Potomac pounded out 13 hits, beating Kinston 8-2 Sunday afternoon at Historic Grainger Stadium. After rain delayed the start of the game by 35 minutes, Potomac came out firing with two-run home runs in both the second and third innings. K-Tribe starter Jeanmar Gomez (1-5) was roughed up, giving up five earned runs on six hits through four innings. Jemel Spearman, Frank Diaz and Edgardo Baez each had three hits a piece for Potomac.
Kinston got on the board in the bottom of the eighth inning when Cristo Arnal led off with a double and was driven home by a Beau Mills single. Kinston scored again in the bottom of the ninth when Nick Weglarz led off with a triple and scored on a sacrifice fly by Niuman Romero. Potomac’s starter Adrian Alaniz (4-0) was great, giving up just two hits through six innings of work.
The K-Tribe ends up with a series split from Northern Division leading Potomac. The Indians continue their eight game homestand with four games against Wilmington starting Monday night. Game time 7pm at Historic Grainger Stadium.
