Every night produces exciting finishes at the YMCA Sports Park and Monday night was no exception.
In the only 9-10 division game of the night, the Braves utilized a late-inning rally to outlast the Marlins 8-7.
TIGERS 6, RANGERS 5
Jonathan Lucas made the most of his first-ever mound performance to help lead the Tigers to a come-from-behind win. Lucas, whose better known for his expertise as a catcher, came on to relieve starter Markail Mitchell – who was injured on a play at the plate – and promptly struck out 10 batters, walked only four and didn’t give up a hit. Mitchell had yielded just three hits and struck out five in his time on the mound.
The Rangers took a 4-0 lead early, but watched as the Tigers chipped away at the lead and finally knotted the game at 5-all by the fifth. Lucas then came through at the plate, getting the biggest hit of the game to score Noah Morris with the winning run.
Lucas finished his amazing night with a 4-for-4 plate outing – which included a pair of doubles, a triple and two RBIs.
Duncan Brittain (RBI) and Jordan Williams (RBI) each contributed two hits, while Will Smith (RBI) and Austin Holmes added singles. The Rangers got singles from Drew Williamson and Landon Salter, while Hunter Brittain doubled.
BREWERS 9, ROCKIES 6
Jared Cooper notched his first win on the mound, but his second masterful performance for the Brewers. Cooper (1-0) struck out 12 in just over five innings and gave up just three hits and helped his own cause with a 3-for-3 effort at the plate, including a pair of RBIs.
After the Rockies took a 2-0 lead in the second inning, the Brewers answered with three runs in the bottom of the second and never trailed again. However, the resilient Rockies had runners on second and third and had scored three runs in the 6th when Christian Alvarez coaxed a line-drive out to end the threat and the game.
Along with Cooper, Tyler Hoomes added a pair of hits and four RBIs and Alvarez added a single and triple with an RBI. Brooks Brown and Joshua Winton contributed RBI singles, while Ethan Tyree had a hit as well. The Rockies were led by Christopher Gehman’s two hits, while Trippe Floyd added the other hit, a single, and scored three times.
BRAVES 8, MARLINS 7
After watching the Marlins run out to a 5-0 lead in the first inning, the Braves chipped away before scoring four runs in the bottom of the final inning to get the win.
Russell Smith came on in relief and over the final two and two-thirds innings struck out five to earn the win. The Marlins’ starting pitcher Andrew Etheridge struck out six and yielded just one hit in an impressive performance. All eight of the Braves runs came with the benefit of just one hit.
While Smith had the Braves’ only hit – a double – the Marlins were led by Cameron Pope’s 3-for-3 night at the plate. Keshan Patel added two hits and an RBI.
