Pensacola lost 5-4. Box Score

  • Ryan LaMarre went 3-4 with an RBI, steal (14) and 2 runs.
  • Didi Gregorius went 2-5 with 2 RBI.
  • Brodie Greene went 2-5 with an RBI.
  • David Vidal went 2-4 with a double.
  • PJ Phillips went 1-3.
  • Andrew Means went 1-4 with a run.
  • Chris Berset went 1-4 with a run.
  • Tony Cingrani went 1-2 at the plate. He allowed 2 runs in 6.2 innings with 2 walks and 5 strikeouts on the mound.
  • Chris Manno threw a scoreless inning of relief with a strikeout.

Game notes

Tony Cingrani left the game with runners on the corners with 2 outs in the 7th inning and a 2-0 lead, but the bullpen struggled over the final two innings as they allowed 3 runs in over the next 2.1 innings as well as two inherited runners to score. Cingrani threw 99 pitches in the game and most of them were fastballs. I will do a game review for him at some point next week after the draft talk settles down. Chris Manno has lowered his ERA to 2.61 on the season. Donnie Joseph had his second rough game of the season as he allowed 2 runs (1 earned) and saw his ERA balloon up to 0.93 on the season.

With the loss and a San Jose loss the Blaze stay in first place by half of a game.
