Clams Rally to Beat the Pilots

Clams Rally to Beat the Pilots

For the second consecutive night, the Edenton Steamers rallied from behind to defeat the Peninsula Pilots.

The Clams scored two runs in the seventh and eighth to defeat the Pilots 6-4 from War Memorial Stadium.

The Pilots got out to an early 3-0 lead, plating two in the first and one in the second.

Jack Eisenbarger got the start for Edenton and tossed 2.1 innings allowing three earned runs.

Edenton was held off the board for the first three frames. Ian Walters hit an RBI double in the fourth to cut the deficit, 3-1.

In the top of the seventh, Rob Weissheier and Kenny Oyama came home on an RBI double off the bat of Mason Holt, tying the game at 4.

Justin Drpich and Colin Adams delivered back-to-back RBI singles in the 8th to give Edenton their first lead of the night.

In the bottom of the ninth, Payton Rice was called on with two runners on and one out. Rice was able to escape a bases loaded jam and record his first save of the season.

Kross Robinson turned in his best performance to date. The NC native delivered 4.2 innings allowing just one earned run, striking out six and earning his first win for the Teal and Black.

Alex Alders lead the offensive charge, going 3-for-5 with a homerun. Colin Adams went 2-for-4 with an RBI.

Kenny Oyama extended his hit streak to six games.

Edenton improves to 17-15 overall and 4-2 in the second half. On the year, the Clams have an 8-3 record against the Pilots. The two teams will see each other five more time this season.
