WILMINGTON, Del. -- The Wilmington Blue Rocks upended Kinston 7-2 Wednesday night at Frawley Stadium.

The Indians got off to a fast start when a Stephen Head double in the first inning scored Brian Finegan and Trevor Crowe. The runs would dry up after the first as the K-Tribe managed just two hits after the second inning.

With two outs in the fourth inning, Wilmington tied the game on a John Otness double scoring Scott White. The Blue Rocks took the lead for good when the next batter, Michael Hall, hit a triple to right field scoring Otness and giving Wilmington a 3-2 lead.

The game was put out of reach later in the fourth when an arrant throw to third base on a pick off attempt by K-Tribe catcher Armando Camacaro sailed into left field allowing Michael Hall and Dominic Ramos to score. The Blue Rocks added two more runs in the fifth to secure the 7-2 win.

Andrew Dobies (2-0) got the win for Wilmington, Jensen Lewis (1-2) picked up his second straight loss.

The K-Tribe (9-4) lost their first series of the year, but still owns the best record in the Carolina League, as Wilmington improves their record to 6-8.

The Tribe will be back in Kinston today at 7 p.m., opening up a three game home series with the Myrtle Beach Pelicans.
