First-inning charge propels Tornadoes.

NEWARK, N.J. - After giving up 18 runs and 22 hits on Tuesday, the Worcester Tornadoes recovered quickly, scoring five runs in the first inning on the way to an 8-4 win over the Newark Bears last night at Bears-Eagles Riverfront Stadium.

Eight Tornadoes got hits as the team collected 13 for the game. Eleven of those came against starter and losing pitcher Jesse Estrada, who allowed eight runs in five innings.

Nick Salotti went 2 for 5 for Worcester with three RBIs and scored twice. Ryan Crespi went 3 for 4 and Chase Fontaine went 2 for 3, including his first homer of the season.

Ryan Bicondoa got the win, throwing seven innings and allowing just two earned runs. It was the third straight start in which he has given the Tornadoes seven innings. In his six games with the team, he hasn't allowed more than two earned runs in a start.

The Tornadoes took the four-game series, 3-1, while scoring 38 runs in Newark. They are off today before starting a home series with Pittsfield tomorrow.
