The IronBirds’ 2011 season was a complete nightmare, as the loss of the Bluefield Orioles affiliate forced a number of young prospects to short-season A who were clearly not ready to handle the more advanced competition.
Manny Machado went 1 for 4 with a double and a strikeout in a 1-0 Frederick Keys loss.
Joe Mahoney went 2 for 4 with a double in a 5-1 Bowie Baysox loss.
Roderick Bernadina went 2 for 4 with 2 runs, a home run, 2 RBI, and a walk in a 9-6 GCL Orioles win.
Steve Bumbry went 4 for 4 with 3 runs, 2 doubles, a home run, and an RBI in a 7-2 Frederick Keys win.
L.J. Hoes went 2 for 3 with 2 runs, an RBI, and a walk in a 7-3 Bowie Baysox win.
Ryan Berry pitched 5 scoreless innings, allowing 1 hit with 5 strikeouts in a 3-2 Aberdeen IronBirds win.
Glynn Davis went 2 for 6 with a run and an RBI in a 7-3 Aberdeen IronBirds win.
L.J. Hoes hit two more home runs as the Baysox won both games of their double header.
