Our team is still looking for their first road win of the season after playing four dismal games in Arizona this week. Friday's loss drops Victoria's record to 6-7 and they are now below .500 for the first time in 2010. The Scorpions, who had a slim 5-4 lead entering the bottom of the fifth, put the game out of reach by scoring 9 runs in that inning. The victory by the Scorpions was their eighth in a row.
Strandlund made the most of his opportunity. He retired the Scorpions 1-2-3 in the bottom of eighth, including a swinging strikeout of Bubba Garcia. On a night when Yuma clubbed 20 hits, Strandlund's inning on the hill was a nice silver lining.
Seal Blubber Bits
- Nick Martin gave up five earned runs in 2/3 of an inning to raise his ERA to a whopping 21.86.
- Jino Gonzalez gave up three earned runs in 1/3 of an inning and saw his ERA jump to a monumental 81.08.
- The Seals' team ERA now stands at 6.01. I wouldn't be surprised to see a roster move or two on the pitching side in the coming days.
