Drive tops R’Dogs

David Renfroe and Henry Ramos launched two-run homers for the Greenville Drive, and they went on to defeat the Charleston RiverDogs, 9-6, in South Atlantic League baseball at Riley Park with 4,598 in attendance on Saturday night.

Greenville (44-48, 10-12) rallied from a 6-3 deficit to take the series opener from the RiverDogs (52-38, 13-10).

After falling behind 3-0, Charleston went up by three with a six-run fourth inning, highlighted by a two-run double from Eduardo Sosa and a two-run single by Cito Culver.

But the Drive knotted the score in the sixth and went on top with three in the seventh.
