The K-Tribe assured their third consecutive series win with their fourth victory in a row, a 7-5 triumph over Frederick on Tuesday night. Kinston has now won four of their last five series dating back to April 21st.
The Kinston Indians trailed 3-0 in the top of the fourth when Jared Goedert unloaded for his first home run of the season, a solo shot to left field. Kinston tied the score with RBI hits from Adam Davis and Jerad Head in the top of the fifth inning. Davis broke the tie in the top of the sixth inning with a towering, two-run, home run to right field; his first round tripper of the season. Davis went 2-for-5 with three RBI. Kinston added two more runs in the eighth inning thanks to two fielding errors by Frederick. Kinston mashed out 13 hits on the night, as every player in the K-Tribe lineup had at least one hit. Kinston has now hit nine homeruns through the first eight games of the roadtrip; they had hit just five home runs in their first 20 games of the season.
