Diamond Club Lose, 5-3, at Lowe's Field at Bojangles' Stadium
North Carolina left fielder Choppy Orozco was instrumental in his team's 5-3 win over the Virginia Diamond Club. Orozco went 2-3 with 2 runs scored to lead the offensive attack for the Aviators. North Carolina reliever José Estrada was credited with the win, to go to 1-0. Juan Menéndez took the loss for Virginia. Lou Moore earned his 1st save in 2 tries.

Had David Ruíz not delivered a key base hit in the bottom of the seventh, the outcome might have been different. Instead, with two down and runners on 2nd and 3rd, Ruíz hit a 2-run double. That made the score 5-3, in favor of the Aviators.

"We played hard and won," said Orozco. "Sometimes, baseball really is that easy.'

Every game is important, even these early ones, if the Aviators hope to make a postseason run.
