The Lincoln Saltdogs scored four runs over the final three innings to claim a rubber-match win 7-4 over the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks on Wednesday night.
Fargo (9-9) power-hitters Keury De La Cruz and Charlie Valerio each came to the plate representing the tying run in the ninth inning. Saltdogs (12-8) closer J.R. Bunda struck out each of the sluggers using seven straight off-speed pitches to get the save and end the game.
The Saltdogs have won three straight series and eight of the last 11 games. They have an off day, today, before hosting the Cleburne Railroaders for a three-game series starting Friday night. First pitch is at 7:05 PM.
