Durham 155-8 v Yorkshire
The relentless accuracy of Steve Patterson undermined Durham as they struggled to 155 for eight at tea. It could have been worse had Jack Burnham, still there on 40, not been dropped on four by Alex Lees at first slip off Josh Shaw.
In a 14-over spell broken by lunch, Patterson recovered from conceding 18 in his first three overs to take four for 44.
Mark Stoneman was adjudged lbw when well forward without addition to his lunchtime 45 then a more confident shout was turned down before Paul Collingwood had scored.
The home captain looked anxious to get after Patterson, but after driving one four through the covers he went for a wider one and sliced it to backward point.
Excellent balls earned the next two wickets, Michael Richardson edging one which lifted and left him before Ryan Pringle groped forward and lost his off stump.
When Tim Bresnan replaced Patterson he also found extra bounce to have Usman Arshad caught behind.
Barry McCarthy helped Burnham to add 26 before being caught and bowled, via bat and pad, by Shaw.

Lancashire 82-3 v Warwickshire
Lancashire dug in to recover from a rocky start against Warwickshire when their Specsavers County Championship Division One tussle at Emirates Old Trafford got underway at 2pm.
After rain prevented play before lunch, the visitors exercised their right to bowl and removed both Lancashire openers in the first four overs.
But Luke Procter dug in to effect a recovery for the home side who went into tea on 82 for three, with Procter on 33 (97 balls).
Warwickshire struck two quick blows as Tom Smith edged Keith Barker's seventh ball to wicketkeeper Tim Ambrose and Haseeb Hameed fell lbw to Rikki Clarke's tenth, a yorker.
Procter and Alviro Petersen added 40 for the third wicket before the latter perished carelessly, lapping Jeetan Patel's second ball into the hands of Sam Hain at short leg. Procter was reprieved in the last over before tea when he edged Boyd Rankin but Varun Chopra grassed a waist-high chance at slip.
With Simon Kerrigan ruled out by a back injury, Lancashire are giving a first-class debut to 19-year-old leg-spinner Matt Parkinson on a pitch expected to turn.

Paul Edwards at Lancashire 82-3 v Warwickshire
Cricinfo understands that Lancashire will attempt to fill what they hope will be a short-term wicketkeeping vacancy by signing Nottinghamshire’s Tom Moores on loan. Moores, who is the son of the former Lancashire and England coach Peter Moores, is set to make his first team debut in Friday’s NatWest T20 Blast fixture against Worcestershire Rapids at Emirates Old Trafford. However, he made his second team debut for his new club in the current match against Durham IIs at Brandon but was dismissed for 15. With Alex Davies currently receiving treatment on a knee injury and Jos Buttler on one-day international duty with England, Lancashire’s Cricket Director, Ashley Giles, made the move for the highly-rated 19-year-old left-handed wicketkeeper-batsman who has represented England Under 19s and has made 36 appearances across all three formats for Nottinghamshire’s Second XI.
