Orioles minor league recap 4/20: Kjerstad, Povich help Norfolk snap 10-game skid

It’s over! It’s finally over. The Tides’ 10-game losing streak, which saw them plummet from the best team in minor league baseball into a sub-.500 straggler in the blink of an eye, came to an end at last. Prospects Cade Povich and Heston Kjerstad deserve the bulk of the accolades. Povich, the Orioles’ top pitching prospect, continued his stellar start to 2024 by tossing 5.1 shutout innings and racking up nine strikeouts. He did walk four, a season high, but when your season ERA is 0.83, that can be forgiven. Garrett Stallings and Kaleb Ort handled the rest of the mound duties with little trouble, with Jacksonville’s only run coming on a solo homer by Griffin Conine, son of former Oriole and Marlin Jeff.
