Charlotte – 10
Pawtucket – 5
WP: Castro (2-6)
LP: Webster (5-1)
S: Moskos (1)
HR: CHA-McDade (4), Tolleson (5), Phegley (12); PAW-Victorino (1), Middlebrooks (2), Butler (3)
HIGHLIGHTS: Balls were flying out of McCoy Stadium at an alarming rate on Thursday with each team leaving the park three times. A five-run second inning had the Knights up early and they insured their lead with four more in the fifth. … Rehabbing Shane Victorino led off the bottom of the first with a home run on an 0-1 count. Will Middlebrooks, also on rehab assignment, belted his second home run in as many games. … Allen Webster’s night was cut short after only 3 1/3 innings. He picked up his first loss with the PawSox after allowing five earned runs on four hits and a walk. He allowed two home runs for the first time all season and has given up four long balls in his last three starts. In 130 2/3 innings last season he allowed just two home runs.

Winston-Salem – 5
Salem – 4
WP: Erben (2-0)
LP: Ramirez (2-1)
S: Winiarski (7)
HR: WS- Farrell (9); SAL-Jacobs (6), Ramos (5)
HIGHLIGHTS: Despite only allowing six hits on the night, the Salem Sox (26-32) could not get enough of their offense generated to overcome the Dash. … Center fielder Henry Ramos went 3-for-4 and hit his second home run in as many games. He also added an RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base on the night. … Left fielder Keury De La Cruz (2-for-4, double, 2 RBIs) has hit safely in five straight games, collecting two hits four times. In this span he is 9-for-18 (.500) with nine RBIs and three runs.

HIGHLIGHTS: The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader, in Portland, on July 11th as Thursday marked the last time that the Sea Dogs would be in Erie for the season.

Charleston POSTPONED
HIGHLIGHTS: Last night’s wash out also took with it the completion of Wednesday’s suspended game which is now set to be finished on Monday in Greenville. The makeup date for Thursday’s postponed game has yet to be determined.
