Norfolk 4, Syracuse (Walgreens) 4
Robert Andino somehow has four home runs on the year, and his fourth came last night in the Tides win. Call him up for the Boston series next week! Johnny Giavotella went 2-for-4 with a double to boost his batting average to .290. (I know, I know, but they don’t list OPS in the box score, OK?)
Tyler Wilson went 4.0 IP scoreless, but took 83 pitches to do it, giving up two walks and four hits while striking out one. Damien Magnifico was, well, not so magnifico giving up four runs and six hits in 1.0 IP but still got the win, because pitcher wins are stupid.
Bowie 1, Akron (Indians) 6
Matthew Grimes took the loss with 5.0 IP and giving up three runs and four hits, including a home run. Rehabbing Orioles closer Zach Britton came on in the 6th, and got two outs while throwing 28 pitches, giving up a home run, walking two and striking out one.
Frederick 11, Carolina (Brewers) 9
Ofelky Peralta, perhaps my personal favorite Orioles pitching prospect, had a rough night, lasting just 1.2 IP and giving up five runs on two hits and four (?!?!?) walks. Reliever Christian Turnipseed got the win despite giving up two runs in just 1.2 IP because, again, pitcher wins are stupid.
The Keys scored 11 runs without a home run and just 3 extra base hits (all doubles), as three Keys hitters had two hits and four had one hit. Jomar Reyes continued to rake, going 2-for-5 with 2 RBI (yeah, I know, RBI). Stephen Wilkerson and Drew Tubin each collected two walks.
Delmarva 1, Charleston (Satan’s Spawn) 3
It’s tempting to call Zach Muckenhirn the hard luck loser, but when you give up nine hits in just 5.0 IP, that label doesn’t apply. Reliever Cody Dube pitched 4.0 IP of scoreless relief to give the Shorebirds a chance to get back into the game, but the bats were cold all night. Jake Ring and Preston Palmeiro each went 2-four-4, but that was about it for hitting. The ‘Birds struck out a total of 11 times. That’s not gonna work, boys.
