Gwinnett (Braves) 5, Norfolk Tides 4 (10 innings)
The Tides scored three runs to overcome a 3-0 deficit and eventually send the game into extra innings. They got a run in the top of the tenth thanks to a pair of errors by Gwinnett fielders, with Paul Janish driving in the run on a sacrifice fly. However, in the bottom half of the inning, Chaz Roe gave up two runs to send the Tides packing in a walkoff loss. Norfolk had ten hits but only one was for extra bases.
Eddie Gamboa, fresh off his uneventful big league stint, started the game for the Tides, giving up three runs on five hits and three walks in five innings. He also struck out four. Oliver Drake pitched a couple of scoreless innings in relief, striking out three batters.
Bowie Baysox 2, Harrisburg (Nationals) 1
These two sides played a very low-offense affair on Monday, with only eight hits combined between the two teams in the whole game. Each team had four hits. Bowie scored its pair of runs courtesy of a home run by newly-acquired catcher Chris O'Brien.
On the pitching side of the ledger, Dylan Bundy made his first start of the year. He was limited to three innings, as was part of the plan. In that time he gave up no hits or walks and struck out one batter. Bundy was relieved by Matt Hobgood, who added three scoreless innings of his own in which he gave up two hits and a walk while striking out two.
Frederick Keys 5, Lynchburg (Indians) 4 (16 innings)
The Keys and the Hillcats played a game long into the night. Players on both teams were stealing bases like it was going out of style. Frederick stole four bases, including two steals for Josh Hart, while Lynchburg swiped five bags against catcher Austin Wynns.
Frederick had a three-run first headlined by a two-run triple hit by Trey Mancini. Lynchburg countered with a three-run fourth that chased Keys starter Sebastian Vader from the game. Each team scored a run in the twelfth to prolong the contest. Brenden Webb, who began the game as a right fielder, ended up pitching three innings for Frederick, allowing a run on four hits. In the sixteenth, Drew Dosch walked it off with a bases loaded sacrifice fly.
Delmarva Shorebirds 5, Kannapolis (White Sox) 3
Kannapolis chased Shorebirds starter Bennett Parry from the game in the top of the sixth with a three run inning, but Delmarva came right back and got four runs in the bottom of the same inning. Though the Shorebirds had only six hits, they also took seven walks, including two in their four-run sixth. Alex Murphy did the most damage with a two-run single.
Earlier in the game, Jomar Reyes had an RBI double for Delmarva. Reyes, who's just 18 years old, has a .955 OPS through the first five games of the South Atlantic League season.
