PBL Scores, 8/27/16

A lot of late action in today’s games.  Don’t touch that dial; you might miss something…

JACKSONVILLE DRAGONS 8, JACKSON HAMMERHEADS 7

For a shining moment, it looked like the Jackson Hammerheads were about to gain a key game in their pursuit of a playoff spot after they broke open a tie game late.  But they wound up giving it all back and more in an 8-7 walkoff loss to the Jacksonville Dragons at Tesla Field.

“We had everything all lined up for us,” said Hammerheads C Clarence Doyle, “and we let it slip through our fingers.  This one hurts.”

Coming into the 8th inning, the game was tied 4-4.  Jackson pounced on Dragons reliever Rick Tomblin, tagging him for three runs to take a 7-4 lead.  But Hammerheads ace Henry Jones tired in the bottom of the inning, allowing 1B Miguel Soria to hit his second homer of the day, and the Dragons proceeded to tie it up against relievers Hilton Sircy and Bobby Boniface.  Then in the 9th, DH Sandy Soltero hit a walkoff single off of Boniface (3-6), who was charged with his seventh blown save of the year.

Jacksonville reliever Juan Pascos (3-1) recorded the final four out to get the win for the Dragons.

CALIFORNIA SHARKS 4, KALAMAZOO KAZOOS 3

After hibernating for the first 8 innings, the California Sharks saw their bats wake up in the 9th and rallied to shock the Kalamazoo Kazoos 4-3.

“Better late than never, I suppose,” said California manager Eduardo Aponte.  “I think it’s a testimonial to what a dangerous offense this is.  They can strike at any time.”

Coming into that final inning, Kazoos starter Zachary Barrett had a two-hit shutout in progress.  That changed quickly, as Sharks RF Jessie Corona and SS Rubin Smyth both singled before CF Justin Canales blasted a game-tying three-run homer to right center.  Barrett then gave way to closer Elias Rosado (6-5), who promptly allowed a go-ahead homer to LF Kenneth Mader.

California’s late rally got ace Pierre LaRue (14-4) off the hook after a respectable performance.  Closer Chris Lendon worked a drama-free bottom of the 9th to pick up his tenth save.

CAROLINA COMETS 6, KNOXVILLE SMOKIES 5

Today’s game at Catawba Century Field was a strange one: the Knoxville Smokies rallied from a 5-1 deficit against the Carolina Comets to tie the game in the 9th inning, only to lose 6-5 on a walkoff single in the bottom of the inning.

“I don’t know whether to [expletive] or go blind,” fumed Smokies manager Snuff Wallace.  “We had such a great rally that last inning, we had ‘em on the run.  Then we let it get away.  What the hell?!”

After being virtually silenced over the first 8 innings by Comets starter Randy Flats, the Smokies’ bats came to life in the 9th, largely against ex-teammate Jose Mariata.  But in the bottom of the inning, southpaw Jason Landau (5-3) walked Carolina 1B Pete Shives, then righty Rick Wilkins allowed a pair of soft singles, including the game-winner by pinch-hitter Lee Cosgrove.

Lefty Tom French (7-2) got the win after recording the last two outs in the top of the 9th.

LAS VEGAS NARWHALS 7, SILVER CITY OUTLAWS 4

Chuck Weaver has had a rough season for the Las Vegas Narwhals, but he delivered what the team needed today in a 7-4 win over the Silver City Outlaws.

Weaver (3-12) has won three of his last four decisions after starting the season 0-11.  Today the Narwhals righty looked brilliant, settling in after a shaky 1st inning and turning in a strong outing, striking out eight and scattering six hits over 7 innings.

“The first half of the season, I was a total mess,” said Weaver.  “But over the last few weeks I’ve been able to get my mechanics straightened out and provide some value to the team.  I’m glad for that.”

Outlaws lefty Pedro Rodriguez (13-6) had a rare rough outing, allowing six runs on 12 hits over 7+ innings.

Vegas closer Chris Allen allowed a two-run homer to pinch-hitter Carlos Barraza in the 9th inning, but managed to claim his 23rd save.

SALT LAKE SAMURAI 6, MILWAUKEE BEAR CLAWS 1

The Salt Lake Samurai got a strong outing from starter Tony Martin, and Milwaukee Bear Claws ace Lou Mallory moved to the brink of a 20-loss season after falling 6-1 to the Samurai at High Life Stadium today.

Martin (9-10) used his blazing fastball to great effect, striking out 11 Bear Claws over 8 1/3 innings.  He came within two outs of finishing the game, and within a Warren Stefani solo shot of firing a shutout.

“Tony’s still growing, but he’s definitely starting to figure things out,” said Samurai manager Johnny Dugan.  “If he gets a little more polish and consistency, he has a chance to be really special.”

Mallory (7-19) had yet another rough outing for Milwaukee.  Salt Lake broke the game open with a four-run 6th, with CF Daniel Slover’s three-run homer sending the Bear Claws righty to the showers.

ORLANDO CALRISSIANS 13, NEW ORLEANS SAZERACS 1

The Orlando Calrissians clubbed four home runs, setting the tone for a 13-1 slaughter of the New Orleans Sazeracs.

“We might not make it to the playoffs this year, but we want to finish strong and send a message,” said Calrissians 2B Jose Buendia, who went 2-for-4 with a grand slam.

In addition to Buendia’s blast, his 13th of the season, the Calrissians got longballs from RF Bart Law, 3B Fritz Elias, and C Herschel Lesher.  They knocked out Sazeracs starter Yu Chen (5-4) after only 3 1/3 innings.

Orlando ace Nathan Nunb (14-5) shut out New Orleans over his 7 innings of work while striking out nine.  Sazeracs LF Ezra Sisco singled in a run with two out in the 9th to break up the shutout.
