Orioles minors 7/20: Three games, one win from Norfolk

Both Aberdeen and Frederick were off on Wednesday, but Norfolk provided some excitement on an otherwise quiet day and night down on the farm.

Norfolk Tides 5, Buffalo Bisons 4

Andy Oliver had to save the day for Tyler Wilson, but the Tides managed to pick up a Wednesday matinee win. Wilson lasted just 3.2 innings, allowing six hits and two earned before yielding to Oliver. The 29-year-old veteran tossed three frames of scoreless ball, surrendering just one hit and officially picking up the win.

Corbin Joseph notched a 2-4 with a home run and two RBI. Dariel Alvarez boosted his Norfolk season average to .280 with a double, while Mike Yastrzemski singled and walked twice.

The Tides win now takes them to 37-61… which, well is better than 36-62.

Binghamton Mets 8, Bowie Baysox 4

Starter Jason Garcia was cruising to a potential win before the fifth inning rolled around. The Mets put up a seven spot, absolutely crushing Garcia’s chance at a win. He’d leave after getting just one out in the frame, giving the bullpen some extra work. Parker Bridwell, Bobby Bundy and Michael Zouzalik each worked scoreless innings.

It was a quiet overall performance for the Baysox bats despite putting up four runs. Sharlon Schoop tripled in his 1-5, Joey Terdoslavich picked up a 2-5 with a double and leadoff man Drew Dosch knocked two singles and a pair of walks.

Chance Sisco reached base twice with a single and a free base - he’s now hitting .321 and heating up in potential trade talks.

Hickory Crawdads 2, Delmarva Shorebirds 0

The offense decided not to show up to the ballpark in Delmarva on Wednesday, with everyone but Randolph Gassaway and leadoff man Cedric Mullins going hitless. Gassaway went 2-3 with a double and Mullins singled, but that was all on the night for the Shorebirds.

Starter Reid Love fanned six over five and two thirds, while 23-year-old righty Mike Burke threw a perfect 2.1 innings with four strikeouts.
