Wilson Tobs Smoke Out Visiting Wilmington Sharks

Wilson, N.C. – Following a half hour delay before first pitch due to expected rain that never came, it may have been better for the Wilmington Sharks (2-3, 18-14) to get wet as they dropped a 9-2 decision to the Wilson Tobs (4-2, 13-21) in their last trip to Fleming Stadium this summer.
