July 7, 2008 - United League Baseball (ULB) - Alexandria Aces News Release

Alexandria, La. - July 7, 2008 - The Alexandria Aces used late-inning heroics for the second-straight night to beat the Edinburg Coyotes 7-5 Monday night at Bringhurst Field. Tied 5-5 in the bottom of the eighth inning, with two out, Jose Umbria smashed the game-winning single to left to score two runs. With one out, Palmer Karr Jr. and Rafael Ozuna both walked to put runners at first and second. After Andre Marshall flied out to right, a wild pitch moved the runners to second and third. That is when Umbria laced a 1-0 pitch to left for the game-winner. Karr led off the game by hitting a three run homer in the first off the scoreboard in left to give the Aces an early 3-0 lead. In the fifth, Umbria had his first clutch hit when he singled in Ozuna to tie the game at four. With the score still tied at four, it looked like former Ace Robert Matlock was going to get his revenge on his old team. The Coyotes right fielder hit a solo homer to right, his first of the year, to give the Coyotes a one-run lead. The Aces tied it back up again in the bottom of the sixth when Selwyn Langaigne drove home Bryan Sabatella with a single up the middle. Eddie Fitzpatrick served as the Aces manager Monday as Ricky VanAsselberg was away watching his son play in a baseball tournament. The Aces and Coyotes will play the final game of this three-game set Tuesday as Chad Linder of Alexandria and Carlos Jan of Edinburg will square off. Game time is 7:05 PM.
