Mamma always said there’d be days like these, and when a rain out is the best result your MiLB affiliates can produce, it’s one of those days. Let’s review the carnage.
Charlotte 11, Norfolk 4
Gabriel Ynoa didn’t have it last night, as he gave up seven runs and 10 hits over 2 2/3 innings. Oof. Johnny Giavotella did go 3-for-5 and Paul Janish went 3-for-4, so at least someone had a decent night.
Bowie at Akron - POSTPONED
And honestly, given how the rest of the night went for Orioles’ affiliates, it was probably for the best.
Carolina 15, Frederick 11
The good news? Ryan Mountcastle homered and doubled, scoring two runs, while Randolph Gassaway and Stephen Wilkerson drove in two runs each as well. The bad news? Pretty much anything pitching-related. 2016 second-round draft pick Keegan Akin didn’t get out of the first inning in his High-A debut, allowing 6 ER on 4 H and 3 BB. Jay Flaa was the only Keys pitcher not to give up at least two runs. Ouch.
Greenville 3, Delmarva 2
Greenville took advantage of an badly-timed error in the second inning to score the three runs they needed. Delmarva shortstop Irving Ortega made three of the four Shorebirds errors in the game. No Shorebird had more than one hit, and only CF Ryan McKenna reached base twice with the help of a walk.
