LYNCHBURG - Zach Jadofsky leaned toward the third-base line, obviously thinking that he had recorded a critical strikeout to leave the bases loaded in the top of the 11th inning.
When the strike wasn't called, Jadofsky stood just in front of the pitching mound as Nick Natoli trotted home for the go-ahead run.
Keury De La Cruz drew a two-out, bases-loaded walk that proved to be the difference as Salem outlasted Lynchburg, 5-4, in the teams' nearly four-hour contest Friday night at City Stadium.
Salem (53-57) finally capitalized in the 11th after leaving the bases loaded in the 10th inning and having runners on second and third in the ninth with one out and not adding any more insurance runs to a 4-3 lead. The Red Sox sent 20 batters to the plate in the final three innings.
The loss snapped Lynchburg's four-game winning streak and prevented the Hillcats (51-55) from extending the streak to five games for the first time this season.
Before Robby Scott was able to record the final out for Salem, the game was delayed a couple of minutes as a skunk appeared on the warning track in right-center field.
