Drive Blank Intimidators, 2-0June 1, 2010 - South Atlantic League (SAL) Kannapolis Intimidators
Wickswat went 6.2 innings but took the loss as he allowed a third inning solo home run to Reynaldo Rodriguez to left and in the sixth inning he allowed Jeremy Hazelbaker to triple, who was brought in by a single from the next hitter Derrik Gibson. Wickswat allowed five hits and walked four with three strikeouts.
The Intimidators (26-26) couldn't get much going against the Drive (26-27) and when they did, they failed to push runners home in scoring position. The Intimidators went 0-for-6 with runners in scoring position as Kendal Volz (4-2) went five scoreless to start with five strikeouts and one walk. He was relieved by Jeremiah Bayer who went three scoreless and then closer Cesar Cabral struck out two in the ninth for his fifth save.
The Intimidators will look to get back above the .500 mark in a morning game on Wednesday at 10:05 am as Justin Collop will take to the hill, he will be opposed by Manuel Rivera.
