WILSON, NC – “Win’s a win.”

That was the sentiment in the Marlins’ dugout after their 4-3 victory over the Wilson Tobs on Tuesday night at Fleming Stadium.

The Marlins got off to a great start, scoring 4 runs in the first 3 innings on the strength of two home runs. The first, a three-run bomb off the bat of first baseman Conner VanCleave (Kansas), came in the top of the 2nd inning after Sean Johnson (Belmont Abbey) and Gibson Krzeminski (Canisius) both hit 2-out singles. VanCleave’s home run cleared the 30 foot wall in Fleming Stadium behind the fence.

The Marlins added the 4th and eventual game-winning run in the 3rd inning, when Justin Johnson (Lafayette) launched a solo home run on the first pitch of his at-bat.

After that, the Marlins only managed two hits the rest of the way and left 6 men on base in the last 5 innings of the game.

The Marlins were clutch pitching, leaving 8 Tobs baserunners on. There were multiple innings where the Tobs had multiple men on base, but Wilson was only able to manage single runs in the 4th, 5th and 8th innings. Wilson’s Drew DeVine hit a solo home run in the bottom of the 8th inning to cut the lead to one.

Logan Campbell (Charleston-WV) got the start for the Marlins, and his second start of the year was a solid one. The righty pitched 4 and 1/3 innings, allowing 2 earned runs and striking out three with 5 walks.

Cam Seguin (UMass-Lowell) got the win, going 3 and 1/3 innings, allowing 3 hits, one earned run and striking out 5. Tyler Cochran (Nevada) got his first save of the summer getting the last 5 outs, including striking out the side in the 9th inning.

Tonight’s game was Jesse Lancaster’s 99th win as the head coach of the Marlins. He goes for number 100 tomorrow night at The Rock against the first place Peninsula Pilots. First pitch is set for 7:05.
