Just a horrible game for Mississippi Wednesday night as the Diamond Jaxx pounded the Braves for 15 runs and 25 hits on their way to a 15-1 victory.
West Tennessee scored five runs in the first inning off Mississippi starter Ryan Basner, who pitched only three innings and saw his ERA rise to 7.92. Then the Diamond Jaxx scored eight runs on eleven hits (including two three-run home runs) off reliever Glenn Tucker in only 1.2 innings. Eric Schmitt gave up two runs in 2.1 innings, while Will Startup and infielder Josh Arteaga finished up the game with two scoreless innings.
Gregor Blanco got the only RBI for the Braves, while Barbaro Canizares was the only player for Mississippi with more than one hit. He had two and now has a .268 average.
The final game of the series is Thursday at 7:05. Matt Wright will go for the Braves, who are 12-21 on the season.
Frederick scored three runs in the first and three in the second inning to beat the Pelicans 6-2 at Coastal Federal Field.
Myrtle Beach lefty Matt Harrison had perhaps his worst game of the season, allowing those six runs on eight hits in five innings of work. Nick Tisone, just called up from Extended Spring Training, came in and pitched three scoreless innings, and David Watkins finished out the game with a scoreless ninth.
The Pelicans got their first run on a force out by Matt Young which scored Scott Schade. Then in the fourth Clint Sammons hit a solo home run, his third of the season.
Final game of the series will be Thursday as the Pelicans (17-16) send Jake Stevens to the mound.
Rome and Charleston were rained out Wednesday. They'll play a doubleheader starting at 6:05 Thursday at State Mutual Stadium.
The Braves, still 22-9 on the season, will send Beau Jones and Jairo Cuevas to the hill against the second-place Riverdogs.
