Yahoos Nip Lookouts, 4-3, In 10 Innings

Thursday, May 16, 2013

The Pensacola Blue Wahoos extended their winning streak to a season-high three games in dramatic fashion, walking off over the Chattanooga Lookouts 4-3 in 10 innings on Wednesday night in front of 3,914 fans at Pensacola Bayfront Stadium.

Ryan LaMarre was the hero in Wednesday's contest providing the game-winning single that scored Bryson Smith from second. LaMarre was originally trying to lay down a sac bunt with runners on first and second, but slapped the single inside the first base bag with two strikes.

The Wahoos offense jumped out to an early start with two solo homers, one from Joe Mather in the second inning and another from Smith in the third. Both Mather and Smith finished with three-hit games as the Wahoos scored four or more runs for the fourth consecutive contest.

Much like last night, Chattanooga battled back and eventually took the lead in the later innings. Trailing 2-1 heading to the eighth, Omar Luna snuck a single through the middle of the infield that scored Yasiel Puig and Blake Smith to give the Lookouts a 3-2 advantage.

In the last of the eighth inning, Pensacola loaded the bases and knotted the game when Mather blooped a single into right for his second RBI of the contest. The Wahoos couldn't push across another run though as Jose Dominguez forced a fielder's choice from Travis Mattair and struck out Devin Lohman.

Aaron Miller (0-2) took the loss for Chattanooga by giving up a run on two hits without recording an out.

Memorial Auditorium Flag Disgrace

How can it be that Memorial Auditorium, which was built to honor soldiers and sailors, displays our country’s flag in such a disgraceful manner?  Out of six poles on the front of the building only two battered flags remain.  Additionally, two old banners are attached to the wall that have long ago faded and look like they’ve seen better days. This is not acceptable ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Buy Ping Golf Clubs

As we set the charcoal, ice the drinks and prepare for Memorial Day, the first thing on my mind is to ask any golfers within my reach to consider buying and playing with Ping-brand golf clubs. Pings are made in America but there is a little something else you need to know, as told in an email I received earlier this week. I regret I do not know the author: * * * “On Monday, ...
