FAYETTEVILLE —Miguelangel Sierra took a 1 and 1 pitch over the left field wall for a grand slam in the fourth inning to lead the Woodpeckers to a 6-2 win Wednesday night at SEGRA Stadium.

Fayetteville got on the board first with a two-run homer by Scott Manea in the second inning.

Dylan Hardy walked to lead off the top of the third for Salem followed by a Jagger Rusconi single.

Jarren Duran’s ground out moved Hardy and Rusconi up a base.

Jonathan Ortega then laced a single down the third base line, scoring both runners to tie the game.

Winning pitcher Brett Conine and reliever Shawn Dubin slammed the door on the Red Sox over the last six innings to preserve the win.

Daniel Gonzalez was saddled with the loss giving up six runs on six hits with five strikeouts and three walks in six innings of work.

The teams will finish up the four-game series on Thursday with the first pitch slated for 7 p.m.
