Wilmington, NC- The Morehead City Marlins extended their winning streak to eight games with a 4-2 defeat of the Wilmington Sharks.

In the top of the first the Marlins got their first run of the ballgame thanks to two errors made by the Sharks infield.

Wilmington countered with a run of their own in the bottom of the first to even the game at one.

Braeden O’Shaugnessy came around to score on a wild pitch and Ben Miller plated Shayne Campbell with a run-scoring single in the top of the fourth to give Morehead City a 3-1 lead.

A Dylan Rogers double to left center field in the top of the fifth pushed the margin to 4-1 and the Marlins bullpen would handle the rest only surrendering one run the rest of the way.

The Marlins and Sharks will meet again tomorrow night from Big Rock Stadium at 7:00.
