Mikey O'Brien with a 7-inning no-hitter for Frederick


Recommended Posts

Any grown man who still goes by the name Mikey is cool with me!

1 walk, 9 ks to boot.

I was wondering who he was. 25 years old...

O'Brien was orginally drafted by the New York Yankees in the ninth round of the 2008 draft. The Orioles have acquired him twice in the last year. First they signed him over the winter as a minor league free agent. They then lost him to Tampa Bay in the minor league phase of the Rule 5 draft. When the Rays released him in late May, the O's added O'Brien for the second time.

A winner of his last two starts, O'Brien has not allowed a run in his last 17 1/3 innings and has not allowed an earned run in his last 19 1/3 frames for Frederick.

In case you wondered, in his first start since the no-no,

"Mikey O'Brien (3-5) didn't allow a hit until an infield RBI single to Keller in third, which was the first hit he had allowed in 9.2 innings. The run, an unearned tally due to a Caronia error on an Estarlin Martinez groundball in the inning, was the first of the game.

O'Brien served an RBI double to Martinez in the fifth, the first earned run he had given up in his last 23.2 frames. The Nationals added another run on an O'Brien wild pitch to make it 3-0.

O'Brien lasted just 4.2 innings, allowed three runs (two earned) in the loss. Garrett Cortright got the last out of the fifth, but he allowed his first earned run since May 30 with Low-A Delmarva, a streak of 36.1 innings. Four runs on four hits and an error against Cortright pushed the game out of reach at 7-0."
