MONTGOMERY, Ala. - The Pensacola Blue Wahoos belted three home runs in a 7-2 win over the Montgomery Biscuits Wednesday night at Riverwalk Stadium in Montgomery, Ala. Jose Siri paced the Wahoos offense with 2-for-3 night including a grand slam in the second inning. It gave the Blue Wahoos a 5-0 lead, and Pensacola cruised the rest of the way.
Siri opened the game with a triple that almost got out of the park in the first inning. He scored on a Shed Long groundout to put the Wahoos ahead 1-0 in the first inning. It was one of two RBI for Long in the game. The other was on an opposite field home run in the third inning. Mitch Nay made it a 7-0 Blue Wahoos lead with a solo blast to left field in the fifth inning.
Daniel Wright (W, 4-5) made another strong start for Pensacola. He allowed just two runs over 6.2 innings with only one walk and six strikeouts. He earned his fourth win of the year. Biscuits starter Benton Moss (L, 1-3) was saddled with six of the Wahoos runs over three innings in his third loss of the year.
The Blue Wahoos have now won 10 of their last 11 games. Pensacola will try to make it 11 of 12 on Thursday night with RHP Wyatt Strahan (5-7, 6.33) on the mound against RHP Brandon Lawson (2-0, 5.49). First pitch is set for 6:35 p.m. from Riverwalk Stadium.
