Orioles Minor League Rundown: 5-25-15

New, comments

Norfolk wins, but otherwise it's a rather shoddy day on the Farm. Oh, and Dylan Bundy might be out of action for awhile again.

Syracuse (Nationals) 2 Norfolk 7

Tyler Wilson got the start, but was pulled after just 1.2 innings as a hedge in case he would be needed during Thursday's Orioles double header. He allowed just 2 hits in his truncated start and K'd 3. Zach Davies came on to work after that and spun 4.1 innings of work, allowing a lone run via 4 hits and 2 walks while striking out 7. Changeup musta been working something fierce.

The offense was paced by Steve Clevenger, who went fo-fo-fo, and is now hitting a healthy and robust .352 / .413 / .451. Maybe Matt Wieters ought to be looking into apartments in the Norfolk area? Cult hero Nolan Riemold went 1 for 3 with a double, a walk, and 2 runs scored. He has raised his average 27 points in the last 10 games, and is currently slashing to the tune of .279 / .344 / .388. The SLG is not yet ideal, but at this point I think I'd rather see him playing 2-3 times per week than some of the other corner outfield options the O's are trotting out there. Ryan Flaherty went 0 for 3 with a walk and 2 RsBI in his return to action.

Bowie 1 Richmond (Giants) 6

The Baysox had as many hits all game (5) as Richmond scored runs in the first 3 innings. le sigh...Glynn Davis hit a dinger, so that's cool I guess. Mike Yaz was 1 for 3 with a walk. Alrighty. Quincy Lattimore had an outfield assist. Neat. Otherwise...blah.

Oh, and Dylan Bundy has already been scratched from his scheduled Tuesday start due to what may be shoulder tendinitis. Awesome...

Frederick 5 Lynchburg (Cleveland) 6

The Keys jumped out to a quick 4-0 lead, but two 3-run innings for Lynchburg overcame the early deficit. Jeff Kemp is looking to play for hometown Bowie, as his '15 slash line currently sits at .289 / .349 / .447 after a 3 for 5 effort in this game. Austin Wynns went 2 for 3 with a walk and 2 doubles. A plethora of opportunities to blow this one open for the Keys, but a 3 for 14 with RISP is sub-optimal.

Luis Gonzalez left the game after 5 IP with a 4-3 lead, but the 'pen coughed up a 3 spot in the 7th which the Keys could not recover from.

Delmarva 3 Hickory (Rangers) 10

Ronarsy Ledesma had a rough 5th inning as he missed two catches on consecutive plays at 2B. The Crawdads would go on to put a 3 spot on the board that inning. (SP) Matthew Grimes was the innocent victim of that carnage, though he did himself no favors by allowing 9 hits over his 5 innings of work. 5 of the 10 Hickory runs go on his ledger, though just 1 of those was earned. Mike Burke gave up 2 dingers and 4 ER in an inning and two-thirds.

Conor Bierfeldt accounted for the Shorebirds run production, smacking an F-U Earl Weaver Special in the 8th. Jomar Reyes went 1 for 4 with a double.

Tuesday's now Dylan Bundy-less Probables are:

Norfolk: (LHP) T.J. McFarland (look for him to be pulled early a la Tyler Wilson as a hedge for the O's Thursday double header)

Bowie: TBA

Delmarva: (RHP) Sebastian Vader
