It is another All-You-Can-Eat Tuesday at Historic Fleming Stadium as the Wilmington Sharks come to town. The Tobs and Sharks will face off for the third and final time in the first half. The Road team has one the first two matchups but the Tobs will look to break that trend tonight, trying for their third win in-a-row. The Tobs are 6-4 over their last 10 games.
Last night in Holly Springs, the Tobs were able to emerge victorious on the road by a final score of 7-3. Starting pitcher, Trent Harris, was able to snag his second victory of the year, making his record 2-1. Three different Wilson players were able to belt a ball over the fence at Ting Stadium. Mason Sykes three-run bomb gave the Tobs a 3-1 advantage in the fourth. Matt Schark’s, who is now tied for the league-lead with six, solo-shot made it 4-1 and Scott Mackiewicz three-run homer extended the lead in the sixth to 7-1 Wilson.
The Salamanders were able to grab two more runs late in the game, but it would not be enough as the Tobs Rolled to another road victory moving them into a tie for 1st place in the CPL’s East Division.
Wilson will play their first home game of the week tonight versus Wilmington, Tri-City will come to town on Thirsty Thursday and Peninsula will travel in on Sunday to conclude the first half of the CPL season. Tickets are still available for Tuesday’s game and the rest of the week’s contest but they are going fast as the Tobs look to return to the Petitt Cup Playoffs for the first time since 2019. You can purchase tickets through showpass online or at the box office when gates open, one hour before scheduled first pitch.
