The seven runs were more than enough for Tides starter Dana Eveland (1-0), who worked six strong innings, allowing two runs (one earned) while yielding six hits. Eveland struck out three without issuing a walk, throwing 53 of his 79 pitches for strikes.
Jamie Hoffmann led Norfolk's 12-hit attack with three singles, while Adams, Joe Mahoney and Steve Tolleson each added two hits apiece.
