Marlins Hook TobsJuly 2, 2012 - Coastal Plain League (Coastal Plain) Wilson Tobs
Morehead City (1-1, 11-18) led by a pair of runs as they came to bat in the third inning against Tobs right-hander Demetrus Ingram (L, 0-1). The Marlins were able to get the first two runners on base before Sal Annunziata launched a three-run home run over the wall in the left field for a five-run lead.
Wilson (1-1, 10-20) answered back in their half of the third scoring two runs on a bunt single by Zack Lee but the throw from Matt Anderson went down the right field line allowing Aaron Rea and Collins Cuthrell to score and make it 5-2.
That would be as close as the Tobs would be as the Marlins plated two more runs in the fourth before adding another run in the sixth to go up 8-2.
Wilson plated a pair of runs in the ninth inning on back-to-back doubles from Zach Houchins and Joe Costigan for the final 8-4 margin.
The Tobs hit the road on Tuesday night as they travel to Buck Hardee Field to battle the Wilmington Sharks. Wilson will return to Fleming Stadium on Wednesday night at 7:05 to take on the Edenton Steamers.
