Buffalo, NY -- Chris Jones allowed one run over five innings and Norfolk pounded out 13 hits in a 4-2 win at Buffalo Thursday afternoon. 

Jones (7-8) took over the team lead in wins and lowered his ERA to 3.84 with five strong innings. He allowed five hits and three walks while striking out four as he helped Norfolk salvage a split of the four-game set with the Bisons. 

Alexi Casilla - activated from the disabled list Wednesday - had three hits and a run scored to help lead the offense, while Julio Borbon and Jimmy Paredes each added two hits and an RBI. 

Preston Guilmet allowed one hit and struck out one during a scoreless ninth inning to register his 10th save of the season. 

With the win, Norfolk wrapped up its eight-game road trip with a 3-5 record. The Tides return home Friday night to start a three-game series with the Gwinnett Braves, with first pitch slated for 7:05. Mike Wright (3-11, 5.48) takes the hill for Norfolk against right-hander Terry Doyle (2-2, 2.76).
