Wilmington, Delaware– Garrett Hiott hit his second home run of the year as the Bowling Green Hot Rods (14-8) lost in 10 innings to the Wilmington Blue Rocks (11-11), 3-2. The Hot Rods and Blue Rocks continue their six-game series at Daniel S. Fawley Stadium on Wednesday with a 5:35 PM CT first pitch.
The Hot Rods powered the first run of the game on the board thanks to their nine-hitter in the third. Hiott led off the frame against Wilmington starter Mitchell Parker, with the lefty hitter breaking a scoreless tie on a 407-foot homer. Hiott’s second of the season gave BG a 1-0 lead.
In the sixth the Blue Rocks plated two runs to take the lead, but the Hot Rods tied the game in the eighth. Hiott led off the inning with a single to left and went to second when Alika Williams was hit by a pitch. With two outs and Hiott at third, Diego Infante grounded into a force play but Williams got into a rundown, taking away the opportunity for an inning-ending double play and allowing Hiott to score. It stayed 2-2 until the 10th when a passed ball and a sacrifice fly scored the game-winning run, propelling Wilmington to a 3-2 walk-off win.
Trageton lasted 5.0 innings, allowing two runs on six hits with two walks and six strikeouts in a no-decision. Addison Moss threw 2.0 scoreless innings with a strikeout.
