Minor league game recaps -- May 20

The Triple-A Norfolk Tides routed the Pawtucket Red Sox, and the Double-A Bowie Baysox beat the Binghamton Mets. The Single-A Frederick Keys lost to the Potomac Nationals, while the Single-A Delmarva Shorebirds were beaten by the Hagerstown Suns.

Earlier today, the Keys placed infielders L.J. Hoes and Greg Miclat on the disabled list. Hoes' move is retroactive to May 18.

As I told you earlier, Miclat injured his ankle sliding into second base last night. Hoes has been battling strep throat and hasn't played since May 15.

Norfolk Tides (AAA)

Score: Norfolk Tides 8, Pawtucket Red Sox 1 (Box score)

Recap: Starting pitcher Jake Arrieta (4-2) struck out 10 batters in seven scoreless innings as the Tides cruised to an 8-1 win over Pawtucket at Harbor Park.

Arrieta allowed four hits and issued two walks, throwing 75 of his 111 pitches for strikes.

Norfolk second baseman Scott Moore was 2-for-3 with a double, three RBIs and a run scored, while designated hitter Brandon Snyder also had two hits and three RBIs.

Shortstop Robert Andino hit a solo home run and scored twice for the Tides, and right fielder Jeff Salazar added two hits and an RBI.

Tides left fielder Nolan Reimold was 0-for-3 with a walk and a run scored. In seven games since being demoted, Reimold is 2-for-22 (.091) with one home run and two RBIs.

Bowie Baysox (AA)

Score: Bowie Baysox 8, Binghamton Mets 4 (Box score)

Recap: Designated hitter Joel Guzman had a double and three RBIs as the Baysox topped Binghamton, 8-4, in the series finale.

Bowie catcher Caleb Joseph and first baseman Robbie Widlansky each collected three hits, while center fielder Matt Angle was 2-for-5 with a stolen base, two runs scored and an outfield assist.

Baysox starting pitcher Tim Bascom (3-2) allowed four runs (two earned) and seven hits in five innings, and relief pitcher Mike Hinckley tossed two scoreless frames in his season debut.

Shortstop Pedro Florimon Jr. committed his 12th error for Bowie.

Frederick Keys (A)

Score: Potomac Nationals 7, Frederick Keys 5 (Box score)

Recap: First baseman Joe Mahoney was 2-for-4 with a double and three RBIs, but the Keys failed to sweep Potomac in a 7-5 loss at Harry Grove Stadium.

Frederick shortstop Bobby Stevens was 2-for-3 with a home run and two RBIs, and center fielder Xavier Avery added a single, a stolen base and a run scored.

Keys starting pitcher Oliver Drake (0-1) suffered the loss after giving up five runs (four earned), six hits and four walks in 3 2/3 innings.

Delmarva Shorebirds (A)

Score: Hagerstown Suns 10, Delmarva Shorebirds 6 (Box score)

Recap: Catcher Michael Ohlman hit his first professional home run and knocked in two RBIs, but the Shorebirds dropped a 10-6 decision to Hagerstown at Arthur W. Perdue Stadium.

Delmarva designated hitter Tyler Kelly contributed three hits and an RBI, while right fielder Brian Conley and third baseman Tyler Kolodny each added two hits, an RBI and a run scored.

Defensively, it was ugly for Delmarva.

Kolodny committed his 12th and 13th errors in the game, while shortstop Garabez Rosa matched him with his 13th defensive miscue this season.

Starting pitcher Tony Butler (1-4) was charged with eight runs (six earned) and nine hits in 3 2/3 innings for the Shorebirds.

While Nolan said all the right things after being told he was being sent down is batting average makes me wonder where his head and his heart is at.

About the bloggers
A Baltimore native, Dan Connolly has been covering sports for 14 years, and baseball and the Orioles for 10 seasons, including the past six with The Sun. His first year covering baseball on a daily basis was Cal Ripken Jr.'s final season as a player. It's believed that is just a coincidence.

Steve Gould is an assistant sports editor for The Sun, overseeing Orioles coverage. The Columbia native joined The Sun as a sports copy editor in 2006 after graduating from the University of Maryland.

Peter Schmuck has been covering baseball for a lot longer than Steve Gould has been on this earth. He is now a general sports columnist, but has been a beat writer covering three major league teams (the Dodgers, Angels and Orioles) and also spent a decade as the Sun's national baseball writer. If you want more of his insight on the Orioles and other sports issues, check out his personal blog -- The Schmuck Stops Here.
