This is a news release from the Mississippi Braves
PEARL, MS -- Tim Adleman worked eight shutout innings, limiting the Mississippi Braves to just four hits as the Pensacola Blue Wahoos defeated the Braves 1-0 at Trustmark Park Saturday night. The series continues with game four of five Sunday at 5:00 PM.
Adleman (3-6) walked one and struck out five to pick up the win. Mississippi (1-2, 34-37) had five hits while Pensacola (2-1, 27-44) scored one run on 10 hits. Jesse Winker, Juan Perez and Kyle Skipworth all had two-hit nights at the plate for Pensacola. Matt Lipka was the lone M-Brave with a multi-hit game.
Pensacola scored the game's only run in the sixth. Jesse Winker walked and took second on a ground out. He then came in to score on a Juan Perez base hit to right field, putting the Blue Wahoos out front 1-0.
The M-Braves threated a few times but did not score. In the fourth, Mississippi put runners at the corners but could not score. In the bottom of the eighth, Eric Garcia singled and Sean Godfrey reached on a catcher's interference with two outs. A fly out ended that threat.
Matt Kennelly led off the ninth with a single to right. Rio Ruiz then drew a one-out walk but a game-ending double-play ended that threat.
Zack Weiss (S, 4) came on in the ninth to notch the save for Pensacola.
Jorge Reyes did not factor in the decision. He held the Blue Wahoos to six hits while fanning two batters in five innings of work. Mark Lamm (1-1) worked three innings in relief and took the loss. He gave up one earned run on three hits and a walk while fanning two. Francisco Rondon worked the final frame for the M-Braves.
The M-Braves send right-hander Tyrell Jenkins (4-5, 3.12) to the hill in game four of this five-game series. He'll counter Pensacola righty Robert Stephenson (4-6, 3.73). Sunday's first pitch is slated for 5:00 PM. Gates open at 4:00 PM.
