Norfolk 5, Buffalo 2
"Dariel Alvarez doubled three times and drove in two, powering Norfolk to a 5-2 win over the Buffalo Bisons Friday night at Harbor Park. Alvarez doubled and scored in the second inning, hit a sacrifice fly in the third frame, then added doubles in the fifth and eighth innings to help Norfolk snap a seven-game skid. Alvarez, who now ranks third in the IL with 10 doubles this season, has batted .340 (16-47) with five doubles and 11 RBI through 12 games in May."
Bowie 7, Erie 8
"A dramatic Baysox rally was enough to send Friday night's game to extra innings but Erie got the last laugh. John Hicks hit a solo home run to left to end it on the first pitch of the bottom of the tenth inning as the Baysox fell by a final of 8-7. Bowie got great work from the relieving tandem of Jon Keller and Genison Reyes to stay in the game. Down 6-0 through two innings, the duo each worked three innings to keep the Baysox in the game. Bowie's bats would get hot late against the Erie pen."
Frederick 3, Myrtle Beach 8
"The Myrtle Beach Pelicans hit a season-high three home runs to defeat the Frederick Keys 8-3 on Friday night at Nymeo Field. With the loss, the Keys saw their three-game winning streak come to a close."
Delmarva 5, Greensboro 4 (F/6)
"Some things can't be explained. Alex Murphy's two-run homer in the bottom of the sixth inning lifted the Shorebirds to a 5-4 win in improbable fashion on Friday, May 13 when a thick, dense fog settled across the outfield at Arthur W. Perdue Stadium. The game was called after a 35-minute delay with two outs in the home half of the sixth inning. A mounting fog interfered with Stone Garrett's ability to see Gerrion Grim's two out double to left field in the sixth, igniting a discussion between Grasshoppers' manager Kevin Randel and umpires Justin Anderson and Mike Carroll. Garrett's body language clearly showed he was perturbed when Grim's double sailed over his head in left field. Just over a half hour later, Grim's double proved to be the last play in the game."
