Steve Clevenger went 1 for 4 with an RBI, and threw out 1 of 2 base stealers. Jemile Weeks went 1 for 4 with a double.
Bowie 5 Trenton (Yankees) 2
Tyler Wilson continues to log innings. 7 more in this game. He allowed 6 hits and a walk, resulting in 2 ERs, while striking out 3 and inducing 11 ground outs to just 3 fly outs. Dariel Alvarez and Michael Ohlman did the bulk of the damage on offense. Alvarez blasted a 3 run HR in the 8th to break a tie game open. Ohlman went 3 for 4 with an RBI double. All of those runs were driven in with 2 outs. Christian Walker was held to an 0 for 3 line, but did draw 1 walk.
Aberdeen 3 Staten Island (Yankees) 4
Poor Aberdeen. Off to an 0-5 start, they led 3-1 after 7 innings in this game before coughing up the lead in the 9th. 23 year old RHP Nick Cunningham pitched 5 solid innings; striking out 3 and walking none while allowing just 2 hits and 1 unearned run. The defense was rather horrid for the Ironbirds, committing 3 throwing errors and 1 fielding error. The baserunning was the opposite, as they managed to swipe 4 bases in 5 attempts. Alex Murphy went 3 for 5 with 2 RBI. Hector Veloz went 2 for 5 with a SB, 2 Ks, and 1 of the aforementioned throwing errors.

Another game, another walk drawn for 17 year old Carlos Diaz. Unfortunately, the same can be said of errors for the young 1Bman as he had another one of those as well, his 5th. 20 year old Infielder Sergio Lamas hit a triple and drove in the only run for the O's. 19 year old RHP Victor Romero went 6 IP and allowed no runs or walks while striking out 5.
