Minor-League Action of Monday, April 29, 2013
Pensacola, piled up with rainouts, played two this afternoon at Tennessee. Both ended 3-0.
In the good 3-0, it was a lot of Josh Smith: 5 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 4 K. Lee Hyde and Drew Hayes (1 BB, 2 K) finished up with an inning each. Lohman and LaMarre, at the top of the order, were each 2-3, Lohman's a pair of doubles. Brodie Greene homered. Surprisingly, it was Hayes' first save.
Lohman also had Pensacola's only hit, a single, in the daycap. Tim Crabbe pretty much matched Smith--5 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K--and Josh Ravin's inning held the fort, but Wilkin De La Rosa was another story. The game-loser was a 3-run shot with two outs.
