Tyler Wilson scratched with sore oblique (O’s lose 5-4 in 11 innings)

Orioles pitching prospect Tyler Wilson was scratched from today’s start at Triple-A Norfolk with a sore oblique muscle.

Veteran left-hander Dana Eveland replaced Wilson in the rotation and tossed two scoreless innings against Indianapolis. Jorge Rondon took over for Eveland in the third.

Tyler Wilson back gray.jpgWilson is 2-1 with a 2.19 ERA in six appearances with the Orioles, including two starts. He was optioned again after allowing two runs in 7 2/3 innings in a 9-2 win over the Athletics on Aug. 3.

Wilson is 5-5 with a 3.05 ERA in 16 starts with the Tides. Today’s game would have marked his first outing since being sent down.

The Orioles and Angels have moved to the 11th inning with the score tied 4-4.

Third baseman Manny Machado has collected two more hits today and is 9-for-15 in the series. Second baseman Jonathan Schoop has two more hits and is batting .316.

Schoop is 14-for-27 this month.

Gerardo Parra hit his first home run as an Oriole, and Chris Davis hit his 29th this season to tie the game in the sixth.

Miguel Gonzalez allowed four runs and seven hits in 4 2/3 innings, with two walks, six strikeouts, two wild pitches and two home runs. He threw 102 pitches and raised his ERA to 4.45.

Gonzalez has failed to work more than 5 1/3 innings in eight of his last 10 starts. The three-run homer he served up to David Murphy with two outs in the third inning came on an 0-2 fastball over the middle of the plate.

T.J. McFarland threw 2 1/3 scoreless innings, and Darren O’Day struck out two and stranded a runner in the eighth. Brad Brach has struck out three over two scoreless innings.

Update: Murphy singled over left fielder David Lough’s head with the bases loaded, two outs and the count full in the 11th inning to give the Angels a 5-4 win over the Orioles.

Chaz Roe gets the loss, as Brian Matusz let an inherited runner score.

Manager Buck Showalter gambled by having Matusz issue intentional walks to Mike Trout and Albert Pujols to load the bases and create the lefty-lefty matchup. Matusz fell behind 3-1 before the count was full, and Murphy gave the Angels the series win.
