Feat of Cla (updated twice)

Cla Meredith entered tonight's Triple-A game in the eighth inning with Norfolk leading Rochester, 3-1, and proceeded to give up two runs on three hits.

This might take a while.

Meredith threw 30 pitches, 19 for strikes.

Fortunately for the Tides, Matt Angle singled in the ninth to score Joey Gathright and give Norfolk a 4-3 lead.

Left-hander Chris George limited Rochester to an unearned run and five hits over 6 2/3 innings. Is he a specialist in the making?

Dennis Sarfate picked up his fourth save with a perfect ninth, lowering his ERA to 1.15.

Nolan Reimold went 2-for-5 with a run. He's batting .148. Josh Bell went 1-for-3 with a double, two walks, a run scored and his ninth error.

Remember Brad Hennessey, my darkhorse pick in spring training 2009? He allowed a run and two hits in one inning for the Red Wings.

Double-A Bowie's Steve Johnson got back on track by holding Binghamton to two runs (both on homers) and three hits in six innings, with one walk and eight strikeouts. He's 2-3 with a 4.30 ERA.

Jim Hoey tossed two scoreless innings in relief, with three strikeouts.

Catcher Caleb Joseph went 2-for-4 with his fourth home run and two RBIs. He's hitting .280.

Oh yeah, the Orioles lost, 3-1. Two-out error lets two unearned runs score. Can't score in the ninth with the potential tying run (Matt Wieters) at the plate. And so it goes.
