BMLN: Fisher Cats Lose Fifth Straight; News, Notes and Streaks for Monday's action down in the farm.
Doubledays Offense A No-Show
Dewon Day came in to relieve Trias in the eighth. Day made his first appearance of the season (due to injury) pitching an inning. Day gave up three hits and last of Renegades runs for the night. Day recovered well though pitching himself out of the jam by striking out the next two batters and ending the inning. Paul Phillips came out of the bullpen in the ninth to finish out the game for the Doubledays. Phillips made it a short appearance allowing only one hit and no walks with one strikeout.
The Doubledays problem tonight was still off the mound but now rather then in the field they struggled at the plate. They began strong with Nick Thomas leading off the bottom of the second inning for the Doubledays. Thomas blasted his third homerun of the season over the right field wall to start what seemed like a rally to answer the three runs the Renegades had tallied in the first. There was no such luck though as the next three batters all grounded out.
Things began to heat up for the Doubledays again in the following inning when Emmanuel Sena led off with a single to center and was followed by Sean Shoffit, who picked up a walk. Jermy Acey stepped up with things looking pretty good and he would put into motion the most impressive play of the night, unfortunately it wasn't for the Doubledays. Acey hit a line drive to Renegade shortstop, Neil Watson who would start a triple play! Watson went to first baseman Joshua Johnson who returned it to Watson, covering second. The Doubledays could never regain the momentum after that play.
Another noteworthy appearance at Falcon Park tonight, Kyle Bohm began the game as a starting catcher tonight, playing catch for only the second time this season. Bohm's time has been mostly in the designated hitter slot with a few recent appearances at first, in the absence of regular first basmen, Joey Metropoulos, who is out with a strained quadriceps. Bohm went five innings before being replaced by Brian Bormaster.
"He [Manager Dennis Holmberg] told me in advance that I was only going to catch four or five innings today," said Bohm. "He's just trying to get me in the games as much as possible and just try to work me in slowly and maybe eventually I'll be able to catch a whole game."
Tomorrow the Doubledays take on the Devil Rays #1 draft pick Wade Townsend in the second of the three game home series. Tune in to see if the Doubledays can end their four game losing streak and get back to .500.
