WOODBRIDGE, Va. — After a slow start, David Renfroe went 4 for 4 with a double, a homer and two RBIs to spark the Salem Red Sox to a 7-2 road win over the Potomac Nationals.
Renfroe had opened the season with just one hit in 14 at-bats, but he knocked his first Carolina League homer down the left-field line to give the Sox a 1-0 lead in the top of the fifth. Carson Blair scored on a bunt single by Felix Sanchez and the Sox took a three-run lead when Henry Ramos scored on an error by the Potomac catcher.
Nationals pitcher Robbie Ray had been outstanding to that point, allowing just one hit in his first 13 batters faced.
The Nationals scored their only two runs in the fifth on a double by Adrian Neito and an RBI ground out by Caleb Ramsey, but Salem pitcher Mickey Pena left after five innings of work with a 3-2 lead that stood up for the win. Pena gave up the two runs on five hits, striking out four and walking none to earn his first Carolina League victory.
Garin Cecchini also had two hits for Salem.
Salem took the series from the Nationals 2-1.
ON DECK: The Salem Sox hand the ball to lefty Henry Owens to open their home schedule Friday at 7:05 against the Myrtle Beach Pelicans.
