No-No for Nathan Moreau
We’ll apparently there is some talent in the minor leagues for the Orioles. If former NFL coach was available for comment, I’m sure he’d be saying the same thing he did after his Cardinals lost to the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football, “THEY ARE WHO WE THOUGHT THEY WERE!”
A minor victory for the Baltimore Orioles 2010 organization came tonight. Newly promoted Nathan Moreau tossed a no-hitter against the Salem Red Sox in his first start at High-A Frederick. Moreau, a 23-year old 2008 11th round pick of the Orioles tossed the second minor league no-no of the season. Chris Tillman threw a no hitter while he was in AAA Norfolk on April 28th.
According to the Sun (I don’t really want to research stats on a Frederick Keys player) Moreau was 2-3 with a 2.98 ERA over 16 games for the Shorebirds while starting seven of those games. Over 60 1/3 innings he struck out 70 batters.
Congratulations to Nathan Moreau and thanks for adding another bright spot in our farm system, even though we would rather hear this good news coming from the big leagues.
