Orioles minors 4/11: Matusz shelled in rehab outing; Mancini homers again

Brian Matusz got blasted in a rehab outing in Bowie - but Trey Mancini hit his third homer. Does that even things out in the Orioles minors? You tell me.

Norfolk Tides 7, Charlotte Knights 6

The Tides faced off against old friend Miguel Gonzalez and gave him a rather rude greeting. Both Christian Walker and Audry Perez homered, but Dariel Alvarez pushed across L.J. Hoes with a go ahead double in the bottom of the 8th. Ariel Miranda struck out six, but allowed eight baserunners in 4.2 innings. Cesar Cabral was charged with five earned runs in .1 inning.

Bowie Baysox 11, Erie SeaWolves 9

Brian Matusz was shelled in his rehab outing. I mean...this was 2011 caliber stuff. Matusz was gave up six earned runs and seven hits in a single inning. Fortunately for the Baysox, Brennan Smith was in a giving mood. The SeaWolves starter gave up three homers, including one to Trey Mancini. Chris Lee was solid in relief of Matusz. Lee allowed three earned runs in 6.1 innings and induced eleven groundouts.

Frederick Keys 1, Salem Red Sox 5

The Salem Red Sox are one of those heralded, prospect-laden juggernauts that seems to come along every year. The Frederick Keys are not quite in that class. This game wasn't particularly lopsided, but the offense didn't really show any signs of waking up. Jay Gonzalez had a couple more hits to bump his OBP up to .471...Jay Gonzalez is also going to be 25 this year. Make of that what you will.

Delmarva Shorebirds 1, Kannapolis Intimidators 2

Ofelky Peralta was not particularly sharp in his full season debut, but at the tender age of 18, the young Dominican has plenty of time to figure stuff out. D.J. Stewart, Ryan Moutcastle and Alex Murphy were a combined 1-10. Not going to win too many games like that.

Today's Probables:

Norfolk: Odrisamer Despaigne

Bowie: Jason Garcia

Frederick: Mitch Horacek

Delmarva: Lucas Long
