Claudio Custodio had three hits to lead the Charleston Riverdogs to a 4-2 win over the West Virginia Power in South Atlantic League play Tuesday night at Riley Park.
The RiverDogs (9-9) jumped ahead early in the first inning. Outfielder Jake Cave doubled in his first career at-bat with the RiverDogs, and later moved to third on a single by Cito Culver. Cave scored on a throwing error by the pitcher.
Back-to-back Charleston errors gave the Power runners on first and second with no outs in the top of the third inning. They capitalized on the RiverDogs’ mistakes with a two-run triple by Dilson Herrera.
Charleston regained the lead in the bottom of the sixth inning. Following a Kelvin DeLeon single and a Taylor Dugas double, Custodio hit a single to left field that scored DeLeon and tied the game. Dugas then scored the RiverDogs’ go-ahead run on a double by Cave.
A dropped pop fly in the bottom of the seventh inning allowed Dante Bichette Jr. to score the fourth RiverDogs run of the night.
The second game of this three-game series against the West Virginia Power is this morning at 11:05. Vicente Campos (0-0, 5.00 ERA) will be on the mound for Charleston against RHP Tyler Glasnow (0-0, 1.54 ERA).
Students from around the Lowcountry will be in attendance for another Education Day.
