Orioles minor league rundown, 7/31/2014

Christopher McCain

Norfolk Tides 7, Toledo Mud Hens 8

Just like their big brothers in Charm City, the Tides lost in frustrating fashion in extra innings...of course, this game featured 30 hits and 15 runs as opposed to the dour 1-nil affair at OPACY. At any rate, the big news was a breakout game from Henry Urrutia (hopefully). Urrutia notched his second three hit game of the year and knocked only his second double since completing his rehabilitation assignment. Urrutia added a steal for good measure. Though as the fortunes of one Cuban defector rise, they fall for another. Dariel Alvarez. Christian Walker shook off hisbrief funk with a single, a double and a walk while Francisco Peguero also doubled.

Tyler Wilson had his worst start since moving to AAA. Wilson allowed nine baserunners in four innings and allowed four to score. He struck 32 batters in 36 innings since promotion. Utility infielder Cord Phelps was called on to pitch in the bottom of the eleventh and lost the game.

Bowie Baysox 4, Binghamton Mets 9

Mike Yastrzemski continues to mash. Lil Yaz hit his third triple and first homer since moving up a level, but the Baysox were unable to keep up with the Mets. His partner in crime Glynn Davis ran his hitless streak to three games, though Garabez Rosa hit his 22nd double of the year.

Not much worth noting on the pitching front, but Ashur Tolliver was perfect in two innings of relief.

Frederick Keys 9, Winston-Salem Dash 7

The Keys scored three runs in the ninth to complete a comeback and prevent a sweep at the hand of the Dash. Jerome Pena and Trey Mancini each had multihit games and drove in five of the Keys' runs. Pena had two doubles and a triple while Mancini doubled.

Parker Bridwell has walked 19 batters in his last 25 innings, including three in four innings on this particular occasion.

Delmarva Shorebirds 3, Lakewood Blueclaws 6

The good news is that Mitch Horacek struck out eight batters in 3.2 innings. The bad news is that he also allowed ten hits and six earned runs. Haitian born hurler Williams Louico and Dariel Delgado threw five shutout innings the rest of the way.

Anthony Caronia continues to make light work of the Sally League. Caronia's batting average is now .422 in 20 second half games (.369 on the year, good for second in the league).

Aberdeen Ironbirds v. State College Spikes

The Ironbirds split a doubleheader with the Spikes.

Game 1: 2014 draftee Tanner Chleborad held the Spikes scoreless over five innings. Riley Palmer douibled and homered while Hector Veloz and Tanner Murphy each reached base in all three of their plate appearances. 3-2 Ironbirds

Game 2: Austin Anderson and Alex Murphy doubled, but the Ironbirds only reached base seven times...and Jamill Moquete was caught stealing one of those times. 8-2 Spikes
