Orioles top minor league pitching prospect Chris Tillman pitched Norfolk's first nine-inning no-hitter in nearly 18 years Wednesday as part of the Tides' 6-0 win at Gwinnett, the Atlanta Braves' Triple-A affiliate. Tillman, 22, allowed one walk and struck out six, throwing 105 pitches. He retired Matt Young on a groundout to Robert Andino to secure the no-hitter. Tillman's only blemish was a walk to Gwinnett designated hitter Brent Clevlen in the fifth inning. He then induced left fielder Mitch Jones to ground into a double play.

The question whether left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada was ready to join the Orioles following his rehab start for Triple-A Norfolk Thursday was answered quickly. Wada, a former standout in the Japanese Pacific League who signed a two-year, $8.14 million deal this offseason, lasted just 2 2/3 innings Thursday in his start against the Gwinnett (Ga.) Braves, allowing six runs -- all earned -- on six hits with four walks and one strikeout. Wada struggled through a 35-pitch first inning, allowing three runs on four hits in the opening frame.

Orioles left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada threw 100 pitches in an extended spring training game in Florida on Saturday, and will make his next start in a Triple-A game next week. Wada, placed on the DL on April 4 in order to give him time to elevate his pitch count, threw six scoreless innings against the Rays minor leaguers in Port Charlotte, allowing just two hits. He struck out seven but walked five. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said he's leaning toward sending Wada to Triple-A Norfolk to pitch in Thursday's game at Gwinnett (Ga.)
