Tides double up Scranton

By Norfolk Tides | May 1, 2009 7:38 PM ET

Scott Moore homered twice and drove in six to lead the Tides to a 14-7 win over the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees Friday night.

Moore slugged a three-run homer in the fourth inning and a two-run blast in the ninth, giving him five long balls on the season. The six RBI were the most for a Tides player in a game this season.

Nolan Reimold continued his torrid start to the season with a three-run homer in the first off of Jason Stephens (0-1), and Oscar Salazar added a solo shot in the sixth inning to up his hitting streak to 17 games.

Chris Tillman was the beneficiary of the offense, as he improved to 2-0 on the season after allowing three runs on four hits while striking out six in five innings of work.

The Tides and Yankees square off again Saturday at 1:05, with David Pauley (1-2, 3.00) slated to take the hill for Norfolk.
