Triple-A: Charlotte Knights (White Sox) 11, Norfolk Tides 7

The Tides fought back from a 5-0 first-inning deficit to make it interesting, closing within a run on two separate occasions, but couldn’t completely escape the early hole.

Rylan Bannon swatted his 13th home run as part of a 2-for-5 day, while Pat Valaika (three runs) and Robert Neustrom (two runs, two RBI) each had three hits. Neustrom’s three hits were all doubles, while Brett Cumberland had a double and Adley Rutschman went 1-for-4 with a walk.

Seven pitchers tried their luck for the Tides as Norfolk tried to escape a bad start from Kyle Bradish, who was charged with five runs in only two thirds of an inning.

Double-A: Bowie Baysox 11, Reading Fightin Phils 8, 11 inn.

After hitting a go-ahead home run in the 10th, Bowie finally got the winning runs in the 11th inning Sunday with a fielder’s choice and two hit by pitches to take down Reading.

One of the batters getting plunked was Andrew Daschbach, who went deep to put Bowie ahead in the 10th before a Bryson Stott sacrifice fly evened things up again. Cadyn Grenier and Johnny Rizer (triple) had three hits apiece during the see-saw game, while Toby Welk hit a home run, scored two and drove in two. Patrick Dorrian doubled and had three RBI.

Jordan Westburg, the team’s No. 6 prospect, went 1-for-6 with a run.

Grayson Rodriguez had the rare unimpressive start, allowing five runs on six hits in 3.2 innings. He did strike out seven.

High-A: Wilmington Blue Rocks (Nationals) at Aberdeen IronBirds, PPD

This game was postponed due to rain, with no makeup date announced.

Low-A: Delmarva Shorebirds 10, Fredericksburg Nationals 2

Five runs in the third inning made for an easy night for the Shorebirds on Sunday.

Delmarva went deep three times, with No. 9 prospect Connor Norby (three runs, two RBI), Coby Mayo (two hits, three RBI) and Mason Janvrin (two RBI) slugging those shots. Ryne Ogren went 1-for-4 with a double.

The win went to Houston Roth, who pitched four innings in relief of starter Ty Blach (one inning, two strikeouts) and allowed one unearned run on four hits.
