This is an old picture of Caleb Joseph as a Tide. I guess he still looks this way now that he’s down there.

Rochester Red Wings (MIN) 6, Norfolk Tides 0

Joe “The Gunk” Gunkel was originally scheduled to pitch this game but was scratched presumably in case he needs to come up to take Chris Tillman’s roster spot. Instead the Tides got a bullpen game which, as you can see, did not go so well. The Red Wings scored five runs in the first three innings off of Richard Rodriguez and Jayson Aquino.

On offense the Tides were held to just three hits, one each by Caleb Joseph, Trey Mancini, and Christian Walker. Come back to us soon, Caleb!

Trenton Thunder (NYY) 3, Bowie Baysox 1

Matthew Grimes pitched six innings with only two runs allowed, but when your team only scores one that just isn’t enough.

Henry Urrutia had the only multi-hit game and the lone RBI for the Baysox. Chance Sisco was 1-for-3 with a walk. Newly signed Chris Dickerson went hitless.

Winston-Salem Dash (CWS) 9, Frederick Keys 5

Mitch Horacek had a poor game, giving up six runs without getting out of the fifth inning. Ouch. He only struck out one and gave up two home runs

The top of the Keys lineup was productive as Erick Salcedo, D.J. Stewart, and Wynston Sawyer each had two hits and a walk. Cameron Kneeleand homered for his only hit.

Hagerstown Suns (WAS) 4, Delmarva Shorebirds 2

The Birds held a 2-1 lead in the eighth when the Suns scored three runs off of Steven Klimek to come back and win. That ruined a nice game by Francisco Jimenez, who had gone six innings with just one run allowed on six hits, one walk, and five strikeouts.

Not many wins will come your way when you score just two runs on four hits. Ryan Mountcastle had two of those hits, including a triple. Alex Murphy and Natanael Delgado picked up the other two.

Staten Island Yankees 1, Aberdeen Ironbirds 0

A loss by the Ironbirds completes the sweep of O’s affiliates at the hands of their opponents. This was actually a ridiculous game as the only run for either team scored in the bottom of the ninth.

Travis Seabrooke had an outstanding game on the mound for the Ironbirds. He pitched seven shutout innings on 81 pitches with just five hits. He walked one and struck out five.

On offense the Ironbirds had only three hits, two from second baseman Alejandro Juvier.
