Myrtle Beach - The Hillcats' Kyle Wren extended his hitting streak to 13 games, but Lynchburg failed to score as Myrtle Beach won at home 5-0 Monday night.
Lynchburg hit into two double plays and had a runner thrown out at home on a safety squeeze, all in the first five innings.
Wren went 2-for-4 in the game and his 13-game hitting streak is the longest active streak in the Carolina League.
Greg Ross allowed just one run through the first five innings but ran into trouble in the sixth. David Lyon hit a two-run triple, Chris Bostick followed with another rbi triple, part of a 4-run sixth inning that broke the game open. Potomac came from behind to beat the Carolina Mudcats 5-4 Monday night, dropping the Hillcats 3-and-a-half games out of first place with six days left in the first half. Potomac's magic number is down to three, the Hillcats have six games left to play, the Nationals have seven.
