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.
