Norfolk edged in extras Monday night

By Norfolk Tides | April 15, 2013 6:37 PM ET

Taylor Pastornicky singled home Sean Kazmar with two outs in the 11th inning to lift the Gwinnett Braves past the Tides 5-4 Monday night from Coolray Field. 

Kazmar led off the 11th inning with a single to center off Norfolk reliever Manny Delcarmen (1-1).  After a sacrifice bunt moved Kazmar to second, a ground out advanced Kazmar to third.  Jose Constanza then worked a walk off Delcarmen, and Pastornicky followed with a single to left to plate Kazmar and give the Braves the walkoff win.

The loss snapped Norfolk's three-game winning streak and dropped the Tides record to 6-6.

Danny Valencia homered to lead the Tides offense, while Russ Canzler added two hits and two runs batted in.  

The two clubs continue their four-game series Tuesday night from Coolray Field, with first pitch set for 6:05.
