The Evansville Otters scored three runs in the top of the ninth inning to take the first game of the series 5-3 against the Midwest Sliders Tuesday night.

Sliders’ starter Mike Penn was great. Penn went seven innings only allowing one earned run on four hits while striking out six Otters.

Each team scored early in the first inning.

The Otters (24-49) took a 1-0 lead on Gregory Alexander’s single scoring Andre Liscinsky.

Penn would retire 15 consecutive Otters after the two first-inning singles.

The Sliders (38-34) would take the lead in the bottom half of the inning. Zack pace was hit with the first pitch of the game and Roberto Mena followed with a single. A passed ball allowed both to advance into scoring position. Pace would score on Joash Brodin’s single to shortstop and Robbie Knapp singled to left, scoring Mena.

Brodin knocked in Pace again in the third inning to make it a 3-1 ballgame.

Sliders’ closer Arshwin Asjes struggled in the ninth, allowing three runs on four hits and a walk to put Midwest behind 5-3.

Midwest threatened in the ninth, loading the bases with two outs. Unfortunately, they couldn’t find the hit to tie the game.

The second game of the series is 7:05 p.m. tonight at Oestrike Stadium.
