Four Norfolk hurlers combined to hold the Syracuse Chiefs to six hits and Christian Walker had a clutch RBI single as the Tides won a 2-1 contest Wednesday afternoon at NBT Bank Stadium.

With the score knotted at 1-1 in the ninth, Chris Parmelee worked a leadoff walk off of Rich Hill (2-2) before moving to second one batter later on a walk to Steve Clevenger. Walker then greeted new Chiefs hurler Sam Runion with a single to center field, plating Parmelee and giving Norfolk a 2-1 advantage.

Tides closer Oliver Drake made sure the lead held up, as he struck out the side in the ninth to earn his sixth save of the season.

Norfolk starter Mike Wright worked the first five innings of the contest and yielded one run on three hits. Wright struggled with his command as he set a career-high with five walks, but he worked in and out of trouble and left the game with the contest tied 1-1.

Michael Bowden followed Wright and tossed two shutout innings before giving way to Pedro Beato (3-1), who earned the win by working a scoreless eighth.

Walker and Parmelee combined for four of Norfolk's six hits, as the Tides wrapped up their season-long 10-game road trip with a 5-5 record.

Bowie, Md. - Baysox outfielder Glynn Davis hit a walk-off home run to lead-off the bottom of the 11th inning in the Baysox 7-6 win over Akron Wednesday night. The win was the Baysox season-high fifth-in-a-row and will allow the team to try for a four-game home sweep against Akron tomorrow afternoon.

The Baysox led 6-2 after the second inning, but Akron slowly worked back to a 6-6 tie after four innings. No more runs were scored until the Davis game-winning home run in the 11th inning. In total, six batters were hit by pitches in the game, including three by Baysox reliever Andrew Triggs. Despite the extra baserunners, the Baysox bullpen pitched 7.1 scoreless innings on Wednesday.

Baltimore Orioles infielders J.J. Hardy and Ryan Flaherty were once again in the Baysox lineup, playing in Bowie on Major League Rehab Assignments. The duo combined to go 3-for-9 with two runs and two RBIs coming on a Ryan Flaherty home run in the second inning. After three games for the Baysox, both Hardy and Flaherty are 4-for-12.

As they have done very well during this series, the Baysox scored first in the bottom of the first inning. Mike Yastrzemski drew a lead-off walk and Hardy followed with a one-out single to center field. With two outs, Garabez Rosa brought both runners home with a single to right field. Rosa later scored when Jason Esposito reached on a fielding error by Akron shortstop Erik Gonzalez.

The RubberDucks got two runs back in the top of the second inning against Baysox starter Tim Berry. Anthony Gallas hit a lead-off single to left field and Destin Hood followed with a double to left-center field. Yandy Diaz then singled to center field to bring home the first run of the inning and Hood later scored on a Bryson Myles groundout to make the score 3-2.

Bowie added three more runs in the bottom half of the inning. Chris O'Brien hit a lead-off double to right-center field to extend his team-leading hitting streak to 15 games. Michael Burgess then brought him home with a double to left field and Flaherty added the final two runs with a home run to right field that gave the Baysox a 6-2 lead.

Akron got another pair of runs in the top of the third inning. Todd Hankins drew a one-out walk and moved to second base when Gonzalez reached on a fielding error by Esposito at third base. With two outs, Hood doubled through the hole at shortstop to bring both runners home and make the score 6-4.

The RubberDucks tied the game in the top of the fourth inning. Tony Wolters opened the inning by being hit-by-a-pitch and Myles followed with a single to left field. Wolters later scored on a sacrifice fly and with two outs, Myles scored on a Hankins double to left field after stealing second base to tie the game 6-6.

Davis broke the tie with his walk-off home run, his first of the season, to left field off Akron reliever Jacob Lee in the bottom of the 11th inning to make the final score 7-6.

Berry threw 3.2 innings and allowed six runs (four earned) on six hits while striking out two and walking one in the no decision. Triggs threw 3.1 scoreless innings in relief, allowing two hits and one walk while striking out three. Reliever Kenn Kasparek pitched the final four scoreless innings for the Baysox, not allowing a hit and striking out two in the win.

FREDERICK, Md.-The Frederick Keys and the Winston-Salem Dash were suspended in the bottom of the fifth inning due to rain on Wednesday night at Nymeo Field. This contest will be completed on Thursday morning starting at 11 a.m. and will be followed by a seven-inning game to complete the series.

Currently, the Dash hold a 3-2 lead with 4.5 innings completed. Winston-Salem grabbed a 2-0 lead in the first off Keys starter Mitch Horacek, who allowed a two-out triple to Chris Jacobs with Jake Peter and Trey Michalczewski aboard. In the third, the visitors added to their lead thanks to a solo home run by Adam Engel.

Horacek walked three over five innings, but used the strikeout to his advantage. Punching out a career-high 11 batters, the former Dartmouth product struck out the side in each of his last three innings. He scattered five hits.

Making his first start in 613 days, Dash starter Jake Cose allowed one run on two hits over three innings to go along with four walks and a pair of strikeouts. Frederick plated its first run in the third on a fielder’s choice with runners at the corners. With Brenden Webb at bat, Trey Mancini got into a rundown between first and second, which allowed Tucker Nathans to scamper home from third. One inning later, Webb hit a solo home run to right off Andre Wheeler to pull the Keys within a run.

SALISBURY, Md. -- The Delmarva Shorebirds nearly completed another impressive comeback, rallying from 5-0 down to tie the game in the seventh. Asheville rebounded with a four-run eighth, winning Wednesday’s series opener by a final score of 9-5.

The Tourists dominated the action in the early innings. Ashevile scored twice off Shorebirds’ starter John Means in the second inning, an RBI grounder by Forrest Wall and a sacrifice fly by Randy Reyes. In the third, Asheville plated three runs, highlighted by a two-run home run by Wes Rogers. Two of the five runs that Means surrendered were unearned.

Delmarva started steadily chipping away at the Tourists’ advantage. In the fourth, Riley Palmer sliced a two-out double over the head of Omar Carrizales in left field. Palmer scored as he advanced to third on a wild pitch, and catcher Dom Nunez’s throw sailed into the outfield. In the sixth, Jamill Moquete laced an RBI single into center, trimming Asheville’s lead to 5-2.

In the seventh, the Shorebirds completed the comeback with a three-run frame. Elier Leyva ripped a leadoff double, his fourth double in the last three games. Jay Gonzalez bounced an RBI single up the middle, and promptly stole second base and advanced to third on an errant throw. Steve Wilkerson reached on an infield single as Gonzalez scored to cut the lead to one run. Wilkerson scored from second base on a bouncer to shortstop, as Emerson Jimenez threw low to allow the tying run across.

With the big comeback to knot the game, the tie did not last long for Delmarva. In the eighth, Drew Weeks reached on a misplayed ball at first base to spark the rally. After a sacrifice bunt, Zeke McGranahan issued two walks to load the bases. With two outs, Randy Reyes hit a deep drive to left that hit off the wall, scoring all three runners. Reyes later came home on a wild pitch for a 9-5 Asheville lead.

James Lomangino locked up the win for Asheville, retiring all six Shorebirds he faced. Logan Sawyer (3-1) took the win for the Tourists, while McGranahan (0-3) suffered the defeat for Delmarva, even though all four runs were unearned.

What's up with Tim Berry? Could it be disappointment of getting sent back to Bowie? With his stints in ST, AFL and last year in Bowie, I thought he was too polished to be getting hammered like this.

Disappointment? He'll be disappointed if he doesn;t start pitching better.
