Bowie catcher Steve Torrealba was named Eastern League Player of the Week after hitting .409 during a week in which the Baysox clinched their first playoff berth since 1997 and moved close to the first division title in their history. They were off yesterday before heading into their final seven games of the regular season.

The Orioles will call up a catcher on Sept. 1, and Torrealba is a candidate along with Triple-A catchers Chris Heintz and Omir Santos.

Norfolk pitcher Craig Anderson (7-8) gave up just a run on seven hits over 6 1/3 innings in a 4-1 victory over Charlotte. He got off to a rocky start this year, but is 5-0 with a 3.05 ERA since the All-Star break.

The Frederick Keys got a one-hitter by committee last night when starter Jake Renshaw had to be placed on the minor league disabled list before the game. Five relievers -- Brett Bordes, Ryan Ouellette, Mick Mattaliano, Jose Barajas and Ryan Rodriguez -- combined to pitch the one-hit shutout. Brandon Snyder and Miguel Abreu had three hits each in the 5-0 victory.
