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.
