NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – Despite first-inning home run, some nice defensive plays, and solid starting pitching, the Norfolk Tides gave up a 5-4 loss to the visiting Lehigh Valley Ironpigs on Memorial Day Monday.
Tides starting pitcher Syook Min Yoon, who’s been steadily improving since his rocky debut, played maybe the best game of his young Triple-A career, going seven innings, striking out six, and giving up three earned runs on just four hits. Tim Alderson gave up a 2-run home run in the eighth inning, and it ended up being a game-winner.
The Tides and Ironpigs will play again on Tuesday. The first pitch is scheduled for 5:05.
