Akin tonight had an outing we’ve been seeing a lot of lately from him: 5 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 6 K’s.  At least he kept the walks down.

Low-ish WHIP, good K/9.  Where are the ER coming from?  Is it a sequencing thing?

He was 0 walks and 6 strikeouts after 3.  Looked like he had it going until he didn't.  I see him starting 2019 either in Norfolk's rotation or Baltimore's bullpen.

I watched most of his start, the 2 run HR he gave up was absolutely a juiced ball HR.  It looked like a pop up off the bat that just carried over the RF wall.  Mason Williams seemed shocked it went out and so did the announcers.

Well, he’ll have that to look forward to in Baltimore too, lol... 😑

The more I see of Akin this year the more I have him pegged for the pen. I'd like to see a velocity bump if he does get moved there eventually.

I think we almost have to see what he can do as a starter in Baltimore.  Other than Means, we don't have bodies - with Cashner traded and Bundy injured.  .  

Hopefully starting the clock isn't an issue for someone who projects as a 5th starter/reliever.

Yeah, I would have no issue with eventually giving him some starts this year if needed. He'll have some good ones, but he's probably going to be a 5 to 6 inning starter at best and will have days where it's going to get ugly the second time through the lineup.

Still only 6 HR total given up this year. 

He also has the 5th highest SO/9 at 10.7. It’s the BB that is hurting him. 4.6 BB/9. Up 0.8 from Bowie. 

I’ll chalk it up to the MLB juiced ball, poor OF defense, and better comp. 

The Bowie guys might have it different next year OF Defense wise. Instead of having Stewart/Mountcastle, Mullins, Williams/Santander. They will have Mullins/Hays, Mckenna, Diaz.

Akin took the loss tonight.

Lasted only 3 innings (68 pitches/41 strikes), 5 hits (2 doubles), 3 runs (all earned), 2 walks, 2 strike outs.

He hasn't pitched deep into games at all and gets into high pitch counts early.

Akin hasn’t pitched well over the last 2+ months.    Very disappointing season for him.

    • That is up to Mullins.   He is on the 40 man roster.  He will be in ST.   If he hits well  at Norfolk then he could be promoted to the O's.
    • He should’ve. Probably would’ve lashed it for a double. 
    • I'll take a crack .....Harvey has a 97mph + fastball that's deemed plus and a plus curveball and Hader. Hader has a low 90s fastball with a lot of movement. The reason he's been so successful is that his slider drastically improved from 2017 to 2018 in regards to his control.
    • Agreed ...but he looked much better the last start as well.
    • Ponies Stave Off Baysox, 4-3 Ripken records first Double-A home run.   BOWIE, Md. – Andres Gimenez drove in the go-ahead run in the eighth inning to lead the Binghamton Rumble Ponies to a 4-3 win over the Bowie Baysox in front of 2,236 at Prince George's Stadium Tuesday night.   Bowie (39-20) jumped out to a quick lead with a run in the first inning. A double and a flared single put runners on the corners for Carlos Perez, who beat out a potential double play to drive in Ryan McKenna on a fielder's choice.    Binghamton (26-36) tied the game on a bases-loaded walk in the second inning and took a 2-1 lead on a throwing error from Perez in the third inning. The hosts, however, answered in the bottom half of the third.   RHP Zach Lee had retired nine in a row until Jesse Valentin flared a single to shallow right-center field. One pitch later, Ryan Ripken lined a missile off the top of the right field billboards for his first career Double-A home run and a 3-2 lead.    Gimenez launched his seventh home run of the season to right-center field to immediately re-tie the game in the fifth inning, and then put the guests ahead with a RBI single in the eighth inning off reliever Zach Muckenhirn.    The Baysox and Rumble Ponies conclude their season series Wednesday afternoon at 12:05 p.m., when RHP Cody Sedlock (1-1, 2.95 ERA) seeks his second straight win against RHP Tommy Wilson (4-5, 4.57 ERA) during Summer Camp Day at the ballpark.
