The BlueClaws got on the board in the second inning when Zach Arnold walked with the bases loaded. He brought in Leandro Pineda, who had singled on the first pitch of the inning to extend his hitting streak to 12 games.

Wilmington then tied the game in the top of the third inning on a SAC fly from Kevin Made.

Jersey Shore scored three times in the sixth to take the lead. Felix Reyes’ RBI single made it 2-1 before the BlueClaws added SAC flies from both Andrick Nava and Zach Arnold.

Jack Dallas threw two scoreless innings and Daniel Harper got the last three outs for his fourth save of the year.

Erick Brito, Pineda, and Cade Fergus had two hits for the BlueClaws.

The BlueClaws and Blue Rocks finish their series on Sunday at 1:05 pm. RHP Starlyn Castillo starts for Jersey Shore.
