K-Tribe benefits from error

Published in Sports on May 21, 2008 4:03 PM

Carlos Rivero scampered home on a ninth-inning throwing error and Kinston turned back Myrtle Beach 4-3 on Wednesday evening.

Tied at 3-3, Rivero drew a two-out walk to start the game-clinching rally. Jared Head doubled down the third-base line and the Pelicans' left fielder attempted to throw Rivero out at third.

The errant throw sailed to the backstop and gave the K-Tribe their 18th win of the season.

Kinston hurlers Luis Perdomo, Matt Meyer and Mike Pontius combined for four innings of shutout relief. Meyer earned the mound win.
