Marcus Wilson keys Red Sox in 3-1 Salem win

salem red soxMarcus Wilson blasted a two-run homer in the seventh to help the Red Sox over the Wilmington Blue Rocks 3-1 Wednesday night at Frawley Stadium.

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.
