Marcus Wilson keys Red Sox in 3-1 Salem win
Keith Curcio punctuated the first pitch of the tilt with a double and scored after a sacrifice fly from Ryan Fitzgerald to give the Sox a 1-0 lead.
From there, Daniel Gonzalez (4-6) squared up with Jonathan Bowlan until the seventh inning, when Fitzgerald reached on a lead-off single, and Wilson tattooed a ball to left field to pull ahead 3-0.
Wilmington’s lone run came on an RBI single in the bottom of the frame to cut the lead 3-1.
Gonzalez finished after 6 1/3 innings in which only one run crossed through four hits and four strikeouts.
Zach Schellenger delivered 2 1/3 innings of scoreless relief, permitting two hits and striking out three. Andrew Schwaab secured the final out of the contest.
