Outfield prospect Nolan Reimold continues to hammer the ball and make an argument for promotion to the majors. He hit his seventh home run during tonight's game at Scranton/Wilkes Barre and currently is 2 for 3 in the game, which has raised his average to .414. He has driven in two runs tonight and has 21 in 19 games. The game is still in progress.
Matt Wieters is not ending the month on quite the same roll. He's hitless in three at-bats and his batting average is down at .250. He has one homer and five RBI in 13 games after missing some time with a sore hamstring.
Bowie pitcher Brandon Erbe finally got some offensive (and defensive) support yesterday. The Baysox banged out 15 hits and Erbe got his first victory in four decisions, even though his ERA is 0.90 and his WHIP is 0.95. Teammates Jake Arrieta finished the month with a 2-0 record and a 2.00 ERA and Troy Patton went 2-0 with a 1.21 ERA. All three pitchers made four starts.
Brian Matusz also made four starts at Class-A Frederick and was 2-1 with a 3.32 ERA. He struck out 26 in 21 1/3 innings.
