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.
