Mark Stoneman won the toss and elected to bowl on an overcast morning in the capital, and his decision proved to be a good one as Chris Rushworth picked up the wicket of Will Porterfield in the fifth over.
The North East side bowled a tight line to restrict Varun Chopra's men in the early stages, and that forced the wicket of Jonathan Trott as he played across the line to a Paul Collingwood delivery and was out lbw for two.
Stoneman's side got off to a tricky start when Phil Mustard and Calum MacLeod were dismissed to leave them 12-2. However, the captain steadied the ship with a half-century to move them over the 50-run mark.
A clatter of wickets nearly caused a panic but a solid innings of 21 from Collingwood put Durham within sight of victory.
Stokes continued his fine day as scored 38 runs to all-but secure the win, but it was Breese who hit the winning runs with a cut for four to seal his side's victory in his last match for the club.
