Suns Take Series Over The Blue Wahoos With 4-0 Win

April 30, 2012

The Blue Wahoos were blanked for just the second time this season as the Jacksonville Suns won the five-game set over the Blue Wahoo with a 4-0 series finale win on Sunday afternoon in Jacksonville.

Blue Wahoos starter J.C. Sulbaran (L, 1-3) got off to a fast start but ran into trouble in the fourth inning when he allowed a double by Shawn Bowman followed by a Taylor Krick single to start the inning.  Bowman scored on a sacrifice fly to center as he jarred the ball loose from Wahoos catcher Brian Peacock at the plate. Chris Gutierrez singled home Krick later in the inning putting the Suns up 2-0.

Sulbaran allowed another run in the fifth before exiting with two men out in the inning. The Suns tallied another run in the seventh against the Pensacola bullpen on their way to the series clinching win.

The Wahoos scattered just six hits against three Suns pitchers. Bobby Bramhall held the Blue Wahoos bats in check over the first four innings before giving way to Kyle Kaminska (W, 3-1) who earned the win with three shutout innings in relief.

Sulbaran took the loss after he was tagged for three runs on seven hits over 4.2 innings despite striking out seven in the game.

The Blue Wahoos are off on Monday before opening up a five-game homestand with the Jackson Generals on Tuesday night at Pensacola’s multi-use stadium. Tuesday is a Team Tuesday with select players signing autographs on the concourse prior to the game. First pitch is set for 7:00 p.m. with gates opening at 5:30 p.m.
