MOREHEAD CITY, N.C. – It was a quick two and a half hour contest at The Rock on Wednesday night, but the Marlins found themselves on the losing end. 

Three runs scored by the Steamers in the top of the first inning gave Edenton a 3-1 win over Morehead City on Wednesday night. 

Hunter Cole opened the scoring, ripping a 2-run home run to right field. Cole’s blast was followed by a solo home run from Aaron Copeland on the very next pitch. Morehead City would answer in the bottom of the second, thanks to Tyler Clark-Chiapparelli (Washburn) scoring on the game’s only error.

Despite the bats being cold for the Marlins, Gibson Krzeminski (Canisius) was a bright spot at the plate. The Tecumseh, Ontario native went 3 for 3 in four at bats, putting up three singles and a walk.

The loss is no harm for the Marlins, as it was an exhibition game. Morehead City returns to CPL play Thursday night against the Wilson Tobs. First pitch from Fleming Stadium in Wilson, N.C. is set for 7:10 PM.
