SALEM, Va. – The Salem Red Sox were clinging on to a slim 2-1 lead in the ninth inning when their pitching came apart just a bit. They were faced with a bases loaded, two men out situation when the tying run was walked home.
Down East then scored four runs in the top of the tenth for the 6-2 victory. Saturday's game was aired on WSLS.
With the Salem loss and a Lynchburg Hillcats victory, the two teams are now tied atop the Carolina League Northern Division.
