Ypsi baseball to avoid sweep at home tonight

The Midwest Sliders bats were stifled Wednesday night in a tough 3-1 loss to the Evansville Otters.

Despite many chances to put runs on the board, the Sliders once again couldn’t find the hit to ignite the offense.

Otters’ starter Stephen Brock went 6 1-3 innings giving up one unearned run. Brock (1-1) allowed four hits while striking out three.

The Otters (25-49) went up 2-0 in the third inning. Kenny Gilbert scored on a Frank Meade single after leading the inning off with a double to left. Gilbert and Meade would lead the Otters with three hits each.

The Sliders’ (38-39) lone run would come in the fifth inning. Newcomer Ryan Kennedy walked to start the inning, stole second and went to third on Brock’s throwing error. Kennedy scored on Lee Rubin’s groundout.

Kennedy went 2-2 with two walks in his Sliders debut.

Evansville would add an insurance run in the seventh inning to take a 3-1 lead off reliever P.J. Zocchi.

Nolan Shaffer suffered the loss despite going six innings and only allowing two earned runs. Shaffer (3-3) gave up five hits and had five strikeouts.

Midwest will look to avoid the sweep at 7:05 p.m. tonight at Oestrike Stadium. Tomorrow night, the Southern Illinois Miners will come to town for a three game set.
