'Dogs Late Rally Not Enough in Gary

September 1, 2019 - American Association (AA) - Lincoln Saltdogs News Release

GARY, Indiana - Josh Norwood allowed one unearned run over four innings in his first professional start, but the 'Dogs 9th-inning rally fell short in a 3-1 loss to the Gary SouthShore RailCats at U.S. Steel Yard on Sunday night.

Norwood's only run allowed came in the 4th inning after Andy De Jesus singled in Tommy McCarthy - who'd walked and reached second on an errant pickoff attempt.

Shairon Martis, originally scheduled to start, pitched three innings of relief and allowed one run - a 7th-inning double from Randy Santiesteban to score Colin Willis.

Jake Hohensee pitched the 8th and allowed an RBI single to De Jesus that made it 3-0.

The 'Dogs tried to rally in the 9th, facing Sandy Lugo for the second straight night. Ivan Marin led off with a walk and reached second on Forrestt Allday's groundout. Marin then scored when Ibarra singled to left, and Lincoln broke a 17-inning scoreless drought.

After Nick Schulz struck out, Josh Mazzola walked before Randolph Oduber's strikeout ended the game.

Allday singled with one out in the 4th - representing Lincoln's first baserunner of the game. Gary SouthShore starter Trevor Lubking allowed just two hits over six scoreless innings in his league-leading 24th start of the year.

The 'Dogs conclude the 2019 season in the finale on Monday. First-pitch time is scheduled for 1:10 p.m., and pregame coverage will begin at 12:40 p.m. on ESPN Lincoln 101.5 FM/1480 AM.

The Saltdogs are playing their 19th season in Lincoln. All ticket and promo information can be found at, and follow the 'Dogs on Twitter/Instagram @saltdogsball.
