Fourth of July Fireworks!

Kinston was mired in their longest losing streak of the season going into the Fourth of July Holiday contest with the Wilmington Blue Rocks. They ended up salvaging the final game of the homestand and the series in front of a Grainger Stadium record crowd of 5,513. They ended up doing it with their latest of their recent home run carnage, and another masterful performance by 20-year-old pitcher Hector Rondon. Click below for the highlights.

A Big Lead, A Comeback and a Wild Finish

Despite the Pelicans clinching the division the night before, both teams played for keeps on Saturday Night.

The Indians jumped out in the first inning thanks to Nick Weglarz:

They then got a big inning from Niuman Romero, and was capped by a Beau Mills no-doubt visit to the deli:

The Indians relinquished the lead, only to tie things in the ninth:

That set things up with Luis Perdomo on the mound to try to hold things down in the 10th:

The heroics then came with the bases loaded in the bottom half:
