(EVANSVILLE, INDIANA) – First baseman Nik Balog collected a pair of doubles including a bases clearing two-bagger in the Otters 9-4 loss against the Gary South Shore RailCats on Wednesday afternoon.

There were 1600 local school children on hand for the Evansville Otters annual Kids Day game.

Chad James, former Florida Marlins first round pick, earned the start for Evansville. He worked around a walk and hit by pitch in the first inning to strike out three batters.

Gary South Shore started the scoring in the second inning with a Brooks Braga bases loaded walk and a two-run single from outfielder Josh Romanski.  

The RailCats added to their lead in the third, fourth and fifth innings to create a 9-0 lead.

The Otters took advantage of four walks in the fifth inning including a bases loaded free pass to infielder Josh Allen. Down 9-1, Balog then hit a three run double off the left field fence pulling the Otters within five runs.

There was no other scoring over the final four innings as Gary South Shore held on for the five run win.

Relievers Anthony Collazo, Chad Robinson and Orlando Santos combined to throw a scoreless three innings for Evansville. They reached five strikeouts in that time without giving up a single hit.
