Beyond the Ninth

Asheville and Columbus took it into extra innings until finally the Tourists went down 6-3. It was looking sort of dire until the final inning and Carte, Van Kooten, and Paulk all got singles and evened things at 3-3. The 11th proved too much and they were not able to come back in their half of the inning. But today things could be different.

There were nothing but goose eggs on the scoreboard in TriCities. The Dust Devils never allowed anyone past second base. It is true that they used six pitchers and each one did an extraordinary job. Graham was most impressive. He should have earned himself another start. Repec stepped in and did another good job defensively.  Mayora seems to have the only hot bat on the club at the moment. In the 12th inning the Dust Devils came through with the winning run by Aguilar.  The POB has to go to Mayora who has a batting average of .302.  It is so nice to see us climbing up in the batting department.
