FREDERICK, Md. — Willy Yahn went 3-for-5 with a double and two RBIs and starter Cody Sedlock scattered a run on three hits with six strikeouts in seven innings as the Frederick Keys downed the Salem Red Sox 5-2 at NYMEO Field on Sunday afternoon to claim the decisive game of the three-game weekend series.

Salem got on the board in the top of the first when Pedro Castellanos singled home Jarren Duran. Frederick’s Trevor Craport tied the game in the third with an RBI double, and Yahn put the Keys up 3-1 with an RBI groundout in the bottom of the fourth and a run-scoring single in the bottom of the sixth. Frederick put the game out of reach in the seventh when two runs scored on a fielding error by Castellanos on a grounder from Austin Hays. Duran got Salem a run back in the top of the eighth on a sacrifice fly, but Keys’ reliever Luis Perez, despite allowing three walks, shut the door on any potential rally to preserve the win. Sedlock ran his record to 3-0 with the victory, while Sox starter Jhonathan Diaz, took the hard-luck loss, allowing only two runs on seven hits in five innings.

ON DECK: Salem returns home to Haley Toyota Field to begin an eight-game homestand Monday, starting with a four-game set with Wilmington . Game one is scheduled to feature Daniel Lynch (2-2, 3.95) for Wilmington against Daniel Gonzalez (1-4, 3.35) for the Red Sox. First pitch is set for 7:05 p.m.
