Game Notes

Daniel Corcino got the start for the Blue Wahoos and ran into trouble in the first inning as he allowed two runs. Pensacola took the lead right back though as they scored three runs in the top of the second inning. Corcino ran into more trouble in the fourth inning, allowing three more runs as Mobile took a 5-3 lead. Corcino left after the fifth and handed the game over to Fabian Williamson and Brooks Pinckard who kept the team in the game with three shutout innings of relief between the two of them. The offense just couldn’t put together a rally over the final five innings and the squad took the loss.

Bakersfield won 19-6. Box Score

  • Juan Silva went 3-3, triple, 2 walks and 5 runs.
  • Zach Vincej went 2-5 with an RBI and 3 runs.
  • Jesse Winker went 3-3 with 2 walks, a steal, 2 HR (12), 6 RBI and 4 runs.

  • Juan Perez went 2-5 with a solo HR (7) and 2 runs.
  • Beau Amaral went 1-4 with a walk, steal, double, RBI and 2 runs.
  • Tim Adleman threw a shutout inning with a walk and a strikeout.

Game Notes

The Blaze brought out the bats in a big, big way on Wednesday night. Jesse Winker led the charge by reaching base five times, homering twice, scoring four runs and driving in six. Oh, and he stole a base. Marquez Smith also homered twice and drove in six runs. On any other night in history Juan Silva would have stood out for an incredible game as he reached base five times, scored five times and tripled, but incredibly that is overshadowed in this game.

Dayton won 4-0, 4-3 in a double header.

Game 1: 4-0 win. Box Score

  • Sammy Diaz went 1-3 with a run.
  • Phillip Ervin went 2-3 with a double and a run.

  • Jon Matthews went 2-3.
  • Joe Hudson went 1-3 with 2 RBI.
  • Carlton Daal went 1-3.
  • Amir Garrett threw 7 shutout innings with 5 strikeouts.

Game Notes

The story of the game was the start by Amir Garrett as he needed just 68 pitches to throw a complete game shutout with just three hits allowed while striking out five batters. Garrett took care of things on his end and the offense did their job as they scored in each of the first three innings to take a 4-0 lead that easily held up. Phillip Ervin, Tanner Rahier and Jon Matthews all had two hits in the game, while Joe Hudson added two RBI.

Game 2: 4-3 win. Box Score

  • Jon Matthews went 1-3 with a run and an RBI.
  • Daniel Pigott went 1-3 with a run.
  • Phillip Ervin went 1-3 with a run.
  • Tanner Rahier went 2-3 with an RBI.
  • Avain Rachal went 1-3 with a run.

  • Franderlyn Romero allowed 2 earned (3 total) in 5 innings with 3 strikeouts.
  • Scott Brattvet threw a perfect inning with a strikeout.
  • Alejandro Chacin threw a shutout inning with a strikeout.

Game Notes

Unlike the first game of the double header, the Dragons had to make a comeback as they were trailing 3-1 after four innings. Not to worry, the offense came through by plating a single run in the fifth inning as Avain Rachal scored on a Jon Matthews ground out to cut the Bowling Green lead to 3-2. In the sixth inning Dayton rallied as Daniel Pigott scored the tying run on a Tanner Rahier ground out that also moved Phillip Ervin to third. Ervin scored with Gabriel Rosa at the plate as the pitcher fired one into the backstop that gave the Dragons the lead after six innings. Alejandro Chacin came in for the seventh and faced adversity as he allowed three straight bloop singles to load the bases with one out, but he induced a double play to end the game and seal the double header sweep for Dayton.
