The Asheboro ZooKeepers faced off against the Wilmington Sharks on Thursday, July 28th.
Wilmington was able to get on the board first, plating a run in the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th innings.
The ZooKeepers started their comeback in the bottom of the sixth. Singles from Ethan McKay,
Quinten Collins  and Justin Wilcoxen allowed for two runs to cross the plate.
Each team added a run in the seventh, Wilmington’s coming on a solo shot and Asheboro’s
coming from a sac-fly from Quinten Collins.
A late push in the bottom of the eighth gave the ZooKeepers the final lead of the night. A two-run homer from Bryce Marsh sealed the deal, giving Asheboro the 5-4 victory.
