Norfolk Tides 5, Indianapolis Indians 8
Elih Villanueva has made 80 previous AAA starts, but this was his first with Norfolk. Probably one he'd like to forget. He allowed six earned runs in 5 innings, but he did induce ten groundouts. Chaz Roe was put on garbage duty and struck out our in 3.1 innings. Julio Borbon enjoyed his visit with the Indians (8-15, 2B, 2 SBs in the series). Only Christian Walker and Chris Parmalee were held hitless on the day. and Dariel Alvarez had the lone extra base hit for the Tides (3-5, 2B).
Bowie Baysox 4, Richmond Flying Squirrels 9
Spot starter Terry Doyle was chased early after allowing eleven hits, including two homers, in three innings. I don't think anyone expected Chris O'Brien to maintain the torrid pace he was on since the O's acquired him from the Dodgers, but he's been a nice story in that short time. After a few tough oh-fers at the beginning of the month, he's rebounded nicely and maintained an SLG north of .500. O'Brien was 2-5. His former Dodgers comrade Ben Rowen allowed a run over four innings of decent relief.
Frederick Keys 3, Potomac Nationals 2
The Keys came back from a run down to best the P-Nats with a two run seventh. Drew Dosch walked twice, Trey Mancini had three hits and Adrian Marin tripled. David Hess was not very economical with his pitches. Hess was pulled after tossing 84 pitches and four innings, though he struck out three. He also walked five.
Delmarva Shorebirds 11, Greensboro Grasshoppers 3
Every Shorebird got on base at least once in this one and they worked the Grasshoppers for ten walks (multiple players had two. Starter Bennett Parry was credited with the quality start, though he allowed two homers. The lone hit off the bat of Jomar Reyes was a double (.416 SLG).
