After being shut down for two days with lingering discomfort in his right shoulder, Scott homered twice and drove in six runs tonight in seven innings at Double-A Bowie.
It appears that he’s done for the night. I don’t think another at-bat is necessary.
Scott drove in a run in the first inning with a ground ball, launched a two-run homer to center field in the third, stroked a two-run double to right in the fifth and hit a solo homer to left-center in the seventh.
Scott has three homers in three injury rehab games with Bowie. He’s served as the designated hitter in all three games, a role he could handle with the Orioles while Vladimir Guerrero remains on the disabled list. Guerrero is eligible to return Tuesday in Toronto.
The Baysox lead 8-6 heading to the top of the eighth.
By the way, Chorye Spoone threw 2 1/3 scoreless innings in relief tonight after clearing waivers and being outrighted to Bowie. He allowed one hit, walked two and struck out two.
