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.
