KODAK, Tenn. (July 15, 2019) - The Mobile BayBears, the Double-A affiliate of the Los Angeles Angels, exploded with five runs on eight hits in the final two innings of a 6-3 win over the Tennessee Smokies Monday night at Smokies Stadium.
Brandon Marsh led the BayBears (39-53 overall, 12-12 second half) with three extra-base hits and three RBIs. His solo home run with one out in the fourth inning was the first hit for either team. Marsh plated a pair of runs with his second double of the game in the eighth.
Jeremy Beasley 's scoreless streak was snapped after 18 innings on a Connor Myers home run in the sixth to tie the game 1-1. Beasley allowed just one Tennessee (42-52, 9-16) run on four hits in 5 1/3 innings, but he did not factor in the decision.
Luis Pena (2-0) gave up just one hit in 2 1/3 innings to earn the win, and Joe Gatto recorded his second save.
The BayBears tagged Allen Webster (0-1) for five consecutive hits in the eighth inning. Webster did not record an out, and the BayBears plated three runs to grab the lead for good.
