MOREHEAD CITY, N.C. — For only the 2nd time all summer, the Wilmington Sharks come out in front against the Morehead City Marlins, topping the Fish 4-1 at Big Rock Stadium on Monday night.
Noah Takac (Davidson) put together his best start of the night for the Sharks, throwing six innings of one-run ball. Takac allowed only two hits, one walk and struck out six. Takac earned his 1st win, improving to 1-2 on the summer.
Following Takac, Troy Britts (Liberty) threw two scoreless frames to hold on to the Sharks lead, and Alex Havlicek (Virginia Tech) tossed a scoreless 9th to earn his 6th save.
The only Marlins run of the night came in the 4th inning, when Jack Harris (San Francisco State) scored on a throwing error.
The game marked the first time in the 2nd half that the Marlins have been held to less than two runs, and only the 2nd time all year.
The loss snapped a seven-game winning streak for the Marlins, and marked their first loss at home in over two weeks. It was just the 6th home loss all season for the Marlins in 25 games at Big Rock Stadium.
The Marlins are back in action tomorrow, making the trip to Hampton, Virginia to take on the Peninsula Pilots.
