Norfolk Tides 5, Gwinett Braves 3

Bowie Baysox 0, Trenton Thunder 9

Frederick Keys 1, Wilmington Blue Rocks 8
In his first start back with Frederick after a trip to the DL, Matt Taylor pitched 3 1/3 innings with seven hits and three runs allowed. His relief wasn't much better, with Brady Wager giving up three runs and Miguel Chalas giving up two.

Delmarva Shorebirds 1, Lakewood BlueClaws 11 (Game 2)
Starting pitcher Dariel Delgado pitched three great innings letting two runners on base with two outs in the fourth. He looked like he got himself out of the jam, but a 3B Drew Dosch botched the ground ball to load the bases. The next batter up hit a grand slam for four unearned runs.
