Brandon Waring hit a two-run homer today for Double-A Bowie, which is locked in a 2-2 tie with Akron in the seventh inning.
Waring is playing third base and batting cleanup for the Baysox.
Tim Bascom allowed one run and three hits in five innings. He also struck out six and left the game with his ERA at 0.82.
Don’t forget that Bascom was selected one round ahead of Jake Arrieta. The Orioles didn’t want to wait and risk losing him.
He isn’t mentioned with the rest of the cavalry, but he’s definitely worth tracking this season.
Single-A Frederick’s Billy Rowell is 1-for-2 with two RBIs, a walk and a run scored. He’s serving as the designated hitter again while working out at third base.
I’m glad the Orioles ended the outfield experiment. Bad idea from the start. The kid was laboring at the plate, so go ahead and clog his head more by forcing him to learn a new position that he couldn’t handle.
