Maile delivers key hit in Durham’s winning rally

Luke Maile capped a three-run eighth inning Wednesday night with a go-ahead two-run single as the Durham Bulls rallied for a 4-3 International League victory over Norfolk at Durham Bulls Athletic Park.

Trailing 3-1 entering the bottom of the eighth, Durham (57-61) loaded the bases with two outs on a walk to Joey Rickard, an error on a Jake Elmore grounder and a walk to Ryan Brett. Pinch-hitter Taylor Motter drew a bases-loaded walk to get the Bulls within a run, before Maile singled to center to put Durham ahead 4-3.

The Tides put runners on first and second in the ninth, but they could do no more as the Bulls snapped a two-game losing skid.

The series will wrap up with a 7:05 p.m. game Thursday. Right-hander Matt Andriese (3-2, 2.25 ERA) is scheduled to start for Durham against Terry Doyle (1-1, 4.05) for Norfolk.
