The Sea Dogs trailed Erie 5-4 when Wagner stepped up. He worked to a full count before swatting a fastball to deep center field, scoring two runs for a 6-5 lead. Wagner then scored on Will Middlebrooks’ single.

Alex Hassan singled in two runs in the eighth inning.

Reliever Josh Fields (2-0) picked up the win with two innings of relief.
