Chris Tillman is pitching tonight for Triple-A Norfolk, and he's trying to turn in back-to-back quality starts.
Tillman allowed three runs and seven hits in eight innings in his last outing against Charlotte, with no walks and five strikeouts. He threw 90 pitches, 62 for strikes. He's taking on Gwinnett tonight.
Corey Patterson has joined Norfolk's roster after signing a minor league contract and reporting to extended spring training in Sarasota.
Josh Bell has hit safely in eight of his last nine games, batting .333 with three homers and seven RBIs.
Happy 28th birthday, Jim Miller.
