Scott Moore homered twice and drove in four to power the Tides to a 9-4 win over the Charlotte Knights Sunday night at Harbor Park.

Moore belted two-run shots off of Lucas Harrell (10-10) in the third and fifth innings, helping Norfolk take the final two games of the three-game set. Since being sent to Norfolk from Baltimore on July 31, Moore has now hit .370 (20-for-54) with four home runs and 10 RBI.

Tides starter Chris Tillman (10-7) was the beneficiary of the offense as he became the first O's minor leaguer to register 10 wins this season. Tillman allowed three earned runs on eight hits in six-plus innings, walking one and striking out three.

With the victory, Tillman is now 6-1 with a 2.29 ERA (13-ER, 51.0-IP) in eight starts vs. Charlotte over the past two seasons.

Adam Donachie had three hits to help pace Norfolk's 11-hit attack, while Lou Montanez added a two-run single.

Stefan Gartrell and Brent Morel each had three hits for the Knights, who fell to 60-62 with the loss.

The Tides take to the road on Monday for a two-game set with the Gwinnett Braves. Tim Bascom (2-7, 7.46) takes the hill for Norfolk against right-hander Todd Redmond (9-10, 4.27), with first pitch scheduled for 7:05.
