Left-hander Michael Gonzalez, continuing his injury rehab assignment tonight at short-season Single-A Aberdeen, recorded the last two outs in the top of the fifth inning.
Gonzalez induced a pop up and struck out an Auburn batter after replacing starter Justin Anderson.
The Orioles want him to go more than one inning, so he’s expected to return for the sixth.
For those of you keeping score at home, Gonzalez has allowed three runs and eight hits in 10 innings, with one walk and 11 strikeouts, in 10 minor league games.
Update: Gonzalez gave up two hits in the sixth inning, both with two outs, including a home run to Oliver Dominguez. He’s charged with one run and two hits, with two strikeouts, in 1 2/3 innings.
Gonzalez has allowed three home runs in 11 innings, including two in the New York-Penn League.
