Orioles minor league recap 5/14: First-place IronBirds roll again, Rutschman gets two hits

All eyes remain on Adley Rutschman as he plays the (hopefully) final handful of games of his minor league career. And he continues to show he’s ready for the bigs, collecting a pair of hits, a walk, and an RBI in a losing effort. Brett Cumberland, perhaps jealous of a fellow catcher getting all the attention, brought in the only other Norfolk run with an RBI double. In less exciting news, Kyle Stowers went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts to dip his season average below the Mendoza line to .196. It’s been a harsh jump from Double-A to Triple-A for last year’s Orioles minor league home run leader.
