This is unconfirmed, but apparently Adam Davis has been sent back down to Lake County. The primary reason supposedly will be to get him extended playing time at catcher, which he just picked up recently when he was in extended spring training for a few weeks in May.

Kinston Comes Back, Win 3-2

The Kinston Indians earned their 11th comeback win of the year, and their third win in a row, beating the Salem Avalanche, 3-2, in the opener of a three game series in Virginia. The K-Tribe bats couldn't solve Salem starter Erick Abreu until the seventh when Alex Castillo and Jerad Head had run-scoring singles to tie the score at two. Jason Denham was cut down at the plate to end the seventh, but came up in a big way when he hit the game-winning single in the ninth inning plating Nick Weglarz.

The Avalanche got to starter Josh Tomlin early with two straight hits to lead off the game and scoring in the first on a sacrifice fly. Tomlin settled down, however, striking out seven, tying a season high, and allowing a run in the fifth without a ball leaving the infield.

The win was the second for Matt Meyer (2-0) in relief and Neil Wagner pitched a perfect ninth for his second save. The loss goes to Jason Dominguez, who gave up the RBI single and the unearned run after a passed ball forced Weglarz to third.

The two teams are back at it tomorrow at 7:07, with Hector Rondon (2-3) taking the hill for the K-Tribe as they look to earn their fourth straight win.
