Kinston evened the Southern Division Championship Series with an 8-6 victory on Thursday Night in Myrtle Beach. In the 11th Bo Greenwell led off the frame with a single and was sacrificed to second base by Adam Abraham. Jesus Aguilar then delivered a go-ahead single making the score 7-6. Kinston added an insurance run in the inning on a base hit to center by Casey Frawley. Preston Guilmet slammed the door shut in the bottom of the eleventh ensuring the win and evening the best of five series at one game apiece.
Myrtle Beach struck first, with five first inning runs. Francisco Jimenez lasted just two thirds of an inning. Jimenez suffered his first poor start since moving in to the starting rotation permanently on August seventh. All runs were charged to Jimenez, two unearned as the K-Tribe committed two fielding errors in the first.
