JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Stone Garrett homered on Sunday, but the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp fell to the Biloxi Shuckers 7-1 at the Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville. Fans enjoyed a Baptist Health Sunday Family FUNday on Mother's Day at the ballpark.
Jacksonville (13-24) starter McKenzie Mills (1-6) walked Luis Aviles Jr. with one out in the first inning. Jake Gatewood then blasted a two-run home run for the game's first runs. Weston Wilson immediately followed with a homer of his own to make it 3-0 in favor of Biloxi (18-19).
Garrett crushed a solo shot of his own to start the second inning to get the Jumbo Shrimp on the board.
With the score 3-1 in the fifth, Cooper Hummel led off the frame with another home run. The Shuckers added to their lead when Hummel was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the sixth inning, putting the advantage at 5-1.
In the ninth, Wilson drilled a two-run shot, his second round-tripper of the game and third of the series to extend the Shuckers lead to 7-1.
Biloxi starter Johan Belisario (2-0) yielded just one run on four hits in six innings to earn the win. He struck out four against one walk.
