MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. -- The K-Tribe ended the first half of the season with a 4-2 loss to Myrtle Beach on Sunday afternoon at Coastal Federal Field.

The Indians ended the first half of the season with a franchise best 47-23 record, Kinston's most wins ever in a half of the season.

The K-Tribe took a 2-1 lead when catcher Armando Camacaro led off the fifth inning with a bunt single, and later scored on a ground out by Argenis Reyes. Myrtle Beach would come back in the sixth inning with a two-run homer by Carl Loadenthal, breaking the tie and giving the Pelicans a 3-2 lead they would not relinquish.

Scott Roehl took the loss for the K-Tribe in relief. Jensen Lewis started the game, going 52/3 innings, giving up six hits and two earned runs, picking up his fifth no decision in a row.

Kinston will take today off, and then start the second half of the season Tuesday night at Lynchburg with Chuck Lofgren taking the mound for the K-Tribe.
