Many a strong pitching performance is the theme of the day for the O's affiliates.

Tyler Wilson on the bump

Christopher McCain/Norfolk Tides

Gwinnett (Atlanta) 0 Norfolk 2

Tyler Wilson was brilliant over 7 shutout innings, allowing just 4 hits and no walks. 61 of his 87 pitches went for strikes en route to 7 Ks. Ryan Webb and Evan Meek cleaned up with scoreless innings each. The offense did just enough, with Jimmy Paredes and Henry Urrutia each driving in one run via 2-hit performances. Dariel Alvarez hit a double, scored a run, and prevented a run with an Outfield Assist at home. Christian Walker and Steve Clevenger added a single each.

Trenton (Yankees) 1 Bowie 8

Zach Davies was nearly as good as Tyler Wilson on the night. Davies K'd 9 over 6 innings, including 7 swinging strikeouts. The lone run allowed came via a solo HR in the 1st inning. After that Davies yielded just 5 more hits and 1 intentional walk. Over his last 10 starts, dating back to June 22nd, Davies has lowered his ERA from 4.24 to 3.01. Buck Britton did the bulk of the offensive heavy lifting, going 3 for 4 with a double and 2 runs scored. Glynn Davis went 1 for 4 with 2 RBI. Michael Ohlman drove in one run and scored one with his 1 for 4 night. Mike Yastrzemski went 1 for 5.

Lynchburg (Atlanta) 1 Frederick 6

More effective pitching for the O's organization, this time courtesy of Sebastian Vader who limited the Hillcats to 1 ER over 6 IP. He allowed just 2 hits and issued 3 free passes, while striking out 4. Trey Mancini blasted another Home Run. Adrian Marin went 2 for 4 with a double, and RBI, and a SB. Every Key in the order had at least 1 basehit.

Delmarva 2 Hickory (Rangers) 6

They can't all be zingers, and it was Delmarva where the night's string of strong pitching performances went awry. Bennett Parry only manged 4 innings and allowed 3 R (2 ER) in that time. Josh Hart is on fire, as he has 8 hits in his last 15 at bats. He went 3 for 4 in this game. Drew Dosch went 1 for 4, but also GIDP'd and botched a ball in the infield for his 19th error. Chance Sisco took an 0 for 4 but did draw a walk. Connor Bierfeldt threw out a runner at home for the OF Assist.

Aberdeen 5 Connecticut (Tigers) 7

After a month-long string of solid performances, Stephen Tarpley had a dud of an outing last night. 3.2 IP, 8 H, 3 BBs, 6 R (4 ER), 2 Ks, and a throwing error to boot. Hector Veloz had a good night, going 2 for 4 with a 2 run HR, and his 6th SB of the season.

GCL & DSL notes of note:

Bobby Bundy pitched 1 inning in the GCL. He allowed 2 ER via 1 hit and 1 walk, but also K'd 2.

Daniel Ayers allowed 1 ER via 3 hits over 2 IP.

Jomar Reyes went 2 for 3 with 2 RBI. He has hit to the tune of .375 over his last 10 games (12 for 32).

Jonatan Isenia allowed 2 runs (1 earned) over 4 IP in another GCL game. Over his last 10 games he has K'd 46 in 43 IP, with 6 of the 11 ER he has allowed in that span coming in one awful outing.

Juan Valdez K'd 7 over 8 shutout inning in the DSL.

Ofelky Peralta allowed 3 runs (none earned) via 3 hits and 3 walks over 5 IP in the other DSL game.
