Pensacola gets a two-out single by Bryson Smith (.316) and a walk to Donald Lutz. A ground ball force out ends the threat.
Crabbe looking like meat early. Back-to-back singles off of Tim to begin the Jacksonville second. Crabbe 'Arroyos' out of trouble with a K and another ground ball double play. Nice. Pensacola is retired in order.
Crabbe surrenders a single and a one-out homer. 3-0.
Pensacola erupts for three runs on one hit. Crabbe walks, LaMarre reaches on an error. Smith is HBP. Lutz walks to bring in the first run. Selsky singled home a pair. 3-3.
Baseball can be an odd duck. Jacksonville three runs on eight hits. Pensacola three runs on two hits. Heading into the bottom of the eighth, Dayton had three runs on nine hits. Lake County had four runs on two hits.
After the three-run outburst in the third that tied things up, Pensacola took the rest of the night off. They fall by a score of 10-3. They got singles from Selsky and Lohman the rest of the night.
Tim Crabbe 4.2IP 14H 7ER 2BB 2K 3HR.
Shaun Ellis (Who?) 1IP 3H 3ER 1BB 0K 0HR.
Chris Manno did pitch two scoreless frames.
Josh Ravin walked two in his inning on the mound but kept Jacksonville from adding to the carnage.
You might be asking yourself, 'Who is Shaun Ellis'? I know I am. Well it seems he was a late-round draft pick back in the day by the Phillies. He has only played independent ball, putting up forgettable numbers.
The Phillies drafted Shaun Ellis in the 32nd round in ’08, but he never appeared in a game for the organization. He spent the ’09 through ’11 seasons playing independent ball, but he appears to have taken a year off prior to signing with Cincinnati.
