The Tides, the Baltimore Orioles Triple-A affiliate, lost a 1-0 game to the Durham Bulls in 10 innings Tuesday. Rochester, meanwhile, beat Scranton/Wilkes-Barre 13-3 to win the Wild Card.

The Pawtucket Red Sox had already clinched the International League's North Division.

Scott Diamond pitched 7 innings of three-run ball, and the Red Wings hung nine runs on the board in the first inning Monday.
