Senators take advantage of Pelicans in 10, 5-4
JACKSON --- The Jackson Senators took advantage of plenty of Pelican mistakes Friday night in winning their first game of the year, 5-4 in ten innings. Two Pensacola errors and two Pelican wild pitches directly contributed to Jacksons scoring, including a wild finish in the tenth.
Erick Mejias drew a one-out walk from Santos Hernandez (0-1) in the bottom of the tenth for the Senators. After stealing second, Mejias scored the winning run all the way from second base when Vince Faison struck out and reached first on a wild pitch. Former USM pitcher Brandon Parker (1-0) got the win in relief.
The Senators continue their season-opening home stand by hosting Pensacola Saturday, May 7, at 7:05 p.m. for Fireworks Night sponsored by Pepsi and Jack-FM. Tickets are available by phone at 362-2294 or online at www.jacksonsenators.com. Fridays game can be heard on ESPN Radio 1240, WPBQ-AM, beginning at 6:50 p.m.
