Results from the game played Tuesday, October 14th.
Starter Jaime Schultz could not finish the fourth, resulting in the Javelinas’ being shut out by the Desert Dogs, 9-0.
Schultz (TB) (L, 0-2) failed to impress for the second straight time, yielding three runs on three hits, two walks and a hit batsman in 3 2/3. The 23-year-old has given up eight runs in 5 2/3 over two outings. He fanned six.
The game remained within striking distance until two more Rays hurlers, Zach Cooper and Matt Lollis, combined for a six-run seventh that buried the home team. The Royals’ Miguel Almonte bridged the span between Schultz and Cooper, holding the opposition to a hit in 2 1/3 while striking out four. Colton Reavis (TB) and southpaw Sam Selman (KC) each tossed a scoreless frame.
What the pitchers gave away the bats could not recover, the Javelinas (2-3) managing just three hits and three free passes. Cody Stanley had one of those hits, a two-out sixth-inning single, to go with two fly outs and a 6-3 groundball out. The catcher was charged with a passed ball.
Second baseman Jacob Wilson was hitless in three at bats but reached on a fielding error in the second that occurred with two outs. Wilson took part in two double plays, the first 4-3 that doubled off a runner at first and the second a typical 4-6-3 one that reduced the damage in the seventh.
