SAVANNAH — The Charleston RiverDogs used an eight-run fifth inning and outstanding pitching from Andre Del Bosque and David Palladino to end a six-game losing streak with a 9-3 victory over Savannah on Sunday afternoon at Historic Grayson Stadium.
The RiverDogs (24-26) trailed, 2-0, after four innings but turned things around in a hurry against Corey Oswalt and the Sand Gnats (24-26) in the fifth.
Vince Conde walked, Alexander Palma singled and Radley Haddad hit a sacrifice bunt that was bobbled by the pitcher to load the bases with nobody out.
Ryan Lindemuth got the scoring going with an RBI single, the first of his career-high three hits, and Devyn Bolasky hit a fielder’s choice to tie the game at 2. Angel Aguilar put the RiverDogs in front for good with a two-run double down the line in left.
Del Bosque (3-0) allowed two runs on four hits, walked one and struck out a pair in five innings.
The RiverDogs return home to open a three-game series against Augusta at Riley Park on Monday at 7:05 p.m.
