Senators claw back for win

May 30, 2004 - Central Baseball League (Central League) - Jackson Senators News Release

Jackson, MS; May, 29 2004 – The Sports got off to a fast start tonight scoring 2 runs in the first inning, forcing Jackson to battle from behind for the second night in a row. Jackson scored a run in the 3rd to cut the lead to 2-1. The Sens continued to push runs across putting up one run in the 5th to tie the game. Shreveport answered with 2 runs of their own in the 6th inning, making the score 4-2 at the time. Jackson made it a one run affair with another run in the bottom of the 6th, when Al Corbeil scored on an error by Jose Gonzalez at short. Finally the Senators tied up the game when Selwyn Langaigne crossed the plate in the 8th on a Josh Tranum sac fly. With both teams stranding runners on base in the 9th, the game went to extra innings. Neither team could muster a run in the 10th, but the bats wouldn’t be quieted in the 11th. Shreveport went in order in their half of the 11th, and Jackson came to the plate in the bottom of the inning. A one out single by Tom Bost put him aboard; Drew York would come on to pinch run for Bost. Tyson Boston flew out to record the second out of the inning with Girard McCall coming up to the plate. Girard smashed a 2 out double to left-center field, scoring York from first and Jackson won by a final of 5-4. The win put Jackson at 11-10, and dropped Shreveport to 10-12. Tonight’s win by Jackson creates a rubber game tomorrow in the final game of the 3 game series. The Sens will send Nick Vandegriff to the mound as Shreveport will throw Josh Gold.

Next home game: Saturday, May 30th vs. Shreveport. 150 ft. Chocolate Sunday
