PAWTUCKET – A long night at McCoy Stadium resulted in a sour ending for the Pawtucket Red Sox.

Jonathan Schoop’s two-run home run in the top of the 15th inning helped snap a 2-all deadlock and propel visiting Norfolk to a 5-2 win at McCoy Stadium. Schoop drove in three of the four runs the Tides scores in extra innings after coming through with a run-scoring base hit in the 13th.

The win allows Norfolk to close to within a game of Pawtucket in the wild-card standings. The Tides took six of the eight matchups with the PawSox this season.
