Ty Blach took the loss after surrendering seven runs on nine hits and two walks while striking out two over four innings Friday against the Rays. He was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk after the game, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.
It is not a surprise that Blach is being sent down as he has really struggled with the Orioles. The 28-year-old lefty is 0-2 and has a 12.81 ERA and 2.39 WHIP with 15 strikeouts over 19 2/3 innings.
