Richmond took a 2-1 lead with a pair of unearned runs in the fourth.Slade Heathcott led off with a single and later scored when Chris Shaw hit a ball that went through Rodriguez’s legs at first and rolled down the right field line. Shaw came around to score when the next batter Hunter Cole delivered an RBI double.


In the top of the fifth, the Flying Squirrels plated three runs with two outs to extend the lead to 5-1 as Shaw, Brandon Bednar and Gomez all knocked home runs with RBI singles in the frame.

Mullins has cooled off.  Austin Wynns is hot.  I feel bad for Jon Keller.  His confidence must be shot.  He's gotta be close to a demotion or worse.  He threw strikes at Delmarva but he's gotten progressively worse since then.


Wynn's just keeps improving as he moves through the system.

I think Mullins has settled in a bit now. He might not repeat the way he started the season, but I think he will pick things up again soon.

Hopefully Keller wasn't THAT bad last night and the rain played a part of his struggle. 

Wynns is...Well, Wynns. 9 game hit streak now, multi hit game in over half of them, and was bumped up to second in the line up. Also had 2 walks. To say that I am happy for him would he an understatement.

Who has more chance of catching games in the big leagues next season, Chance Sisco or Austin Wynns?  I think, unfortunately, its a valid question.

Sisco is having a large issue with his defense in Norfolk this season already. But, let's see how the entire season goes. If things stay the same...Wynns.

I'm not sure I'd use the word "unfortunate."    The fact that Wynns is developing nicely is a big positive.    I do think the question is valid, in part due to Sisco's defensive issues but also due to great progress by Wynns.

    • I mean I do agree with the many people who say here that if Cowser or Kjerstad or some other hitter emerges as good or better than Santander, then yes of course it makes sense to trade him.   But I just don't trust prospect rankings.  Don't assume a player will be as good as high as he ranked until he proves it over a period of time.  In 2016 Jorge Mateo was the Yankees top prospect, just ahead of Aaron Judge -- just to name one example.  For this reason I think Santander hangs around a little awhile -- unless the O's trade for or sign a replacement outfield bat prior to the season -- in addition to trading Santander.  
    • But the Rays did lock up some of their best hitters -- mainly Evan Longoria and Wander Franco.  I know Santander is not at that level, but I think there's a good chance Santander is with the team to start next season.  I think it's a mistake to assume someone is ready to take over for him until he proves it.  If not then trade for or sign someone who is -- if he must be traded now or pretty soon.  I don't trust prospect rankings.  In 2016 Jorge Mateo was the Yankees top prospect, just ahead of Aaron Judge.   Also, the Orioles don't really have the pitching in the minors the way the Rays always seem to.  Can't imagine Means or any decent pitcher getting traded for that reason.  And for a long time the Rays weren't a very good hitting team, which I think is a big reason the Rays never tried to lock up their position players until guys like Evan Longoria started to emerge, though there may be a bit more to it than that.  
    • 49ers QB Brock Purdy had UCL repair with InternalBrace. Here’a a summary comparing the two. I’m sure Bautista and his medical team will closely consider the best course for his circumstance.    https://www.armoredheat.com/armored-heat-blog/tommy-john-vs-ucl-repair
    • Building on some of the other posts, the ‘83 Orioles lost 5 of their last 7, giving up 40 runs in those seven.  In 9 postseason games they gave up 12 total runs. I have no idea if the O’s bats will wake up or struggle.  I have no idea if the bullpen can get tough outs without a weapon like Bautista available.  And I have no idea how the starters will perform in the intensity of the postseason.   But unlike fans of 22 other teams next Saturday we can find out!
    • To me, just winning the AL East division was a great accomplishment in itself!
    • I'm talking about trading one of our starting outfielders to make room for one or two of our top prospects and replenish our farm system at the lower levels. Elias has been great at finding great young talent. Not sure we need to sign any free agents, at least expensive ones. If we're going to spend big money it should go to Adley or Gunnar.
