WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - Keury De La Cruz drove in Matty Johnson for the winning run with a sacrifice fly in the top of the eighth inning as the Salem Red Sox won a pitchers' duel 2-1 over the Winston-Salem Dash at BB&T Ballpark on Thursday night.
Neither Sox starter Mickey Pena nor Dash starter Jake Cose surrendered much until the fifth inning, as Winston-Salem's Josh Richmond led off with a double, advanced to third on a groundout and was brought home by a Micah Johnson RBI single to give the Dash a 1-0 lead.
Salem came back in the top of the sixth as Sean Coyle walked then scored on Henry Ramos' sixth triple of the year, tying the score at one.
Cose left the game after seven innings, allowing only one run on two hits with four walks and eight strikeouts.
But reliever Joe Dvorsky promptly gave up a leadoff single to Johnson and walked Coyle. Henry Ramos sacrificed the runners to second and third to set up De La Cruz's game winning sacrifice fly.
Pena got the win pitching seven innings allowing only one run on five hits with a walk and five strikeouts. Matty Ott recorded his third save with two innings of scoreless relief.
Salem goes for the series sweep tonight at 7 p.m. as William Cuevas (7-7, 5.32) faces off against Bryan Blough (9-10, 4.42).
