The Bats didn't play last night because they had an off night, and there is no listed pitcher for tonight.
Jackson "Mississippi" Stephens had his good stuff on Thursday night when he stymied the Shuckers for 6 innings. Stephens only allowed a run, but it wasn't earned, with 3 hits, 0 walks, and 5 strikeouts. Matt "MaGoo" Magill continued with his comeback by striking out 3 in 2 scoreless innings, and Wandy Peralta struck out the side in the 9th. Alex "The Great" Blandino finally his keister in gear with a 3 for 4 night. Blandino smoked a solo dinger in the 5th and also hit a double with 2 runs scored and 3 RBI. Eric "Juggs" Jagielo hit a grand salami.
Pensacola plays tonight with Rookie Davis on the moud at 6:30 PM CT.
Tyler "Poppin'" Mahle had his first not so good start of the season. Mahle went 6 IP, 6 H, 5 R, 4 ER, 3 BB, and 5 K. He also gave up a dinger. Ismael "Call Me" Guillon and Greg Williams both pitched clean frames. Guillon struck out 2, and Williams struck out 1. Jonathan "Heynoso" Reynoso was 2 for 4 and Jimmy "Slim" Pickens was 1 for 3 with a walk.
Keury Mella will pitch tonight at 6:30 PM EST.
Jose Lopez took the mound for the Dragons and a decent night (5.1 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 2 K). Wendolyn Bautista would also pitch 2.2 innings of relief ball and give up only 1 run, 2 hits, 1 walk, and strike out 2. The Dragons are pretty bad, and that extended to their hitting tonight. They would scatter around 4 hits. Shed "Formerly Known as Shedric" Long hit a double and walked, and Mitch "Fallen" Trees had two walks.
