Orioles 8/9 minor league recap: A tough day on the Baltimore farm, with a bright spot
Triple-A: Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp (Marlins) 6, Norfolk Tides 4, Inn 7. – Game 1
A 3-2 lead early in the third did not hold, as the giant shrimp came back with two in the third, one in the fifth and one in the sixth to claim the victory.
Few tides hit in this one, but Jahmai Jones, who went 3 for 4 with three singles and an RBI, was one who did. Tyler Nevin had two RBIs and Kelvin Gutierrez had one, while Konner Wade allowed six runs (four earned) in six innings to concede the loss.
Jacksonville 5, Norfolk 0, 7 hostel. – Game 2
In Game 2, a Wednesday make-up, the Tides pulled off the Bob Uecker special. “One hit? Is that all we got, one hit (expletive)?”
The hit went to Stevie Wilkerson, who doubled in the fourth quarter. Otherwise, the Tides were shut down by a quartet of pitchers from Jacksonville. Mickey Jannis started for Norfolk and allowed two runs on a four-innings hit.
Still, being a hit isn’t as bad as …
Double-A: Somerset Patriots (Yankees) 7, Bowie Baysox 0
… not being affected, this is what happened to the Baysox thanks to the Somerset trio of starting pitcher Luis Severino, Shawn Semple and Ron Marinaccio.
Bowie has been one of Double-A Northeast’s best teams this season, but he had no answer at the plate on Sunday. On the positive side, Luis Perez pitched 3.1 scoreless innings.
Hitting isn’t about to get any easier for the Baysox, either, because top prospect Adley Rutschman got the call to move to Norfolk. It’s good to see the Orioles – heck, all the best prospects in baseball – come up, and I hope Camden Yards isn’t too far away now.
High-A: Aberdeen IronBirds at Jersey Shore BlueClaws (Philly)
The match was suspended early in the third, the score being zero. The game will end on August 31st.
Low-A: Down East Wood Ducks (Rangers) 9, Delmarva Shorebirds 5, Hostel 7. – Game 1
Down East appeared to have finished early with a 5-0 lead in the first set, but Delmarva came back all the way to tie the game in the bottom of the sixth. The Wood Ducks had the last laugh, however, scoring four in the top of the seventh to regain command.
TT Bowens had three hits, including a double, in four batting appearances and scored two runs, while Cristopher Cespedes went 2 for 4 with a double and two runs batted in and Lamar Sparks had two hits and a run. product.
Gregori Vasquez pitched 3.1 innings without a hit on relief and struck out five catches.
Down East 6, Delmarva 2, 7 hostel. – Game 2
In a make-up match on Saturday, Delmarva again entered the seventh with the score tied, and once again suffered a tough loss when Down East scored four points on the board for the winning margin.
The Shorebirds only had two hits, continuing what was apparently a trend across the organization, and they were a double from Darell Hernaiz and a single from Yorkislandy Alvarez. TT Bowens and Cristopher Cespedes led the points.
Jake Lyons (four innings, two runs) took the start and Nick Roth (2.1 innings, two runs) was defeated.
