Bakersfield coughs up a lead late out West and the Blaze goes down in flames 4-3 in 10 innings.
Carlos Gonzalez, making his first start for the Blaze, fanned seven batters in 3.2 innings of work before reaching his pitch count limit. Wes Mugarian, up from Dayton, pitched a scoreless inning in his AA debut. Brian Pearl blew the save and Kyle McMyne took the loss.
The hitting was up to par, meaning not very good. Bakersfield collected all of four hits in ten hitting. They did, actually, manage to take a 3-2 lead into the bottom of the ninth. Kyle Waldrop had a two-run double. D'Anna also doubled in the game. Singles by Joe Terry and Juan Duran comprise the hit list. Duran also walked twice. The big fellow is now up over .250 on the season.
Bakersfield loses 4-3.
Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!
