Rogues Leave 14 Stranded, Lose in Extras
MEDFORD, Ore. - The Rogues left 14 runners on base, including six in scoring position in tonight's loss to the Yuba-Sutter Gold Sox in 10 innings.
Starting pitcher Tanner Simpson (Lewis Clark State) struck out four over five scoreless innings but had to settle for the no decision.
Rogues first baseman Daniel Nist (Cal State Bakersfield) drove in the first and last runs of the game, an RBI sac fly in the second inning to score Blake Baumgartner (UC San Diego), and a game-tying RBI sac fly in the ninth to score Shea Scott (Daytona State College).
Josh Winkler (Folsom Lake College) started the game at third base for the Gold Sox, and then came on in relief to pitch the final three innings. He hit the go-ahead triple to score Mike Schoenberger and Elijah Smith, both unearned, in the top of the 10th inning.
The Rogues' 1-2-3 hitters combined to go 0-14 tonight.
