NORFOLK | Yunesky Maya was brilliant.

Showing what he is capable of after a rough April, Maya went 7.2 innings, scattered six hits, walked one, and struck out nine as the Syracuse Chiefs topped the Durham Bulls on Monday.

It was Maya’s first win of the season and he dropped his ERA by about a run and a half to 5.89.

Zach Walters hit his seventh home run of the season which was a three-run blast in the top of the second (he is hitting .236 with all of the power).

Both of the Chiefs runs in the top of the third were unearned.

Audio Highlights: From @ChiefsRadio

Record: 11-19, Box Score

Nationals Headline of the Day: Nats are playing the...Tigers...really, the Tigers?

Next Game: May 7 at Durham, 7:05 p.m.

Line of the Day: Zach Walters, 1-for-4, HR, 3 RBI, R

See above

The Inning: Syracuse Top of the 2nd

  • Chris Marrero walks.
  • Micah Owings singles on a line drive to right fielder Wil Myers. Chris Marrero to 2nd.
  • Zach Walters homers (7) on a fly ball to right field. Chris Marrero scores. Micah Owings scores.
  • Carlos Rivero grounds out, third baseman Mike Fontenot to first baseman Leslie Anderson.
  • Jhonatan Solano grounds out, pitcher Jim Paduch to first baseman Leslie Anderson.
  • Erik Komatsu called out on strikes.

Perez-watch: 2-for-4, 2B, R

Perez is hitting .333 on the season and led off the top of the third with a double before he scored on a Jeff Kobernus single.

If those top two guys get hot again that is going to turn into a lot of runs.

Brown-watch: On Disabled List with oblique injury

Could be back when Chiefs come back home on May 10.
