The Asheville Tourists got to work early and trounced the RiverDogs, gaining first place honors in the league’s southern divisions.
Jeff Cunningham ripped a three run homer off the Riverdogs’ pitcher Betances. Then David Christianson teed off with his first of two homers on the day — making the score 5-to-0 in the first inning. His second home run shot increased Asheville’s lead to 6-to-0. Chase Oleander’s error gave the Tourists an opportunity to score again when Michael Mitchell singled to right, bringing home Lars Davis. A unearned run was recorded later in the game, giving Asheville the victory 8-to-0.
