Despite another big night by Oscar Salazar, the Triple-A Norfolk Tides lost to the Buffalo Bisons.

The Double-A Bowie Baysox beat the first-place Akron Aeros, while the Single-A Delmarva Shorebirds were handed a one-run loss by the Greensboro Grasshoppers.


The game between the Single-A Frederick Keys and Myrtle Beach Pelicans was postponed until tomorrow due to inclement weather.
