Heston Kjerstad hit a 12th-inning grand slam to give Triple-A Norfolk a 5-3 win over Lehigh Valley on Sunday. The Ironpigs scored two runs in the top of the 12th off Nick Vespi (2-1). With two outs, Kjerstad, who was sent from the Orioles to the Tides on Monday, hit his 12th homer for the win. The game was scoreless through 10 innings.

Centerfielder Elio Prado had three hits as High-A Aberdeen defeated Wilmington, 5-2. Leftfielder Douglas Hodo hit his first home run. Starting pitcher Edgar Portes (2-0) threw five hitless innings, striking out six.

Catcher Aneudis Mordán homered in Single-A Delmarva’s 2-1 win over Lynchburg.
