MOREHEAD CITY N.C. — The Morehead City Marlins defeated the Holly Springs Salamanders Friday night at Puck O’Neal Field, winning by a 5-2 margin. 

The Salamanders were off to a great start as Alberto Osuna (University of North Carolina) hit a two-run homer at the top of the fourth, surpassing the Marlins’ one-run lead. 

Things took a turn for the worst for Holly Springs when Morehead City scored a four-run fifth inning. Losing pitcher Matthew Plisco gave up two back to back doubles for the Marlins, putting them at their final three-run lead. 

The Salamanders will be back at Ting Stadium Saturday at 6:40p.m. as they host the Peninsula Pilots. We hope to see you there! Tickets are available at
