Wahoos Snap Skid with 2-1 Win in 10

Updated: Saturday, April 12 2014, 11:36 PM CDT
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WPMI) The Pensacola Blue Wahoos snapped their three-game skid with a 2-1 10 inning win over the Huntsville Stars on Saturday night in Huntsville. Rey Navarro provided what proved to be the game winner, with a solo home run in the top of the 10th inning with two outs.

The Blue Wahoos broke a scoreless tie in the top of the fifth when Juan Duran singled home Juan Silverio from second. The game stayed 1-0 until Mitch Haniger tied the game with a one-out solo home run off Drew Hayes in the bottom of the ninth. Later in the inning, Bryson Smith saved the game with a leaping catch at the wall to take, what appeared to be, a home run away from Adam Weisenburger for the final forcing extra innings.

Hayes allowed just a single in the 10th to shut down the Stars and earn the win despite the blown save. Jon Moscot pitched very well for the Wahoos in his second start of the season. He worked 5.2 shutout innings allowing just two hits and a walk while adding five strikeouts. He left the game early after back to back strikeouts in the sixth inning with a blister. Pensacola’s fifth inning run was the only blemish for Huntsville starter Brent Suter. He logged six innings allowing five hits with six strikeouts. David Goforth allowed the 10th inning homer to Navarro in his only inning of work to suffer the loss.

The Blue Wahoos will look to finish the series on a high note as they send RHP Michael Lorenzen (1-0, 0.00) against RHP Tyler Cravy (1-0, 0.00). First pitch is set for 1:00 p.m. before returning home to open a five-game series with the Montgomery Biscuits on Monday. The homestand opens with a Social Media Monday where fans have a chance to tweet their seats for a chance to win prizes.
