Triple-A: Durham (Rays) Bulls 11, Norfolk Tides 0

Double-A: Bowie Baysox 9, Richmond (Giants) Flying Squirrels 4
A quick 3-0 deficit was nothing the Baysox couldn’t handle, as three runs in the second, one in the third and two in the fourth sent them on their way to another victory.
Doran Turchin and Robert Neustrom each clubbed their sixth home run of the season, while Johnny Rizer hit his third. Kyle Stowers had three hits, including a double, while Adley Rutschman had two hits, including a double, and scored twice. Neustrom and Turchin both drove in two runs.
Cody Sedlock delivered a solid start for Bowie, allowing three runs on six hits in five innings while fanning seven. Blaine Knight allowed one run in four innings of relief and earned the save while lowering his ERA to 2.12.

Trailing 4-2 going into the eighth, Aberdeen scored three times to take the lead, only to give it right back when Greenville scored two in the bottom half.
Gunnar Henderson had a big day for Aberdeen, going 3-for-4 with his first home run, a double, two runs and two RBI. Maverick Handley had the big hit, a two-run single, in the eighth inning rally for the IronBirds, and Adam Hall had two hits.
Before the bullpen struggled in the eighth, Kevin Magee (two innings, two hits, one run, four strikeouts) and Morgan McSweeney (two shutout innings, two strikeouts) pitched well for Aberdeen.
Low-A: Salem Red Sox 4, Delmarva Shorebirds 2
Salem jumped ahead 4-0, and Delmarva made it interesting with runs in the sixth and eighth but couldn’t close the gap further from there.
Leadoff hitter Mason Janvrin had a good day, rapping two hits including his sixth home run. Jean Carmona went 2-for-4 and raised his average to .321, and Lamar Sparks picked up his second double of the season.
Griffin McLarty (four innings, three runs) took the loss. Jake Lyons allowed only an unearned run in four innings of relief.
