Orioles minor league recap 4/6: Norfolk wins an utterly ridiculous game

Oh, my goodness. Where to even start with this one? The Tides played their most ridiculous game of an already memorable season. They scored ten (10!) runs in the top of the first inning, led by all the usual hot prospects doing even more eye-popping things. Then they failed to score any runs in the next eight innings, all while their porous pitching staff frittered away the entire 10-run lead. But Norfolk recovered to eke out a 10th-inning run for the wild victory, improving to 6-1 on the season.
