Mound Presence

Webb got the start for Los Perros Calientes and was lights out to start only allowing three hits through the first five innings. Binghamton got two in scoring position with no outs in the sixth, but Webb escaped the jam striking out the next three. In total, the Akron left-hander tossed six innings allowing two runs while striking out eight. Jordan Jones allowed two runs over an inning pitched. Tyler Thornton and Trey Benton each tossed a scoreless inning.
