MADISON, ALABAMA - The Rocket City Trash Pandas could only muster seven hits against four Biloxi pitchers in a 5-0 loss Saturday evening at Toyota Field. It was the 10th time the Trash Pandas have been shutout this season and the fourth time in the last nine games.

The Shuckers picked up their first run in the second. Shortstop Eric Brown Jr. started the inning with a single, stole second, then scored on a two-out RBI single to center from designated hitter Zavier Warren.

Biloxi added three more in the third as with one out rightfielder Carlos Rodriguez walked, swiped second, then crossed home on an RBI double to left-center by third baseman Brock Wilken. Catcher Darrien Miller followed with an RBI double of his own to right center to bring in Wilken, then scored himself when first baseman Ernesto Martinez lined a single to right to make the score 4-0.

The visitors plated another run in the sixth after leftfielder Adam Hall singled, stole second, then scored on a double to left-center from centerfielder Dylan O'Rae. For the game, Biloxi registered six stolen bases.

That was enough for Shuckers starter Logan Henderson (W, 3) who tossed 5.1 shutout innings while allowing five hits, walking one and striking out six. The loss went to Rocket City starter Victor Mederos (L, 5) after he allowed four runs on eight hits over five frames with five strikeouts and four free passes.
