Seals Salvage a Game in Tucson

The Victoria Seals did in fact bounce back from their humiliating loss on Saturday night, knocking off the Toros 5-3 on Sunday to salvage a game from their three-game series.

Terry Mermer redeemed himself after a poor game in the field on Saturday. He went 2-for-4 with a homer and 3 RBI on Sunday to help the Seals break their five-game losing streak. Mermer now has 4 homers and 11 RBIs in only 38 at-bats with the Seals. He's batting seventh for the team, but he'll be moved up in the order if he keeps hitting like he has been of late.

Eduardo Baeza (2-7) earned the victory by pitching 1 1/3 innings of perfect baseball. Dane De la Rosa picked up his first save as a Victoria Seal by pitching a 1-2-3 bottom of the ninth inning. Starter Javier Garcia had a decent start, giving up only two earned runs in 6 2/3 innings of work. He gave up six hits, walked two and struck out three Toros.

The Seals return to RAP on Tuesday night with a 7:05 game against the Edmonton Capitals. Isaac Hess will be pitching on either Tuesday or Wednesday night, so be sure to come on out and cheer him on.
