Hampton, VA- The Morehead City Marlins upended the Peninsula Pilots 3-2 for their first road win of the season.
The Pilots struck first on a solo homerun off the bat of catcher Mac Moise in the second inning.
Morehead City answered back to tie the game at one in the fourth, but would relinquish it in the bottom half of the inning again.
The Marlins used some key two out hitting in the top of the fifth to pull ahead thanks to back to back RBI singles from Ben Watson and Mason Maners put the Fish ahead 3-2.
The rest of the way it was all about the Marlins bullpen which put up five hitless innings in relief to secure the road victory.
Matt Hickey got the save, his first of the season, and newcomer Matt Lozovoy was awarded the win in his first appearance as a Marlin.
Morehead City will have off tomorrow before returning to Big Rock Stadium in an exhibition game Monday night at 7 o’clock.
