Otters Denied Second Straight Comeback Win

The momentum from Saturday night’s walk off win was lost somewhere along the six hour bus ride from Evansville to Crestwood, Illinois, as the Otters fell to the Windy City Thunderbolts 6-4 Sunday evening.
The Thunderbolts dominated the first seven innings, taking a 6-0 lead while limiting the Otters to three singles.
Vinnie Scarduzio opened the scoring in the third inning with a solo home run to right field. The ‘Bolts would add three more in the fifth inning on a Gilberto Mejia RBI double and a two-run single off the bat of Guillermo Martinez.
The Otters nearly escaped the sixth inning unscathed, but a two out walk to Pete Paris was followed by an RBI double by Scarduzio and an RBI single from Wilson Matos.
The Otters mounted their near comeback in the eighth inning. Andre Liscinsky walked to lead things off and Javier Brown was then hit be a pitch. Cameron Satterwhite delivered an RBI single, plating Liscinsky from second. Eric Blackwell then walked to load the bases with no one out. Luke Hetherington flew out, but was followed with a bases loaded walk to Greg Alexander. With the lead cut to 6-2 and Frank Meade the tying run at the plate, Windy City turned to Nick Hall, the third pitcher of the inning. Meade hit a bloop single, scoring two runs to make it a 6-4 game. Meade took second base when the throw from the outfield went to third base.
With the tying runs in scoring position and one out, Tyler Diamond and pinch hitter Josh Howard struck out.
In the ninth inning Eric Blackwell grounded sharply to shortstop with a runner on to end the game.
Tyler Kelsey (5-4) earned the win, allowing only two singles in five innings. Kyle Dahman (0-1) took the loss in his first professional start. Dahman surrendered six runs in 5 and 2/3 innings. Dylan Axelrod closed the door in the ninth for his sixth save.
The Otters (17-41) will attempt to even the series at a game apiece Monday at 11:05pm CDT.
