The Charleston RiverDogs fended off a late push from Adam Hall and his Delmarva Shorebirds teammates as they prevailed 7-5 at Arthur W. Perdue Stadium.
Down 5 – 1 Delmarva made serious inroads into Charleston's lead in the seventh. With two outs, Cody Roberts legged out an infield single to start the inning. Back-to-back walks to Nick Horvath and Jean Carlos Encarnacion loaded the bases. A third straight walk to Watson then forced home a run, bringing the Shorebirds to within three runs at 5-2. Hall made it a 5-4 game as he roped a two-run single. A pitching change brought Keagan Curtis in for the RiverDogs, and after Hall stole second, Curtis punched out Johnny Rizer to strand two in scoring position and end the frame.
Hall picked up his 36th overall and second straight multi-hit game for Delmarva. Hall went 2-for-5 with 2 RBI’s.
