FARGO — Gary SouthShore broke open a tied game in a four-run eighth inning and the RailCats prevented a Fargo-Moorhead sweep with a 6-3 win on Wednesday before a matinee crowd of 3,057 at Newman Outdoor Field.

The RedHawks and RailCats were tied 2-2 through seven innings but Gary surged ahead thanks to Nate Scantlin's run-scoring single, a Michael Woodworth sacrifice fly and Jesus Marriaga's two-run double.

The RedHawks had a big threat going in the ninth. Sam Dexter walked to lead off and Evan Alexander singled. Ben Livorsi's one-out single loaded the bases and Dexter then scored on Peter Maris' sacrifice fly to right. Manny Boscan drew a two-out walk to reload the bases but Gary reliever Trevor Simms got Drew Ward to bounce into a force at third to end the game.

Maris also hit his 18th home run of the season in the first inning and Leo Pina was 2-for-3 and scored a run in the seventh. Alexander, Nick Novak and Livorsi had the only other RedHawks hits.

F-M reliever Luke Lind, who got nicked for all four RailCats runs in the eighth, took the loss.
