With their ace unable to seal the deal in game 5, the Outlaws turned to 9 game winner Hiram “Colonel” Sanders to secure their place in history. Ottawa scored twice in the bottom of the second to take a 2-0 lead. 2B Sam Schoendienst (1-3, R) got things going with a 2-out single and subsequently stole second. SS Robin Scott (1-3, 2B, R, RBI) doubled Schoendienst in, and was then knocked in on P Hiram Sanders’ (1-2, RBI) single. 3B Reid Brooks (2-4, 2B, HR, R, RBI) provided the only real offense of the day for Seattle as he crushed a home run to right-center to lead off the fourth. The Pilots put men on the corners with two out in the fourth, but a groundout ended that threat. That was the extent of the scoring for Seattle . Seattle would threaten once more though, with a Randy Davies (1-3, 2B) in the 7th against Ottawa set-up man, Willie Molina (2.0, H, K), who went on strike out pinch-hitter Edward Cornelius and get Stretch Lloyd to ground out to SS Robin Scott who made an amazing play to nip Lloyd at first. Steve Hudek recorded the save with a perfect ninth. Despite striking out 6, Troy O’Donnell (6.0 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 6 K) was let down by the Pilots’ offense this game. Brandon Good pitched an inning, giving up 2 hits and a run in the bottom of the 8th and Nap O’Connor came in and stranded a runner in that same 8th inning.
OTTAWA WINS SERIES, 4-2.
CONGRATULATIONS TO OWNER mlhutch.
