Orioles Minor League Rundown: 8-3-15

How low can Oliver Drake's ERA go before the O's have no choice but to call him up?

Louisville (Reds) 2 Norfolk 3

The Tides scored 1 in the 7th and 2 in the 8th to steal a late win. Terry Doyle earned his MiLB leading 12th Win with an 8 inning, 2 ER performance. Oliver Drake struck out the side to secure his 17th Save. His ERA is a ludicrous 0.55 now, with an even more amusing 54 Ks to 14 BBs over 33 IP. Tough to crack the O's pen at the moment, it seems.

Michael Almanzar drove in the first Tides' run in the 7th via sac fly. Dariel Alvarez reached via error in the 8th which resulted in the other two runs scoring. Junior Lake went 1-2 w/ 2 walks and a SB in his debut. Christian Walker took an 0-4 w/ 2 Ks.

Hickory (Rangers) 8 Delmarva 1

Brian Gonzalez K'd 6 over 6 IP while allowing 4 runs (just 1 ER, though). Jomar Reyes went 2-4 with a double and a K. Yermin Mercedes went 1-4 with a double.

Connecticut (Tigers) 7 Aberdeen 4

Glynn Davis went 2-5 w/ an RBI. Steve Laurino went 2-4 w/ a double. D.J. Stewart hit a triple and scored a run in his 4 at bats. Lazaro Levya K'd 4 over 2 IP while allowing 1 ER and 2 hits. Garrett Cleavinger chalked up 2 more scoreless innings. That's 10 on the season for the 3rd rounder now in spite of having 7 BBs in that span as well.

Your Tuesday probables are:

Norfolk: (RHP) Kenn Kasparek

Bowie: just signed MiLB FA (LHP) Sean Bierman. His player picture instantly goes in the pantheon alongside Caleb Joseph's.

Frederick: (RHP) Mikey O'Brien

Delmarva: (RHP) Matthew Grimes

Aberdeen: TBA
