LYNCHBURG - Three Lynchburg pitchers combined on a four-hit shutout of the Salem Red Sox on Thursday night at City Stadium, as the Hillcats rolled to a 5-0 victory and extended their winning streak to four games.
Lynchburg got on the scoreboard first with a run in the bottom of the second inning when Kyle Kubitza ripped a ball down the right field line for a triple and scored three pitches later on a wild pitch by Salem's starting pitcher Heri Quevedo.
The Hillcats struck again in the fourth for a run when Josh Elander doubled past the third baseman and scored on David Rohm's triple.
Winning pitcher Ryan Hinson got his first Carolina League win. He is the all-time wins leader for the Wichita Wingnuts of the independent American Association.
Quevedo gave up four runs over four innings, and got very little help from his teammates.
Blake Swihart had two of Salem's four hits, including a double, but he was also picked off of first base caught stealing.
Salem shortstop Nick Natoli committed two errors.
ON DECK: A.J. Holland will start for Lynchburg in today's 7 p.m. game at City Stadium. The Red Sox have yet to name a starter.
