Norfolk Tides 0, Charlotte Knights 4
While one wouldn't call Suk-Min Yoon's outing "good," it was a vast improvement over his debut. Today, Yoon lasted 4.1 innings over last week's 2.1, allowed three earned runs against last week's nine and struck out four where last week he struck out none. Work in progress. Brock Huntzinger built on his nice Spring with his second straight scoreless outing.
As indicated by the final score, the offense was nearly non-existent today (0-1 RISP). Cord Phelps had a pair of hits and not much else happened.

Bermudez has been on base in all seven games he's played including a single and a homer in today's game. Garabez Rosa hit his second homer, but don't get too excited: his career high is seven. Christian Walker was 1-5 and Michael Ohlman was 0-4 with two strikeouts.
In his 45th start for Bowie at age 27, Jake Pettit allowed four earned runs, ten baserunners and a homer in six innings and yet he still was credited with the win. Oliver Drake picked up his second save of the season.
