Pedroza leads Loons into 2nd round play

While the AAA Isotopes were getting swept by the Redbirds the Loons enjoyed some late inning heroics by Jamie Pedroza to advance to the 2nd round. The Loons started off the game with the first ever lead off inside the park home run by Dee Gordon, and for six innings it looked like MVP Gordon would be the hero. However in the 7th his fielding error allowed the tying run to score and the game remained knotted at two until Pedroza hit a one out home run in the 10th to give the Loons a 3 - 2 lead. Saint Clair finished up his longest stint of the year by closing out the game in the 10th but it wasn't easy. He had two and one out but was able get a strike out  and pop out to end the game and advance to Loons into the 2nd round.

Ethan Martin started the game and pitched 4 2/3 innings of solid baseball. This was only notable because in this last seven appearances he was not allowed to pitch more then three innings and had not pitched more then three innings since July 27th. Martin was followed by Geison Aguasviva and Nathan Eovaldi who did their jobs. Then Saint Clair was asked to do more then he's done all year and he was upto the task with three scoreless innings to garner the extra inning victory. 

The Isotopes bats were silent during the three game series sweep by the Redbirds. Considering that Abreu/Paul/Hu/DeWitt are all supposed to have major league bats this swan song was disturbing.

Odgen now starts their playoffs tomorrow with Galvez/Ruggiano/Webster trying to win a Pioneer League Championship.
