Norfolk Tides 0, Syracuse Chiefs 3
The Tides actually outhit the Chiefs six hits to three, but the Tides couldn't score any runs against Aaron Laffey. RF Francisco Peguero and 2B Alexi Casilla each had two hits, with Peguero hitting a double, while CF Julio Borbon and SS Jemile Weeks each singled, but that was all the offense the Tides could muster.
