WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - The Wilmington Sharks still are looking for their first home victory after a 5-4 loss to the Edenton Steamers at Buck Hardee Field on Monday.
After the Steamers jumped ahead with a four-run first inning, a Ben Highfill RBI double put the Sharks on the board in the second.
The teams traded runs before a solo homer by Wilmington's Walker Imwalle in the bottom of the seventh cut the lead to 5-3.
Cory Everett got the Sharks to within one after scoring on a wild pitch in the ninth before the Steamers escaped with the win.
The Sharks host Morehead City in a doubleheader Wednesday starting at 6:05 p.m.
