GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Second baseman Carlos Casimiro last night became the first player in the Delmarva Shorebirds' two-year history to hit two home runs in a game, leading the Single-A team to a 5-0 win over the Greensboro Bats in South Atlantic League play.

Casimiro's homers came in the second and sixth innings, both with one on, for Delmarva (4-4). Starter Americo Peguero earned the win, allowing three hits over six innings. Ryan Kohlmeier pitched the final three innings for his second save.

Casimiro's first homer was Delmarva's lone hit through five innings off Bats starter Julio Rangel.
