Rich Hill Pitches Well in Norfolk

April 30, 2009 | Tom Clayton

Rich Hill started for Norfolk tonight and walked away with a loss. 


His final line was:

3.1IP   2ER    1Hit    1HR Allowed   1BB’s  5K’s(4 looking)

Hill was placed on a pitch limit of 60-65 pitches; he was pulled after his 63rd pitch.



The Orioles plans are to start Hill again on Monday and potentially stretch him out to 100 pitches.


By my guess if all goes well Monday he may be called up Friday for the start of the Orioles three game series against the Yankees.
