Orioles minors 4/10: A rehabbing Kevin Gausman gets in his work, sorta

Down at Bowie, Kevin Gausman did a little rehabbing, but he only pitched for two innings. I hope that was the plan. Elsewhere in the minors, there were prospects who had much better days.

Norfolk Tides 9, Gwinnett (Braves) 4

The Tides are in the win column for the first time in four games. They broke out in a big way on Sunday, picking up 11 hits and 11 walks. Can you imagine the Orioles walking 11 times in a game? I can't even imagine it. That was nearly as many walks as the Orioles had in their first four games.

Audry Perez did the heavy lifting for Norfolk, going 4-5 with two doubles and two RBI. That'll work. Henry Urrutia was the only other Norfolk player with a multi-hit game. He also drew a walk.

Akron (Indians) 5, Bowie Baysox 4

Rehabbing Kevin Gausman pitched for two innings, and three batters into the third inning. He gave up four hits and one walk in that time, so that's, uh... look, obviously even Double-A hitters might sometimes have a good day against an MLBer sometimes, but honestly. Can't we have one outing to make us feel good about these guys?

The Baysox are 0-3 after three games. They scored their four runs on only six hits, which is kind of impressive, especially considering they only had one extra base hit. 40-man pitcher Parker Bridwell gave up four of the five runs in 4.1 innings following Gausman - giving up two homers to #9 hitter Todd Hankins. Don't give up two home runs to the #9 hitter in Double-A!

Myrtle Beach (Cubs) 7, Frederick Keys 5

There's like one pitcher to watch on Frederick right now and it's Tanner Scott, so of course he gave up three runs in two innings late in the game to put it more or less out of reach for the Keys. The one hitter to watch is the big boy, Jomar Reyes, who had a double in three at-bats and also drew a couple of walks. I like people who get extra-base hits and draw walks.

Frederick actually out-hit the Pelicans, 10-8, but they only batted 3-14 with RISP. The Spawn of Shawon Dunston, who is also named Shawon Dunston, did a lot of damage to the Keys, driving in three runs on two hits.

Delmarva Shorebirds 7, Hagerstown (Walgreens) 4 (7 innings - Game 1)

The Shorebirds and Suns played two games after a Saturday postponement, and remember, in the minor leagues when you play a doubleheader it's only seven innings per game. The dude of the game was surely Baltimore's own Alex Murphy, who cleared the loaded bases with a double, but let's also give some credit to last year's first rounder, D.J. Stewart, went 1-2 with a double and also drew two walks.

Murphy gets credit too for throwing out Walgreens speedster Victor Robles, who was also picked off later in the game. For the Suns, The Spawn of Cal Ripken Jr., who is not also named Cal Ripken, had two hits in three at-bats. The excellently-named Christian Turnipseed got the save for Delmarva.

Delmarva Shorebirds 3, Hagerstown (Walgreens) 0 (7 innings - Game 2)

One kind of gets the impression that, in the second game of the minor league doubleheader, they just want to get it over with. Each team had five hits, but the Shorebirds also drew six walks to one for the Suns. Murphy was the dude once again, with a 2-3 game in which he drew a walk and also batted in a run.
