Rock Hounds Blow Late Lead

June 19, 2016

 

In a game that witnessed 19 total walks, the Rally Factory Rock Hounds still found themselves with a 4-3 lead with 4 outs left in the game. After a rough start by the Hounds starter, recent high school graduate Nathan Gutierrez pitched 3 2/3 innings of solid relief to keep Rally Factory in the game. Gutierrez, who was brought up from the Rock Hounds 18u team due to a continued skeleton crew, allowed only one run, while striking out 5 Wildcats hitters. The only run he allowed was a solo home run off the bat of Junior Jake Veasey. Veasey was the Cats key hitter, collecting 3 of the Cats 7 hits, including 2 RBI. It is impressive, since he has received less than 100 at bats at San Jose State, while hitting around .150 in his collegiate career.

 

Closer Jae Wagner, who just received a scholarship to play at Chico State, came in to pitch in the 8th inning with 1 out and runners on 1st and 2nd base. After a bobbled double play ball up the middle, Wagner struck out the Wildcats 3-hitter. On the first pitch to the hot hitting Veasey, Veasey hit a line drive right at the Rock Hounds center fielder. The would-be routine play hit right off his glove, allowing the Cats to score 3 unearned runs, and secure the victory. Wagner struck out 4 of his 5 outs. He still has not allowed an earned run, dating back to January 27.

 

The Rock Hounds will host Auburn tomorrow at 1:15pm at Yarbrough Stadium at Solano College. Jake Fromson (Missouri State) will start for the Hounds.
