Norfolk Tides 4, Lehigh Valley (Phillies) 3
The Tides scored all four of their runs in the sixth inning or later to come back and beat the Iron Pigs. They faced a 2-0 deficit after Gabriel Ynoa was unable to complete the fifth inning. Ynoa allowed two runs on six hits and a walk in 4.1 innings, striking out five. It's another of the sort of outings to explain why so many of the Norfolk shuttle guys have stayed in Norfolk.
Though Norfolk only hit 2-11 with RISP and left eleven men on base, they were able to do enough to win. Catcher Chance Sisco was 2-5 on the night, with a pair of doubles. He also was not able to throw out either of the Lehigh Valley runners who took off against him.
Bowie Baysox - OFF
Frederick Keys - OFF
Delmarva Shorebirds - Postponed, rain
Tri-City (Astros) 4, Aberdeen IronBirds 3
Aberdeen broke a 1-1 tie with two runs in the top of the eighth, then they gave up three runs in the bottom of the inning and ended up losing the contest. They are now 27-20, which leaves them a half-game behind Staten Island (Yankees) for the lead in the McNamara Division of the short-season New York-Penn League.
Both teams had only five hits in the game.
The Orioles 26th round pick, Cameron Bishop, a guy you might remember as being the one who the Orioles only signed a week later because they didn't submit the paperwork before the deadline, started for Aberdeen. He held the ValleyCats to a run on three hits and three walks in five innings.
Bishop struck out five batters. He'd only thrown 64 pitches, so he probably could have gone farther. The Orioles tend to not push their current year college draftees too hard.
Since this was a small slate of games, let's check in all the way down in the rookie-level Gulf Coast League.
GCL Orioles 6, GCL Twins 0
This is good stuff right here. The O's held the Twins to just one hit in the game - they picked up 12 themselves, driving in their six runs with 3-10 hitting with RISP.
32nd round pick Max Hogan, 30th round pick Will Robertson, and 15th round pick J.C. Escarra had two hits apiece for the GCL O's. Hogan and Escarra each added a walk as well.
The GCL O's starter was Gray Fenter, the 2015 seventh round pick who got Tommy John surgery a few months after being drafted. Fenter pitched three perfect innings against the Twins on Monday, striking out two batters.
