Checking on Zach (updated)

Zach Britton lasted four innings tonight for Triple-A Norfolk, allowing four runs (two earned) and four hits, walking two, striking out two and throwing two wild pitches. He threw 74 pitches, 35 for strikes.

I wouldn’t say he’s kicking down the door right now, but a little defensive support would have been nice. More on that later.

The Tides and Indianapolis are tied, 6-6, in the eighth.

Robert Andino is batting cleanup tonight, which strikes me as odd. He’s 1-for-3 with an RBI and two runs scored.

Andino has accounted for three of Norfolk’s five errors, raising his total to 24 - fielding, a missed throw and an errant throw.

That’s the Triple Crown of errors.

Update: Jeff Salazar and Nolan Reimold homered off Daniel Moskos in a five-run eighth inning, leading Norfolk to an 11-6 victory.

Joel Guzman hit his 24th homer for Double-A Bowie. He’s driven in three runs, raising his RBI total to 74.
