Today's game recaps -- June 15

The Triple-A Norfolk Tides beat the Louisville Bats, and the Single-A Frederick Keys topped the Winston-Salem Dash.

The Single-A Delmarva Shorebirds split a doubleheader with the Lakewood BlueClaws, and the Double-A Bowie Baysox didn't play.


I wanted to clarify an earlier note about Frederick right-hander Kenny Moreland, who started tonight against Winston-Salem. In today's game previews, I mentioned that the Keys needed to clear room for Moreland on their active roster.

However, as Keys director of broadcasting and public relations Adam Pohl pointed out, Moreland was already on the team's roster. Thanks to Adam for setting me straight. All of these recent pitching moves in the organization tricked me, but I'll try not to let it happen again.


Also, the Baysox passed along a list of their recent transactions earlier. In case you haven't kept up with the moves over the past few days, they're listed below:
