July 4, 2004 - Central Baseball League (Central League) - Jackson Senators News Release

Jackson, MS; July 3, 2004 – In game 2 of the double header at Smith Wills Stadium, it took late inning heroics to give the Senator a 3-2 win over San Angelo Colts. Colts hurler Dave Therneau was smoking on the mound, starting the game with 13 Senators retired in a row while striking out 9 Sens in his outing. Therneau had his perfect game broken up on a single by Selwyn Langaigne in the 5th inning, but kept the lead going into the 7th. In Jackson’s final at bat, the Senators trailed 2-0 with Therneau taking the mound going for the complete game shutout. Erick Mejias led off the inning with a single, which was followed by a walk to Steve Newson. Josh Tranum then singled to score a run and cut the lead to 2-1. With nobody out, Jason Von Haefen came on for the save. Selwyn Langaigne put down a bunt and reached safely to load the bases. Randall Shelley then came to the plate and hit a sacrifice fly to center field, which scored Newson. After the throw was cut off, the ball was thrown to third as Nick Sorensen was trying to reach 3rd. The throw was misplayed by 3rd basemen Matt Sanchez and got away from him, allowing Sorensen to score the winning run. Jackson only had 3 hits in the game with 2 of them coming in the final at bat. Nick Vandegriff went 6 innings in the no decision with reliever Alexis Guzman claiming the win.
