The Triple-A Norfolk Tides couldn't recover from a six-run deficit after the first inning in their loss to the Durham Bulls, but the Double-A Bowie Baysox earned their best start in team history by beating the Akron Aeros.
The Single-A Frederick Keys were edged by the Lynchburg Hillcats at Harry Grove Stadium, and the Single-A Delmarva Shorebirds lost their home opener to the Hagerstown Suns at Arthur W. Perdue Stadium.
Before today's game, the Keys added outfielder Jacob Julius and infielder Michael Mooney to their roster. Julius hasn't played yet this season, and Mooney was 3-for-16 (.188) in four games for the Shorebirds before heading to Frederick.
In order to make room for the two players, the Keys placed Greg Miclat on the disabled list with a broken nose. Jason White was added to the temporary inactive list for personal reasons.
