Adley Rutschman was 2-for-4 in his first game with Triple-A Norfolk as the Tides defeated Memphis, 4-0, on Tuesday night.
Rutschman, the overall No. 1 pick in the 2019 draft, grounded out to second and flied to right in his first two at-bats before a run-scoring single in the sixth and a double in the eighth.
Rutschman, who was promoted from Double-A Bowie on Sunday night, scored Norfolk’s fourth run on second baseman Jahmai Jones’ single.
Bruce Zimmermann, who was making his third rehab start, threw five hitless innings, walking two and striking out one.
Kyle Bradish pitched three innings, allowing a single with two outs in the eighth to Alec Burleson.
Felix Bautista pitched a scoreless ninth, but he allowed a walk and hit a batter.
