Re: Minor League Updates: Tuesday 5/07/2013
Sharky Rogers is on the mound for Pensacola as they visit Jacksonville. The score is all knotted up at one in the middle of the fifth.
Rogers with another excellent outing. 5IP 4H 1R 1ER 3BB 8K.
Devin Lohman has continued his recent upsurge with a double and a walk.
Ryan LaMarre has singled and scored the Wahoos' lone run. Tucker Barnhart drove him home with a single. Barnhart's average is up to .288.
Game tied at 1 at the end of five.
Rogers pretty much had his way with 8 of the 9 Jacksonville hitters. However, Christian Yelich had him figured out. He went 3 for 3 against Rogers, with two of the knocks being three-baggers.
Kyle Lotzkar came on in the sixth and gave up an unearned run on three walks and a HBP. Tucker Barnhart dropped a foul pop to make the run unearned. Pensacola bounced right back in the top of the seventh on a double by Bryson Smith and singles by Mattair and Gilmartin. 2-2.
Smith starts another rally in the top of the ninth with a single. He moves up on a sac bunt and rides home on a single by Selsky. Drew Hayes to try to save the game for Pensacola in the bottom of the ninth. Loek Van Mil stands to be the winner if the one-run lead holds up.
Hayes coughs up the lead and it is free baseball in the Southern League. In the top of the twelfth, Brodie Greene singles and is standing on third after a David Vidal single. Tucker Barnhart reaches on an error as the go-ahead run scores.
Josh Ravin was perfect for two innings, striking out four. He was pinch hit for in the twelfth. As of yet no idea who the seventh pitcher of the evening will be for the Blue Fish. Pensacola pitchers have struck out 17 in the game so far.
Wilkin De La Rosa is on. And De La Rosa blows the save as the first batter to face him leaves the park. On to the thirteenth.
Hey, Mace, I am generally not one for breaking convention....BUT...this Christian Yelich guy is making me think twice. He is 5 for 6 with two singles, two triples and twelfth-inning, game-tying bomb. If he would have been a smidgen slower on one of those triples he would be riding a cycle right now.
Let's see if the third time can be the charm. Brodie Greene singled home Gilmartin as Pensacola takes a 5-4 lead in to the bottom of the thirteenth.
Wilkin takes his chance at redemption and cashes it at the window. Pensacola winds up striking out 20 Jacksonville batters in a 5-4 win.
Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!
