Marauders Rally to Defeat Cubs 9-7
DAYTONA BEACH – The Marauders (58-49, 23-15) rallied from a 7-4 deficit in the eighth inning, plating five runs to defeat the Daytona Cubs (51-55,25-13) 9-7 on Wednesday night at Jackie Robinson Ballpark. The win ended a three game losing streak for the Marauders, snapped a seven game winning streak for the Cubs, and moved Bradenton to within 1.5 games of first place.
Seven of the nine Marauders starters scored a run in the game. Eight out of nine batters had at least one of Bradenton’s 13 hits. Adam Frazier went 2-for-4 with two doubles, two runs scored, and two batted in. His bouncing double into shallow center off Zack Godley (L, 3-2) plated the first two runs of the eighth inning for Bradenton. Walker Gourley followed with a two-run single to put the Marauders in front 9-7. Jose Osuna singled Gourley home later in the inning. Osuna finished 2-for-4 with two RBI, extending his hitting streak to nine games in the process.
The Cubs plated six straight runs in the sixth and seventh innings against Chad Kuhl and Joan Montero (W, 1-0) to erase Bradenton’s early 4-1 lead. Kuhl pitched 5 1/3 innings, surrendering six hits and three walks. Only two of the four runs allowed by the starter were earned.
Yhonathan Barrios picked up a six out save for the Marauders, his fourth in four opportunities. He struck out Billy McKinney and Wes Darvill with the tying runs on base in the ninth to secure the win.
