|HarbourCats bats in the Yakima Valley|
The Pippens were the ones pushing runs over at will tonight as they took down the HarbourCats in handy fashion with an 8-1 drubbing. Call it an ode to Brazil perhaps?
Like yesterday, Victoria got off to a good start, taking a 1-0 lead in the top of the second when Jake Lesinski cashed in Sean Watkins lead-off triple. Unlike yesterday though, that would be it for the HarbourCat offence as Yakima Valley pitchers would scatter only 6 more hits over the next 7 innings.
The Pippens put up the consistent scoring numbers on this night, scoring runs in the next 4 innings to take the 8-1 lead. Starter Alex Garcia lasted only 3 innings giving up 3 runs, to be replaced by Angel Delgado who gave up another 3 in a single inning of work, and Ryan Keller who gave up 2 in 3. The only bright spot on the mound was a scoreless inning of work from Carson Schneider.
Lesinski was 2-2 before being pulled, and Bryce Greager went 2-3 in a rare start at first. The first 5 hitters in the lineup went 2-19.
One more game in Yakima before a travel day home to prepare for a three game set against Medford back at RAP.
