Adley Rutschman blasted a solo home run in the seventh inning to provide fans one more reason to get excited for his arrival. Kyle Stowers plated the only other Norfolk run with a single in the third inning. Yusniel Diaz added a hit and two walks, and Ryan McKenna finished 1-for-5 from the leadoff spot. Kelvin Gutierrez tallied a hit and a walk in four plate appearances.
If the star-studded paragraph above was not enough, boy do I have good news for you. Grayson Rodriguez was up to his usual tricks over five innings of one-run ball. Rodriguez struck out eight and allowed only three hits.
