The Otters gather after the final out was recorded.
05/05/2012 9:30 PM -
(PADUCAH, Kentucky) – In a scheduled 10-inning game, the Evansville Otters and Southern Illinois Miners finished in a 6-6 tie at Brooks Stadium.

Evansville trailed by a run until the top of the fourth inning when the Otter bats erupted. Outfielder Alex Foltz started the rally with a bunt infield single. Fellow outfielder Matt Sheely then drove home Foltz on an RBI triple to center field and second baseman Frank Martinez followed with another run-producing double. After taking the 2-1 lead, first baseman Nick Schwaner slammed a two run home run as the Otters tallied four runs in the fourth.

Down 4-1, the Miners surged to tie the game with a three-run bottom of the fifth inning.

Even at four, the Otters pushed ahead again in the top of the 8th. Evansville would score their two runs in an unorthodox manner as Southern Illinois made three errors in the inning and the Otters capitalized for a 6-4 advantage.

Southern would tie the game again in the bottom of the inning and neither team would score the remainder of the night as the contest ended in a 6-6, 10-inning tie.

First baseman Nick Schwaner finished 1 for 4 with a home run and three runs batted in. Outfielder Matt Sheely ended the day 1 for 5 with an RBI triple.

On the pitching side, Evansville used ten different arms during the game. Reliever Dan Marcacci (formally from USI) pitched 1 1/3, stranding four men on base. Kyle Barry also struck out the side in the 10th and Evansville native Adam Champion threw a scoreless 1-2-3 frame as well.
