The Post 20 Dirtbags from Salem brought a roster deep with big-school talent to Frank Wade Field, where they capitalized on home runs and gap-shooting hit to defeat the Central Coast Dungies in doubleheader action Monday, 11-4 and 12-2.
The Dirtbags rapped three home runs with batters on base to run up the scoring while Newport cycled through four pitchers. The home team started Game 2 with a two-run lead before Salem found its range, ending the game in the fifth on the 10-run rule.
