BLUES BOUNCE BACK. WIN GAME 2.
June 25, 2015 - SAN LUIS OBISPO
by Andrew Mitchell
The San Luis Obispo Blues (16-5, 4-4) won game two of the three game set against the Southern California Catch (11-13, 6-7) Thursday night at Sinsheimer Stadium, 8-5, behind a four RBI performance from Oklahoma’s Quin Walbergh.
After having their seven game winning streak snapped Wednesday night, the Blues got down 1-0 in the first from a RBI double by Josh Rojas. That would be the Catch only lead of the game, but it wasn’t easy for the Blues the rest of the way.
Walbergh delivered his four RBI’s in the first four innings, with a two RBI triple in the second and two RBI double in the fourth. That would be the first of three, three run leads the Blues would hold in the game.
The Catch scratched one run in the fifth and another one in the sixth when an error on the Blues righty Jackson Sigman allowed Jeremy Barth to score from third. Sigman was one of the four Blues relievers to take the mound, backing starter Korey Anderson up for his second win of the year.
Anderson finished throwing five and 1/3 innings, allowing two runs (one earned) on four hits and struck out three.
Returning Blues player Ryan Long delivered a two RBI double to respond to the Catch run in the sixth and pushed the Blues lead back to three runs before the Catch would cut the lead to one again, this time off newcomer Chad Hockin in his Blues debut.
That would be the final run of the game for the Catch, and the Blues would make their last push scoring single runs in the seventh and eighth to give closer Adam Atkins three runs to work with. Atkins allowed two baserunners but struck out Barth to earn his second save of the year.
Losing pitcher was Southern California’s Dillon Miyashiro.
