Myrtle Beach C VINCENT DIFAZIO drove in four of the five runs with a three-run homer in the second inning and a solo homer in the fifth inning...DH JEREMIE TICE hit a three-run home run in the sixth inning, but that was the extent of Kinston’s offense, as he went 2-for-4 with a run scored and three RBI.
