For Gibson, his stolen base was his 25th, moving him within three of the club record. The Spinners opened up a close game in the ninth when Michael Almanzar knocked in two with a bases-loaded double. Willie Holmes and Ronald Bermudez knocked in the other runs with a single and a sacrifice fly, respectively. The Spinners offense is on a roll, except for last nights game, the team is hitting .341 in their last five victories.

The Spinners look to take the series tonight in Aberdeen when they send Drake Britton to the mound, in his 2009 Spinners debut, at 7:05. Britton will be followed by Ryan Pressly.
