The Norfolk Tides scored seven runs on eight hits, thanks to one home run, seven walks, a wild pitch, and a pitcher error; it was more than enough to beat the hapless Knights, who were held scoreless. Kade McClure pitched through trouble from the start, allowing a walk and a single in the first but holding the Tides scoreless. In the second, he was not so lucky; a leadoff bunt and a follow-up walk both scored on a double before McClure was able to escape. He came out for the third, but a single and two walks left the bases loaded as he swapped out with Tanner Banks, who gave up a sacrifice fly to score one run but induced a double play from the next batter. Banks would go three total, with no runs and just one hit charged to him.

Kevin McCarthy allowed a solo home run and nothing else in one inning, and neither Anderson Severino nor Will Carter gave up hits in their respective innings of work, although Carter walked two and made an error contributing to two unearned runs scoring. Kodi Medeiros pitched the ninth with three strikeouts, but was not unscathed, the first three batters reaching base and one scoring.

The freshly returned Romy González had two of the five Knights hits, both singles, and he also drew a walk. Blake Rutherford hit his 28th double and was also ejected after striking out swinging in the ninth. Mikie Mahtook and Zach Remillard each singled; Remillard and Danny Mendick also walked.

A late comeback wasn’t quite enough to send it to extras, so the DSL Sox fell 4-3 in seven innings to the DSL D-backs1 (boooo, DSL D-backs1). Neither team scored until the last two innings, and both teams scored all of their runs in a single half inning each. The DB1s’ came in the sixth inning (a doubleheader eighth); Sox starter Yohemy Nolasco stymied them for four scoreless, two-hit innings, but they were not so fooled by Francisco Benitez, who entered in relief. The inning started with four straight singles (and a passed ball to boot), which spelled Benitez’s departure. Daniel Gonzalez entered with the bases loaded and nobody out and immediately induced a double play ball, but allowed an RBI single to the next batter. A wild pitch, a walk, and a Victor Quezada error at third let another run in; one more might have scored but left fielder Godwin Bennett and catcher Luis Pineda combined to nail the runner at the plate.

The DSL Sox saved all three of their runs for the top of the seventh and came very close to tying it. Quezada singled to start the inning and was soon at third base with nobody out after two wild pitches. Carlos Jiménez and Pineda both walked to load the bases with nobody out, then with one out, Fernando Vargas was hit by a pitch to force in the first run of the inning. The second scored when Javier Mora hit a sacrifice fly for the second out of the inning, and the third when Alvaro Aguero reached on an infield error. Layant Tapia walked to keep the inning alive, and Manuel Guariman is certainly someone you’d like to have up in such a situation, but he grounded out to end the game.
