It was a clean sweep for the affiliates in action yesterday night.

Bowie 6, Altoona (Pirates) 3

Everyone in the lineup reached base and Trey Mancini hit his 6th home run since joining Bowie (14th overall in '15). Mancini is only about 1/2 way to reaching the plate appearance threshold to qualify for Eastern League leaderboards, but his .341 average would rank 1st, his .366 OBP would tie him for 10th, and his .577 SLG would also rank 1st. I don't know if this success will continue (actually, I do...it won't) but it is nice to see an O's prospect succeed, albeit if only temporarily.

Starter Terry Doyle went 6.2 innings, allowing no earned runs and just 1 unearned run. His 2.00 ERA ranks 5th in the Eastern League, but he also has more innings pitched than any of the names ahead of him; and a good number (13+) more than 3 of those guys. Tim Berry worked an inning of relief and gave up a solo donger, but was otherwise competent as he K'd 2.

Salem (Red Sox) 1, Frederick 3

Indy League find Tanner Witt continues to crush a lot, like Big Pun. He went 2-3 with a dinger and a walk in this one. Jeff Kemp hit a two-run home run in the 6th to give the Keys a lead they would not relinquish. Actual prospects Josh Hart and Chance Sisco each took 0-4s on the night. 26-year-old Cubano southpaw Ariel Miranda had his best start to date, striking out 7 and walking none over 5 innings of 1 run allowed pitching.

Aberdeen 2, Brooklyn (Mets) 0

6 Ironbirds' pitchers combined for the shutout, with 4 of them denying the Cyclones any hits in their portions of the game. Cedric Mullins continues to hit well. 2-4 with a double and a SB in this one. His .345 average ranks 6th in the NYPL, a .409 OBP slots in at a tie for 14th, and his .452 SLG stands in a tie for 13th overall. His 7th SBs ties him with 2 others for 4th in the league. D.J. Stewart went 0-4 w/ 2 Ks.
