Wilmington, N.C. – The Edenton Steamers (21-8, 1-2) came away with a 4-0 victory on Thursday night over the Wilmington Sharks (14-15, 0-2) on timely hits and a good pitching performance from Nick Miller.

In the top of the seventh inning, the Steamers picked up three runs on three hits off the bats of Alex Delgado, Chase Harris and Nick Thompson to extend the lead to 4-0 and hang on for the victory.

Zach Stephens, Alex Freedman, and Zach MacAneney each picked up two hits in the ball game for the Sharks.
