He told media gathered at his introductory press conference that he pledges to restore the luster and winning ways back into an Orioles franchise that has fallen on hard times over several years. Plus, the team is in a tough division, the AL East which has the Yankees, Boston, Tampa Bay and Toronto, all whom are better than Baltimore.

The 54-year-old Showalter, has built contending teams before with the Arizona Diamondbacks, New York Yankees and Texas Rangers.

The Orioles, 32-73, the worst team in the majors this season, will be a monumental challenge for Showalter, who is known for his no-non sense, attention to detail, preparation and ability to work with young talent.

Showalter was hired last week, but his first game will be Tuesday (today) against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim at Camden Yards.

Info courtesy of Frederick Keys and Minor League Baseball

Nathan Moreau made a big impression in his Carolina League debut last week.

After joining the Frederick Keys on the road in Salem early in the afternoon on Wednesday, the Baltimore Orioles prospect threw the second, nine-inning complete-game no-hitters in team history as the Keys beat the Red Sox, 7-0.

A former 11th-round Orioles Draft pick out of the University of Georgia, Moreau struck out six and did not walk a batter. Two Salem hitters reached base on errors; one of them by Moreau himself on a bunt attempt in the sixth inning.

It was the first no-hitter in the Carolina League since Winston-Salem’s Levi Maxwell threw a seven-inning gem against Wilmington on June 19, 2009. The last nine-inning no-hitter was a combined effort by Frederick’s Brandon Erbe, Ryan Ouellette and Fredy Deza, against Salem on August 5, 2008.

Nathan Moreau’s historic effort was the sixth no-hitter in Keys history and the first nine-inning complete- game no-hitter since July 3, 1991, when Erik Schullstrom shut down the Kinston Indians at Harry Grove Stadium.

Moreau retired the first 16 batters in a row and only faced 2 batters over the minimum for the game (29).

The Salem Red Sox entered the game ranked second in the Carolina League in team batting at .269.

Moreau spent the 2009 season in the rotation at Class A Delmarva, going 5-3 with a 3.61 ERA in 20 starts. But he started the 2010 season in the Delmarva Shorebirds’ bullpen, making nine relief appearances. He was elevated to the rotation on May 18 and was sharp in seven starts, going 2-1 with a 1.88 ERA while holding South Atlantic League hitters to a .182 average.

Shin-Soo Choo, Mitch Talbot lead Tribe over Reds; win ends skid


CINCINNATI, OHIO — The Cleveland Indians ought to play the Cincinnati Reds with only Shin-Soo Choo and Mitch Talbot. Maybe those two can win games as a duo.

Just kidding of course, two men can’t beat nine but it sure looked that way on Sunday.

Shinn-Soo Choo Indians (mlb)

Shin-Soo Choo was named by the media the Ohio Cup series Most Outstanding Player after batting .391 (9-23) with 4 homers and 7 RBI’S in 6 games.

Great American Ball Park (

Shin Soo-Choo homered twice off Bronson Arroyo, the second time he’s accomplished that this season and the Cleveland Indians ended their seven-game losing streak on Sunday, beating the Cincinnati Reds 5-3.

Choo belted a solo homer in the first inning and a three-run shot in the fifth off Arroyo (7-4), who can’t seem to get him out. Choo homered twice off Arroyo on May 21 during the Reds 7-4 win in Cleveland.

All told, Choo is 6 for 12 against Arroyo and always sees the ball good against him.

Vote Reds into the All-Star Game (

Indians rookie Mitch Talbot (8-6) held the NL’s most prolific lineup to three harmless singles in seven innings.

The right-handed Talbot is one of the American League’s best pitcher’s on the road. He retired 12 in a row over one stretch in the game.

Kerry Wood, struck out the side in the ninth inning for his sixth save in nine tries, ending the Reds’ five-game winning streak.

Wins against the National League are rare and hard to come by for the Indians. They completed the 2010 interleague schedule at 5-13 and 2-4 against their Interstate 71 rivals, the Cincinnati Reds. Cincinnati has dominated the series as of late, going 13-5 over the last three years.

The Reds are still a 1/2 game ahead of St. Louis, who lost again to Kansas City in the “Show-Me State” series of Missouri.

The start of the game was delayed 1 hour and 21 minutes by a storm. The game started at 2:31 p.m.
