OCONOMOWOC, Wis. — John Silviano led Fargo-Moorhead's power parade, hitting two of the RedHawks' four home runs in a 7-1 win over Lake Country on Monday before 1,130 at Wisconsin Brewing Co. Park.

Leo Pina and Peter Maris also homered and F-M starter Davis Feldman turned in seven strong innings as the RedHawks won for an eighth time in their last nine games.

Silviano and Pina hit back-to-back solo home runs in the fifth inning to break a scoreless tie. In the sixth inning, Pina singled and Silviano followed with a two-run shot to make it 4-1.

In the seventh, F-M's Evan Anderson walked, stole second and third and scored on Christian Correa's sacrifice fly. Maris followed with a solo homer.

In the eighth, Pina and Silviano hit back-to-back doubles for a 7-1 lead.

Feldman wasn't giving the DockHounds much to counter the RedHawks. He allowed a run on five hits, walking two and striking out three. Tanner Riley was tough in relief, working two hitless innings and striking out two.

Silviano and Pina both were 3 for 4 and Silviano finished with four RBIs. Seven of the RedHawks' nine hits went for extra bases.

The RedHawks have the best record in the American Association at 24-10, and they lead the West Division by a game and a half over Kansas City.

The RedHawks and Lake Country play the second game of a four-game series at 6:35 p.m. Tuesday, June 20.

Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
