Trash Pandas fall to Mississippi, 3-1

Rocket City now outscored 18-4 in series

BOX SCORE

PEARL, Mississippi – The Trash Pandas dropped a low-scoring affair, 3-1, to the M-Braves on Thursday night at Trustmark Park.

It was a pitchers’ duel early on as Rocket City starter Mason Erla (L, 3-1) and Darius Vines (W, 5-4) were in cruise control to start, as the first four innings passed without a run on the scoreboard.

The M-Braves struck in the fifth with three runs on a walk and a two-RBI single from Justyn-Henry Malloy.

Vines recorded his second quality start in three outings, tossing six scoreless with five strikeouts allowing just two hits and giving up two walks.

Rocket City finally grabbed a run in the top of the seventh as a sacrifice fly from Kevin Maitan scored Ryan Aguilar. Despite runners on first and third with no outs in the inning, that would be it for the Trash Pandas’ offense on the night.

They threatened in the ninth inning and loaded the bases with one out, but Braxton Martinez grounded into a game-ending double play to give the Trash Pandas their fourth straight loss.

The bullpen put together a strong showing as Kolton Ingram, Aaron Hernandez, and Eric Torres combined for 3.1 shutout innings.

The first-half North Division Champion Trash Pandas (50-34 overall, 9-6 second half) continue their series with the Mississippi Braves (40-44 overall, 11-4 second half) on Friday night. First pitch at Trustmark Park is scheduled for 6:35 p.m. Josh Caray will be on the call for 103.9 FM THE UMP and 730 AM SportsRadio.
