MOBILE, Ala. (September 3, 2017) - The Mobile BayBears, the Double-A affiliate of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, gave up just one hit after the sixth inning but were defeated by the Biloxi Shuckers 4-2 in 13 innings Sunday night at Hank Aaron Stadium.
After a game-tying RBI double by Troy Stokes, Jr. in the sixth, four Mobile (64-74 overall, 34-35 second half) relievers combined to hold Biloxi hitless for the next 7 1/3 innings. However, the BayBears only had one hit in that stretch and failed to score after plating a pair of runs on bases-loaded walks in the third.
Biloxi (70-66, 34-33) finally came through with a timely hit in the top of the 13th inning to break the 2-2 tie. With runners on second and third, Gabriel Noriega lined a two-out single to center field off Garrett Nuss (0-1) to plate a pair of runs.
Jorge Lopez (8-8) tossed three scoreless, hitless frames with three strikeouts to earn the win in relief. Matt Ramsey retired the side in order in the 13th to record his league-high 27th save.
