Salem Red Sox run to 5-4 win at Myrtle Beach

salem red soxSalem trailed 3-0 late, but the offense came alive in the eighth, and the Red Sox went on to a 5-4 win at Myrtle Beach Saturday night.

Edgar Corcino lined a deep single to center with two outs in the eighth, scoring Ryan Fitzgerald, and when Pelicans catcher Miguel Amaya attempted to throw to third base to tag Victor Acosta, the ball flew into left field, allowing both Acosta and Corcino scored to draw the Sox even, 3-3.

Tyler Durna reclaimed the lead for Myrtle Beach in the bottom of the frame with an RBI single to advance 4-3 over Salem.

Patience at the plate and aggression on the base path paid off again for the Red Sox in the ninth inning. Dylan Hardy started the frame with a walk, Nick Lovullo reached on an error to push runners to the corners. Again with two outs, Fitzgerald delivered a two-run double for Salem’s first lead, 5-4.

Andrew Schwaab shut the door on Myrtle Beach, striking out three and leaving two stranded to secure the win and his eighth save.
