Norfolk Tides 1, Buffalo Bison 0
Heck of an outing from Eddie "the Gambler" Gamboa. The knuckleballer fired six shutout innings striking out six and walking two. Gamboa, along with colleagues Cesar Cabral, Pedro Beato, held the Bison to five hits. Both Nolan Reimold and Chris Parmalee were 2-4. Reimold also stole his fourth base of the season.
Bowie Baysox 2, Richmond Flying Squirrels 0
Dylan Bundy got the start for the Baysox today and logged his, to this point, typical three innings. Mychal Givens earned his fifth save of the season, walking two and striking out three over two innings.

Serving as DH, Chris O'Brien continued to punish Eastern League pitching. He doubled, drove in a run and walked twice (.307/.366/.600 slash). Jason Esposito homered and Mike Yazstrzemski was credited with an outfield assist. Esposito was a nice story last year, finally showing some of the promise the O's saw when they selected him in the 2nd round in 2011, but he'd gotten off to a slow start offensively to start the year. In 11 home games this season, he's logged an obscene .450 wOBA.
Frederick Keys 3, Potmac Nationals 4
Newish signee Jhonathan Ramos worked five innings and allowed a solo home run. The Venezuelan lefty struck out three and induced eight groundouts. The Keys came back from a run down with three seventh, but their own bullpen allowed the P-Nats to get back in it and walk it off. Jon Keller lost it. Trey Mancini homered and Drew Dosch went 2-4
Delamarva Shorebirds 0, Augusta GreenJackets 6
The Shorebirds were held to six baserunners with only leadoff man Jay Gonzalez reaching base more than once (.364 OBP this season). Gonzalez gets the gold star for the day for also fielding his position. Gonzalez was credited with his second outfield assist. Sebastian Vader went a workmanlike 6.2 innings, allowing four runs and striking out two. Zeke McGranahan followed and he struck out four, though he allowed two more runs (due in part to the miscues of Jared Breen).
