Wahoos And Smokies Suspended In Fifth

May 24, 2018

Wednesday night’s contest between the Blue Wahoos and the Tennessee Smokies has been suspended due to rain. The Smokies led the Wahoos 3-0 before play was halted.  Play will resume Thursday at 5:05 p.m. prior to Thursday’s regularly scheduled game.

Eddy Martinez reached on an error to start the third inning and scored on a Trevor Clifton double which gave the Smokies a 1-0 lead. A two-run homer in the fourth from Yasiel Balaguert brought us where we are at now with the Wahoos down 3-0.

Prior to first pitch, Pensacola native and Pro football Hall of Famer Derrick Brooks was announced as a co-owner of the Pensacola Blue Wahoos. Masters champion Bubba Watson formally introduced Brooks during the ceremony. Brooks and Watson echoed Quint Studer’s vision of improving the quality of life in Pensacola.

In game two of the series, right-handed pitcher Keury Mella (4-2, 2.25) will start for the Wahoos against Tennessee right-hander Duncan Robinson (1-1, 3.83).
