A Tuesday night pitcher's duel morphed into an extra inning thriller at MGM Park as the Biloxi Shuckers (6-6) walked off on the Pensacola Blue Wahoos (7-4) 3-2 behind Luis Aviles Jr's sacrifice fly in the tenth.
Deadlocked in a scoreless tie through nine innings, the Shuckers skidded to a two-run deficit in extras before the heart of the order rebounded to deliver 2019's first walk-off winner.
Held to just a single hit on the night, the Shuckers flipped the switch with the game on the line.
Aviles Jr. was the only batter to solve Pensacola starter
Both starting pitchers opened the night with three perfect innings and combined to allow just five base runners over the first six innings of the game.
The win evens the five-game series with Pensacola and pushes the Shuckers back to the .500 mark, two games back of the Blue Wahoos in the South Division. Biloxi's series with the Blue Wahoos continues on Wednesday night at 6:35 pm. RHP
