6-4 Win by Aviators Continues Hot Start
Fans who gathered at Farmers Market Stadium saw a good contest between the North Carolina Aviators and Ontario Blue Pirates.

North Carolina third baseman Jim Simpson had a 3-RBI performance, which helped his team grab a 6-4 win over the Ontario Blue Pirates. The winner was Jorge Márquez, who threw 102 pitches over 7 innings. The right-hander was charged with 4 runs on 10 hits. Lou Moore, summoned from the bullpen, notched his 11th save.

David Ruíz, who is a two-time All-Star, aided the North Carolina cause with a run-scoring walk in the top of the sixth. For the game, the right fielder went 2 for 3 with 2 singles and a walk.

Ruíz told a North Carolina Citizen reporter that he was "satisfied" with the win.

The Aviators, now 20-3, have had a terrific start to the season.
