WOODBRIDGE, Va. -- Jose Constanza delivered the game-winning RBI as Kinston began a week-long roadswing with a come-from-behind, 9-5 victory over Potomac on Monday evening.

The K-Tribe remained unbeaten in seven outings on the Nationals' home diamond this season. Kinston (17-11) and Myrtle Beach remained tied for the Southern Division lead after the Pelicans' 7-1 rout of Frederick.

Potomac dropped to 16-14.

Trailing 4-2, the K-Tribe's Jared Goedert connected on a game-tying, two-RBI double in the fifth inning. Brian Finegan walked and Goedert scored on Constanza's single to left field. Josh Rodriguez plated Finegan with an RBI groundout to make it 6-4.

Constanza, Rodriguez and Jerad Head supplied RBI hits in Kinston's three-run, sixth-inning outburst. Constanza finished 3-for-5 with two RBI.

Erik Stiller (3-2) earned the victory with two-plus innings of hitless work out of the bullpen. Stiller fanned four Potomac batters and Matt Meyer mopped up with two scoreless innings.

Frank Herrmann started, but received a no-decision. He allowed three earned runs on seven hits in four-plus innings.

The teams continue their three-game series tonight.
