As they head home for the Coastal Plain League All-Star festivities, the Peninsula Pilots will do so as the league's hottest team.

The Pilots (19-13) improved to 5-0 in the CPL's second half by holding off the host Wilmington Sharks 3-2 Saturday.

Norfolk State's Justin Bhatti gained the victory, and the Richmond Spiders' Ryan Cook, who grew up in Virginia Beach, gained his fifth save.

Two Peninsula runs scored on throwing errors, and Josh Silver's groundout brought home the other.

Delaware's Zach Lopes had two of the Pilots' three hits. Former Pilot Zach MacAneney had two hits for the Sharks.

International League:

Josh Stinson pitched seven innings of three-hit ball for the victory as the Norfolk Tides beat the Charlotte Knights 4-1 in Fort Mill, S.C., in a series opener.

Relievers Daniel McCutchen and IL All-Star Jairo Asencio -- who gained his 19th save of the year -- finished the win with an inning each. Jason Pridie, Henry Urrutia and Yamaico Navarro each had two of the Tides' 11 hits, and Chris Snyder belted a ninth-inning home run.

Eastern League:

The Akron Aeros registered their third victory in three nights over the Richmond Flying Squirrels at The Diamond.

This time it was 9-3 before 9,017 fans, with the Aeros scoring four runs to break a 0-0 tie in the seventh and tacking on five runs in the eighth.

For the second time in that span, a Richmond-area resident factored in heavily for Cleveland's Double-A affiliate.

Will Roberts (6-6), a former University of Virginia, earned the victory by pitching 6 2/3 shutout innings, holding the Squirrels to three hits. Squirrels starter Craig Westcott pitched six shutout innings.
