Norfolk lost again, but DL Hall threw 3.2 innings, a season-high 64 pitches, and struck out seven. In four starts at Norfolk, he’s faced 57 batters and whiffed 23 of them, or 40.4%. Matt Vogel took the loss (1-1, 4.50 ERA) and Tim Naughton allowed a run himself before Cole Uvila and Nick Vespi closed out the game with a scoreless inning.
The Tides plated three of their four runs on solo home runs by Kyle Stowers (1-for-3, BB, .711 OPS), Kélvin Gutiérrez (1.107 OPS) and Beau Taylor. Norfolk produced a diversified offensive approach, with everyone but Greg Cullen and Adley Rutschman (sigh) reaching once or more.
