SLAMMER FALL TO GRIZZLIES IN 13 INNINGS

 

JOLIET, IL — The Slammers got a good outing from starting pitcher Matt Quintana, he went 5 2/3, allowing two runs and striking out six.

 

The Slammers took a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning thanks to RBI’s from Ridge Hoopii-Haslam and Tyler Coolbaugh.

 

The Grizzlies answered back with a run of their own in the top of the second inning on a bases loaded walk.

 

The Slammers added a run in the third and fourth innings on RBI’s from Cody Clark and London Lindley, making the score 4-1. That would be all they scored until the bottom of the thirteenth inning.

 

The Grizzlies were held scoreless until the sixth inning when they got an RBI single from Brent Sakurai. They then scored a run in the seventh and eighth innings to tie the game at four, thanks to RBI’s from Shawon Dunston and Matt McPhearson.

 

That would be the end of the scoring from both teams until the Grizzlies took a two run lead in the top of the thirteenth. The Slammers would add one more run in the bottom half of the inning, but it wasn’t enough as the Grizzlies outlasted the Slammers 6-5 in thirteen innings.

 

Today’s Merchants and Manufacturer’s Bank Player of the Game is London Lindley (3-7, 2 RBI, 3 SB).

 

The Slammers and Grizzlies will square off again Thursday, May 16th at 10:05. It will be the rubber match of this three game series.
