Calhoun's Walk-Off Sends Salt Lake to VictoryAugust 6, 2012 - Pacific Coast League (PCL) Oklahoma City RedHawks
With none on and two outs in the 10th, Calhoun took a 1-2 breaking ball that just missed outside the strike zone to even the count. He then sent the next pitch from Hector Ambriz (1-1) out of the park to right field to end the game.
The RedHawks led 3-1 in the seventh, but the Bees were able to rally with two to even the score. With runners at the corners, Ed Lucas sent a chopper over Mike Hessman's head at first that rolled down the right field line for a game-tying, two-run double.
With the game tied in the ninth, the RedHawks had two on with one out, but pinch-hitter Travis Buck hit into an inning-ending double play. Salt Lake pitcher Bobby Cassevah (2-1) went on to toss another scoreless inning in the 10th and ended up with the win.
Trailing 1-0 for most of the game, the RedHawks broke through the fifth. After they had none on and two out, Brandon Barnes singled. Jimmy Paredes followed with an RBI double on the ninth pitch of his at-bat to tie the game.
Salt Lake made a pitching change, replacing Jeremy Berg with Andrew Taylor. Fernando Martinez took Taylor's first pitch out of the park for a three-run homer to put the RedHawks in front 3-1.
The Bees took the game's first lead two batters into the bottom of the first. Ryan Langerhans led off with a double, and Calhoun followed with an RBI triple. RedHawks pitcher Ross Seaton did a good job to rebound and prevent Calhoun from scoring after he was at third base with none out.
The loss also meant Ross Seaton would not walk away with a victory. Making his second start with the RedHawks, and his first at Triple-A since April 22, Seaton allowed just one run and five hits over 5.1 innings. He struck out five, walked two, and retired 11 straight at one point.
The RedHawks face the Bees next at 8:05 p.m. central time Tuesday night. Live coverage begins at 7:35 p.m. on AM 1340 The Game, 1340thegame.com, or through the free IHeartRadio mobile app.
