Behind a pair of big hits from Zach Watson and Edison Lantigua, Adam Hall and his Delmarva Shorebirds teammates woke up late to salvage the finale over the Charleston RiverDogs, winning 4-1 at Joe Riley Park.
Down 1-0 in the top of the eighth, Jean Carlos Encarnacion worked a one-out walk. He then stole second base and advanced to third on a bad throw from catcher Mickey Gasper, Charleston's fourth of five errors on the night. Johnny Rizer followed with another walk to bring up Watson, who clobbered a 2-1 pitch from closer Carlos Espinal off the wall in left field for a double. Encarnacion and Rizer both scored, putting the Shorebirds in front 2-1.
The trouble didn't stop there for the RiverDogs. Espinal hit Ryne Ogren on the very next pitch, and Seamus Curran drew a full count walk to load the bases. Lantigua came up next and muscled a low liner through the right side for a two-run base hit, scoring Watson and Ogren to make it 4-1 Delmarva.
