SeaWolves Use Big Innings to Squeak Past RubberDucks 6-5

Akron, OH- The Erie SeaWolves continued their winning ways by defeating the Akron RubberDucks 6-5 on Saturday evening. Erie would utilize two innings of nearly batting around to do all of their damage.

The scoring got started early, with prized Guardians farmhand Chase DeLauter sending a single to left center, bringing Khalil Watson in to give the RubberDucks a 1-0 lead. They would hold that lead through the first 4 innings.

In the 5th, the SeaWolves sent 8 batters to the plate. A lead-off walk to Carlos Mendoza followed by back to back singles by Ben Malgeri and Daniel Cabrera got the scoring started, with Cabrera's single bringing Mendoza around to score. A suicide squeeze by 9 hole hitter Christian Molfetta would bring in run number 2, giving the SeaWolves a one run advantage. Gage Workman would tack on an RBI single to extend that lead to 3-1.

The RubberDucks would answer in the bottom half of the 6th when they would score 4 to retake the lead 5-3. The big play of the inning was 'Ducks shortstop Yordys Valdes sending a liner to right center that would bring in Aaron Bracho and Joe Lampe.

Following a quiet 7th inning, the SeaWolves would again use a big inning to retake the lead. Much like their rally in the 5th, Erie would string together multiple singles and a hit batsman to retake the lead. The inning was capped by an RBI double by Cabrera.

The Ducks would get a runner to 2nd in the bottom of the 9th before Andrew Magno would strike DeLauter out to end the game.

The RubberDucks will look to halt their 4 game skid on Sunday afternoon from Canal Park.
