Lynchburg - The Hillcats exploded for 16 hits including five runs in the seventh and came from behind to beat Wilmington 9-6 Thursday night at Calvin Falwell Field.
The win evens the series and gets Lynchburg back in the lead for the wild card playoff spot. Trent Moses hit a bases-loaded double in that seventh inning to put the Hillcats up for good. Five Hillcats had multi-hit games in the contest. Daniel Castro and David Rohm each had three-hit games.
Anthony Nunez hit his first professional home run in the fifth inning, a solo shot to lead off the frame and at the time get the Hillcats within two. The Blue Rocks got that run back in the top of the seventh off Ryan Weber (6-4) who got the win in his first appearance since returning from the disabled list.
The rubber game of the series is Friday night.
