Wild Things Even Series with Rain-Shortened Win
WASHINGTON, Pa. - Evansville had the tying run at the plate when the rain and storms came to Wild Things Park during the sixth inning of Wednesday's middle game, however, after a 46 minute delay, the game was called, with a final of 4-2, and the series is even.
The Wild Things started the scoring with a four spot in the bottom of the third inning, getting runs on a groundout by Ryan Cox, a two-run homer by Blake Adams and a run-scoring double by Hector Roa.
Evansville responded with two runs on a Ryan Long two-run home run in the sixth before the game was called with a 1-0 count to Rob Calabrese and a runner, Dakota Phillips on second.
Michael Austin gets the win after 5.2 innings of two-run ball, while Tyler Vail, who allowed four runs (two earned), took the loss for the Otters.
Left hander Austin Nicely (0-4, 12.50 ERA) will start the rubber game for Evansville tomorrow, while the reigning Frontier League Pitcher of the Week, lefty John Havird, goes for Washington. Havird brings a 3-2 record and 3.20 ERA to the start. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. at Wild Things Park.
