Jaxx Blow 5-0 Lead, Rebound to Win in 13

The Diamond Jaxx improve to 4-1 after hanging on in 13 innings from Riverwalk Stadium. The Jaxx blew a 5-0 lead but for the second time in the series pull out a win in their final at bat. The game took 4:05 minutes to play and 12 pitchers were used.

After a leadoff base hit by Ezequiel Carrera and a walk by Adam Moore, Jaxx right fielder Greg Halman (2) hit a tape measure blast to left to start the scoring 3-0.

In the top of the third, Carrera would lead off the inning with a single, steal second and score on an RBI double by Oswaldo Navarro (2). After a strikeout of Johan Limonta, Jaxx cleanup man, Adam Moore hit a double off the center field wall to plate Navarro and put the Jaxx up 5-0.

Diamond Jaxx starter Luis Pena would leave the game in the third inning due to an injury and be relieved by right hander Patrick Ryan.

The Biscuits would score four runs in the fourth off of Ryan. Paired with two walks, an RBI ground out by Desmond Jennings, and then a two RBI double by Biscuits short stop Brandon Chavez would pace the Biscuits in the inning.

The Biscuits would tie it up in the bottom of the seventh inning. After Rashad Eldridge reached on a drop third strike, Cesar Suarez lined a double down the left field line scoring Eldridge from first.

The Jaxx would threaten in the top of the ninth inning. Singles from Brent Johnson, Erick Monzon and Ezequiel Carrera could not produce a run.

In the top of the 13th, Adam Moore singled to right with one out in the inning. Greg Halman hit a line drive that got stuck above the padding out in center field wall for a ground rule double. Jeff Dominguez would walk to load the bases. Javier Brito hit a line drive to right scoring Moore from third giving the Jaxx 6-5 lead. Jaxx right fielder Greg Halman was ejected after arguing that he was safe at the plate on the play.

Mumba Rivera (2-0) picked up the win for the Jaxx, pitching three scoreless innings, striking out four. Mike Wlodarczyk (0-1) takes the loss for the Biscuits.

The Diamond Jaxx will start a five game series with the Jacksonville Suns on Monday night at 6:05 CDT. RHP Robert Rohrbaugh (0-0, 3.86) will take on LHP Graham Taylor (1-0, 4.50) in the pitching matchup on Tuesday night.
