Celebrating their second Hispanic Heritage Day of the season, the Montañas arms were shredded by the Jumbo Shrimp's powerful offense.

Second baseman Calten Daal slapped a single to right scoring Stephenson as the Montañas trailed the Jumbo Shrimp by a run, 3-2.

But it was the sixth inning that really sunk the Montañas as they allowed an eight run inning.

The Montañas made a pitching change to right-hander Wyatt Strahan to begin the top of the sixth. The Jumbo Shrimp greeted him with six consecutive hits and three runs scoring before he would leave the game, and later the three runners he stranded on base all scored.

Jacksonville scored eight runs on nine hits in the top of the sixth inning to grow the lead to 11-2.

Chattanooga got a run back in the bottom of the sixth on an RBI ground out by Stuart Fairchild to cut the lead to 11-3.

Jacksonville responded with another run in the top of the seventh to make it 12-3.

The Jumbo Shrimp's final run came in the top of the eighth, with Seymour driving in his third run of the night on an infield RBI single to push the score to 13-3.

Manager Pat Kelly used infielder Bryant Flete to pitch the ninth inning. He gave up the two-run home run to Stone Garrett to put Jacksonville's lead at 15-3, which would be the final.
