The Charleston RiverDogs rallied from a three-run deficit with a four-run sixth inning to claim their first three-game winning streak of the year and beat Greenville, 6-5, in South Atlantic League action Friday night before 4,376 at Riley Park.
Charleston (9-7) stayed in a first-place tie with Asheville, while the Drive (8-8) fell to third in the SAL Southern Division standings.
The heart of the Charleston order gave Greenville reliever Garrett Rau (1-1) a rude welcome in the sixth, cracking four base hits to tally four runs and reclaim the lead for good.
Gary Sanchez's base hit through the right side of the infield scooted under the glove of right fielder Bryce Brentz, plating Anderson Feliz and sending J.R. Murphy on to third and Sanchez to second.
Rob Segedin did not allow Rau any breathing room, ripping a two-run double to right to knot the score at 5. Rau set down the next two batters but couldn't wiggle his way out of more harm, as Jose Mojica sent a sharp grounder back through the middle to drive in Segedin for a 6-5 RiverDogs lead.
Manny Barreda (1-0), who relieved starter Shane Greene, got the victory. The RiverDogs have won the first three of four in the five-game series, which wraps up at 7 p.m . today.
