NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – Despite a solid outing from starting pitcher Eddie Gamboa, the Norfolk Tides were shut out 3-0 in their season opener against the visiting Charlotte Knights at Harbor Park.

Gamboa pitched five innings and gave up only four hits, but one of those happened to be a two-run homer by Knights third-baseman Jared Mitchell in the top of the fifth inning.

The Tides only managed five hits all knights, and three times through the first seven innings, hit into inning-ending double plays with runners in scoring position. Norfolk and Charlotte square off again on Friday night, with first pitch scheduled for 7:05 pm.
