On Monday the Sox took their second extra-innings win in a week, topping the Wilmington Blue Rocks, 3-2, in 12 innings at Frawley Stadium in Wilmington. The Sox bounced back from a complete-game shutout Sunday night to take the win and a series split.
Sox starting pitcher Dedgar Jimenez gave up two runs on eight hits and a walk in his seven innings, fanning two and taking a no-decision. Trevor Kelley surrendered a hit and two walks in two innings but struck out two and didn’t allow a run. Austin Glorius (W, 4-2) fanned one in two scoreless innings, allowing a hit and two walks and earning the win as Salem improved to 7-5 in the second half.
With the win Salem remained two games behind Lynchburg in the Northern Division standings. The Sox opened a three-game series with Carolina on Tuesday, and this weekend they play three at Lynchburg before returning home Monday for a fourth game against the Hillcats.
