Garabez Rosa homered as part of a two-hit night, but Durham took advantage of a key defensive miscue to knock off the Tides 4-2 in 10 innings Thursday night at Harbor Park.

With the game knotted at 2-2 in the 10th, Durham?s Daniel Robertson ignited the game-winning rally with a one-out single off of Pedro Beato (0-1). Taylor Motter then grounded a potential inning-ending double play ball to third baseman Michael Almanzar, but Almanzar bobbled the ball before making a low throw that first baseman Joey Terdoslavich could not handle, putting runners at second and third. Richie Shaffer then lined a two-run double into the left field corner, giving the Bulls a 4-2 advantage.

Jhan Marinez (2-1) then shut the door on the Bulls victory with his second scoreless inning of relief, helping Durham take the opener of the three-game set.

Rosa, who was promoted to Norfolk from Double-A Bowie earlier Thursday, belted a 1-1 pitch leading off the third inning for his second career Triple-A homer to knot the score at 1-1. His first homer with the Tides came one season ago, when he homered in his first career Triple-A at-bat in an April 12 game at Charlotte.

Rosa also factored in Norfolk?s second run of the contest, as he singled in the fifth frame and eventually scored on a single by Ozzie Martinez.

Norfolk starter Terry Doyle turned in his first Quality Start of the season, as he held the Bulls to two runs on five hits over a season-high 6.1 innings of work. He departed the contest with a 2-1 lead and the bases loaded in the seventh frame, but Carlos Corporan lined an RBI single off of Edgar Olmos to knot the score and deny Doyle his first victory of the year. Doyle walked three and struck out four, throwing 53 of his 92 pitches for strikes.

Audry Perez had two hits and a walk in the contest, upping his average to .481 (13-27) in seven games this season. Xavier Avery added a single, walk and stolen base in the setback.

After the Baysox saw their four-game winning streak snapped, Bowie responded with a win in their first game of their seven-game homestand. Three Home Runs provided the offensive jolt needed to give Bowie the 6-4 win in their series opener versus Harrisburg.

Defense, once again, was an issue for the Baysox Thursday night as an error led to a first inning run for the Senators against Baysox starter RHP David Hess. INF Rafael Bautista hit a lead-off single to center field and stole second base before Wilmer Difo drew a walk. With one out, DH Neftali Soto reached on a fielding error that allowed Bautista to score and give Harrisburg an early 1-0 lead.

OF Mike Yastrzemski tied the game 1-1 in the bottom of the first inning with a solo home run to right field against Harrisburg starter RHP Reynaldo Lopez. Harrisburg would not be deterred and picked up another error-aided run in the top of the second inning. Zach Collier hit a lead-off single to right field and scored after a throwing error by 2B Corban Joseph as INF Stephen Perez reached via fielder's choice.

INF Chris Bostick gave the Senators a 3-1 lead with a solo home run of his own to left field in the top of the third inning. However, The Baysox tied the game 3-3 in the bottom of the third inning. OF Julio Borbon hit a lead-off single to right field and Yastrzemski followed up with his second home run of the night on a line drive to right field to tie the game. The home runs were the first two of the season for Yastrzemski and it marked the third multi-home run game of his career.

The game was not tied for long, the Senators took the lead right back in the top of the fourth inning. Perez hit a one-out single to left field and scored on an Adrian Sanchez double to left field to make the score 4-3 Senators.

Bowie took their first lead of the game in the bottom of the seventh frame against Harrisburg reliever LHP Nick Lee. Glynn Davis hit a lead-off single to left field but had to wait until a two-out home run from Trey Mancini drove him home to help the Baysox take a 5-4 lead.

For good measure, the Baysox added an insurance run in the bottom of the eighth inning against Harrisburg reliever RHP Wander Suero. Joseph hit a one-out single to left field and INF Jeff Kemp followed with a double down the left field line that scored Joseph and made the score 6-4.

Hess threw six innings and allowed four runs (two earned) on nine hits while striking out three and walking one in a no decision. Reliever RHP Stefan Crichton followed Hess with two perfect innings, striking out one to earn the win. Closer Jason Stoffel came into the game in the ninth and shut down the Senator hitters, recorded two strikeouts to end the game and earn him his third save.

Harrisburg reliever Lee was credited with the loss. He threw two innings, allowed two hits and two runs while striking out for Bowie batters

Keys right-hander Cory Jones was solid in his debut, however the offense was held to just two hits by a pair of Hillcats pitchers in a 5-0 loss at City Stadium Thursday night.

Jones (0-1) allowed single tallies in the first and second, but settled down soon after. The Californian, called up from Delmarva on Tuesday, lasted five innings and allowed two runs. He scattered six hits, walked one, and struck out six.

In the first, Yu-Cheng Chang doubled with one out. Two batters later, Bobby Bradley rapped a ball past first base for an RBI single for a 1-0 Hillcats advantage.

That would be all the ?Cats needed, though they added insurance in the second. Mark Mathias earned a walk with one away and was followed by a Daniel Salters single to place runners on the corners. Ivan Castillo grounded into a fielder?s choice for an RBI and two-run lead.

Anthony Caronia led off the third with a double to straightaway center field, but that was the only hit for the Keys until Caronia gathered an infield single in the ninth. Hillcats starter Sean Brady (1-1) was magnificent, becoming the first Hillcats pitcher to last seven innings. He gave up one hit, walked two, and punched out four.

Tanner Scott replaced Jones in the sixth. After he struck out Bradley, he walked Mike Papi. Taylor Murphy batted a ball to third, but Jomar Reyes aired a throw into right field to put two in scoring position. Salters then came through with a two-run single up the middle. Scott gave up another run in the seventh, but two Frederick errors in that inning made all three runs against the lefty unearned.

Cole Sulser finished the final two innings for the Hillcats, while Tanner Chleborad pitched 1 1/3 scoreless innings for the Keys.

Yermin Mercedes clobbered three doubles for the Shorebirds in a 9-3 loss at Kannapolis to open the four game weekend series in North Carolina. Alex Murphy also extended his hitting streak to five games and he has officially reached base safely in each of the first 15 games of the season.

Delmarva (7-8) got things rolling in the top half of the first inning. After a lead-off walk and stolen base from Ademar Rifaela, Murphy slapped a ground ball through the middle of the infield to plate an early run, his league-leading 14th RBI of the season. Mercedes clubbed a double to the left field corner in the next at bat, but a perfect relay from Landon Lassiter to Grant Massey to Sean O?Connell got Murphy out at the plate trying to score from first base and ended the Delmarva threat.

Steve Laurino ripped his second double of the year to center field with one out in the second inning, and Drew Turbin plated his second run this season with a sharp single through the middle of the infield. Delmarva led 2-0 but Kannapolis quickly got things rolling on offense. Sean O?Connell cut the lead in half on a sacrifice fly in his first at bat of the season for Kannapolis in the bottom of the second.

The Intimidators (6-9) took the lead in the home half of the third when Lassiter knocked a two run double into the right field corner. Once Kannapolis took the edge, they never gave in.

The Intimidators scored three runs in the bottom of the sixth inning. Lassiter drove home his third run of the night on a single to left field to make it a 4-2 contest. With Corey Zangari batting, reliever Elias Pinales threw a wild pitch that allowed Tyler Sullivan to score from third. As Alex Murphy tracked down the ball behind home plate, he picked it up and threw it back to Pinales covering the dish. But Pinales didn?t catch the ball. It clanked off the side of his head and ricocheted hard to the right, rolling all the way into the first base dugout. Lassiter had already gotten to third base when the ball went out of play, and he was awarded home plate. Kannapolis led 6-2 and Pinales had to leave the game.

Delmarva scored in the top of the eighth when Yermin Mercedes plugged his third double of the night, this one to right-center field, and Gerrion Grim doubled him home two batters later. The ?Birds trailed 6-3 going into the home half of the eighth inning.

Bobby Strader got into trouble in the eighth when he walked three batters to load the bases for Zangari, who doubled home two runs on a shot to the left field corner. Cody Daily lifted a sacrifice fly to left one batter later, and Kannapolis closed the scoring by blanking the Shorebirds in the ninth. Delmarva stranded nine runners, including seven in scoring position.

Orioles.com had this tidbit today:

Orioles Nos. 5 and 22 prospects Trey Mancini and Mike Yastrzemski combined to go 5-for-8 with three home runs and five RBIs as Double-A Bowie edged Harrisburg, 6-4. Mancini, the 2015 Eastern League MVP, hit his sixth home run of the season -- a go-ahead, two-run shot in the bottom of the seventh inning -- and 3-for-4 at the plate, while Yastrzemski entered the home run column with long balls in his first two at-bats, both against Nationals' No. 5 prospect Reynaldo Lopez.

Nice seeing Yaz hit for power.

    • This would likely be their best investment.  Pay for great management that can find cheaper talent. 
    • There are a few problems. One, Scott has regressed big time. He can't make shots at all. Young has a bit too, although he had a big game against Penn State. Those two need to score a lot if this team wants to do anything.  The team has zero depth. None of the freshmen have looked that good. Kaiser finally made some big shots tonight, but has struggled mightily. Same thing with Harris-Smith, he has struggled big time. We are counting on those two being impact players right away, and it doesn't look like they are. Lamothe doesn't get any playing time. There is no one off the bench that is good. Batchelor sort of sucks. Losing Martinez and Hart hurt a lot, they both brought energy and scoring. Long brings a little, but his game is limited. The good news is the season is still young. The losses against Davidson and UAB were bad without a doubt. Aside from that they don't have any bad losses. If they had lost against Penn State at home, which they almost did, that would have been trouble.  Julian Reese looks to have improved a lot, I will say that. He is not good at the free throw line, but he is a monster rebounder and can score around the hoop. Finally, 3 point shooting- they suck. Like really bad. Willard needs to recruit some shooters badly. If the freshmen improve and Scott finds his game, this team will get better. But I don't have any large hopes for this year. If they make the tournament as an 8-10 that would be a small miracle. 
    • Let us have our fun and hope for the worst possible outcome.   Soto was DRS  -4 and OAA -9 playing LF last year.  We can only hope it gets even worse in NY.   Surprisingly, his 35 homers show an expected home run total of only 27 if playing all games in Yankee Stadium.   In old Yankee stadium they used to call LCF Death Valley.  I guess it’s still kind of big out there.   Good luck in NY, Juan.  NOT!
    • It's still a great trade and the Yankees have deep enough pockets to replenish their pitching with FAs. It doesn't reak of desperation at all to me. Literally every team should have been calling the Padres about Soto when they put him on the market because players "that good" are rarely ever available. 
    • Back the truck up for Elias and Sig.
