Nats' No. 3 overall prospect Cole Henry with a solid outing against a Bowie lineup that featured top O's prospects Adley Rutschman, Gunnar Henderson & Jordan Westburg.
Henry gave up 1 run, 1 hit & 5 walks while striking out 4 in 2.2 innings. ERA at 0.57 through 5 starts.
Final - Harrisburg 6, Bowie 1, Baysox held to 4 hits.
But Rutschman went 2-for-4 with a BB and is 5-for-12 in 3 Bowie games. Jordan Westburg 1-for-3 with 2 BBs.
DL Hall allowed 2 runs on 3 hits in 3.2 IP, throwing 59/47 and the runs scored after he left the game.
Batting average is an antiquated stat and it’s still very early in the season but Jordan Westburg is now batting .190 on the season at AA. People were actually saying he should be in Baltimore already.
I was actually surprised Prieto didn’t immediately start in Double-A Bowie. I’d imagine his promotion to Bowie will be well in-line with Jordan Westburg’s possibly imminent promotion to Triple-A Norfolk. One infielder out, one infielder in. https://t.co/ltKUpECIKG
Everybody knows the Orioles have a lot of talent at the minor league level, specifically at Shortstop. @G_Henderson2 says it's all friendly competition between him, Jordan Westburg, and Joey Ortiz. They all want to see each other do the best they can.
Also ICYMI this week's visit with the @BowieBaysox brought us @G_Henderson2 as we discussed their WILD win last night and competing with Joey Ortiz & Jordan Westburg to be the shortstop while they all hope to win a #WorldSeries with the #Orioles together. https://t.co/hIVtIYY136
Bowie had 2 outs in the 1st inning and then:
Knocks out Akron's starter
Jordan Westburg with two doubles in the 1st inning. 8 runs all scored with 2 outs for Bowie.
Going through some photos I took at the Bowie and Aberdeen games last week and decided to share some of my favorites. Batters shown are Jordan Westburg, Hudson Haskin, and Gunnar Henderson https://t.co/Nw1MKbgeuo
Little farm info: Norfolk closed the gap, down 5-4 in the 7th. Robert Neustrom with 3 hits including his 2nd HR of 22. Bowie up 11-6 in 8th. Hudson Haskin with 3 homers, Jordan Westburg with 1. Aberdeen up 6-4 in 8th, Rhodes with 3 hits, Prieto with 2. Delmarva losing 2-0 in 5th
Last night down on the Orioles farm, Norfolk won a close game, Jordan Westburg hit his first homer of the season in a Bowie loss, Connor Norby and Colton Cowser helped Aberdeen to a victory, and Delmarva had a stinker. https://t.co/MWMHtAg4NJ
The future of the Orioles’ infield is in Double-A Bowie, and they already have championship aspirations.
“If we can all come up at the same time, that goal of winning the World Series, the last game of the season, is next up,” Jordan Westburg said.
@MotyRavenChabin I will take any and all relevant circumstances to advocate for Jordan Westburg's promotion to Baltimore. I want him and Gunnar Henderson on the left side of the IF by August 1, latest.
