Jacks End Final Homestand with Sweep of Strykers; Playoffs Start Saturday

August 6, 2015 - Texas Collegiate League (TCL) - East Texas PumpJacks News Release

The Jacks' final regular-season home game didn't lack for drama. It didn't lack for a home team win, either.

Stellar pitching and clutch hitting both played a part in the East Texas Pump Jacks 3-1 victory against the Woodlands Strykers on Wednesday.

Franklin Miller went the distance for the Pump Jacks, pitching start to finish while holding the Strykers to just one run. It was the fourth time this summer that Miller went at least six innings in a start and allowed one run or fewer.

While Miller was busy stymying the Strykers' offense, the Jacks were having offensive issues of their own. Luckily for the Jacks and the spirited crowd, Anthony Donovan was in the lineup. The Chandler-Gilbert freshman scored or drove in each of the Jacks' three runs on the evening.

Donovan helped put the first run of the game on the board when he drew a walk to start the bottom of the first. He moved to third on a single by Mason Mallard, and came around to score when Dylan Mecham grounded out to short for a 1-0 Pump Jacks lead.

East Texas couldn't push a run across in the fourth despite have runners in scoring position, allowing The Woodlands to tie the game at 1-1 in the fifth on a pair of doubles.

The 1-1 tie held until the bottom of the seventh inning, when Donovan broke the tie with a bases-loaded double.

The Strykers retired the leadoff hitter, but Hunter Owens and Derek Clemons followed with a walk and single that put runners on first and second.

With the Jacks threatening to take the lead, The Woodlands called to the bullpen and Jack Mercer, who walked Aaron Clemons to load the bases.

Up came Donovan, who slapped a two-RBI double down the right-field line. Owens crossed the plate to give the Jacks the lead, and Derek Clemons followed close behind with an insurance run.

That was all Miller would need. The sophomore lefty coasted through the final two innings for his first complete game of the season.

Donovan led the offense with a hit, a walk, a run scored, and two RBI in four plate appearances. Mecham was 2-for-4 with an RBI. For the second-straight night, every Pump Jacks hitter reached base by a hit or a walk.

The regular season comes to an end when the Jacks visit the Brazos Valley Bombers for a pair of games Thursday and Friday.
