The Saltdogs sat out a 55-minute rain delay before the start of their game with the El Paso Diablos, then rallied from a 4-0 deficit to win 13-4 and take two out of three.
The comeback started in the bottom of the fourth, when an RBI single by Shea McFeely and a wild pitch pulled Lincoln within 4-2. The Saltdogs then took the lead for good with a three-run fifth, highlighted by McFeely’s two-run single. The Dogs added an unearned run in the sixth, then blew the doors off the game with a seven-run seventh inning. Shawn McGill hit a two-run triple in the frame, followed by Jonny Kaplan’s two-run single and a two-run home run for Dustin Yount. McFeely tacked on an RBI single to complete the scoring, his fourth run batted in of the night.Lincoln starter Brian Campbell (4-2) struggled with his control all night, but lasted long enough to earn the win. He gave up a two-run homer to Bryon Smith in the second inning, then committed an error in the fourth on a play where two more runs scored. Campbell settled down over his final two innings, however, pitching out of a sixth-inning jam to keep the Dogs in front.
On the night, McFeely went 3-for-5 with four RBI. Yount was 2-for-3 with his two runs batted in, and Eduardo Rios was 3-for-6 with an RBI and three runs scored. McGill also had three hits, with he and Kaplan driving in two runs apiece. On the mound, Daryl Arreola pitched the final three innings, allowing no runs on a hit to pick up his first save.
