The final score after 5 innings was 4-1 on Saturday night in favor of the Petersburg Generals.
In front of a packed audience full of active military, reservist, retired military and veterans the Generals picked up the win on Military Appreciation Night over the visiting Morehead City Marlins. The game was shortened due to rain, being called after five complete innings.
Generals starter Hunter Peck (1-4) picked up the win, after giving up one earned run over five innings pitched. Marlins right-hander Wyatt Hamilton (1-2) was pulled from the game after giving up four runs in the bottom of the fourth.
Marlins third baseman Mark Vaughn drove home the lone run for Morehead City, with a RBI single in the top of the second to put them on the board first.
Generals outfielder Babe Thomas drove in the Generals first run, scoring Sammy Miller. Adam Bauer also came across the plate after an error in centerfield by the Marlins Tyler Weyenburg. Generals catcher Cody Doyle also got in on the action driving home a run with an opposite field single scoring Chandler Corely, the fourth run on the inning. After two successful defense plays by the Marlins the inning was finally over.
The Generals will be back in action to finish off their weekend home stand against the Wilmington Sharks on a Sunday afternoon matinee. First pitch is slated for 4:05 pm, gates open at 3:00pm.
