Wahoos Drop Back-and-Forth Road Finale

July 15, 2024

written by Carter Bainbridge

The Pensacola Blue Wahoos (49-37) fell to the Rocket City Trash Pandas (43-43) in a tightly contested road series finale on Sunday afternoon.

Riding the momentum of six consecutive wins, the Wahoos took an immediate first-inning lead. A two-out fielding error by Rocket City left fielder Orlando Martinez opened the door for Pensacola designated hitter Zach Zubia, who belted his second home run of the series to put the Wahoos ahead 2-0.

Pensacola struggled for additional offense against Rocket City starter Chase Chaney, who settled into a rhythm throughout a four-inning outing. Meanwhile, the Trash Pandas chipped away against Blue Wahoos starter Jonathan Bermúdez (6.0 IP, 8 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 2 K). In the bottom of the third, a pair of Trash Panda singles and a passed ball set up second baseman Arol Vera, who hit a sacrifice fly to score center fielder Nelson Rada and cut the Wahoos’ lead to 2-1.

In the Rocket City fourth, two walks and a single loaded the bases for catcher Myles Emmerson, who swatted his second of four hits on the day to score two runs and give the Trash Pandas a 3-2 lead. Neither team would score again until the seventh when Pensacola third baseman Dalvy Rosario hit his first home run of the year off Rocket City righthander Brett Kerry (W, 1-0) to tie the game 3-3.

In the top of the ninth, Pensacola had an opportunity to take a late lead but stranded two runners aboard. In the bottom of the ninth, righthander Raffi Vizcaíno (L, 4-3) ran into early trouble. Rocket City third baseman Eric Wagaman led off the inning with a check-swing single into right, then advanced to second on a fielding error by Wahoos right fielder Jacob Berry. Right fielder Tucker Flint then reached base on a third-strike wild pitch. With runners at the corners and nobody out, Vizcaíno struck out the next two batters before allowing a walk-off single to Nelson Rada.

The 4-3 defeat snaps the Wahoos’ six-game winning streak and an 11-game winning streak at Toyota Field. Despite the loss, Pensacola ends the week with a 5-1 road series victory.
The Blue Wahoos return home on Friday, July 19 to face the Mississippi Braves. First pitch from Blue Wahoos Stadium is scheduled for 6:05 p.m.

Wahoos Explode in Extras, Win Sixth Straight

July 14, 2024

written by Erik Bremer

It took 11 innings, but the Pensacola Blue Wahoos extended their winning streak to a season-high six games with a 7-3 win over the Rocket City Trash Pandas on Saturday night.

The Blue Wahoos scored two runs in the tenth and four more in the eleventh to remain undefeated in extra-inning games, improving to a perfect 7-0 when playing beyond regulation.

The game began as a pitchers’ duel, as Rocket City’s Sam Bachman twirled 7.0 shutout innings and Pensacola’s Tristan Stevens countered with 6.0 innings of one-run ball.

On the strength of an Eric Wagaman RBI fielder’s choice in the sixth inning, Rocket City held a 1-0 lead until the eighth. Jakob Marsee began the inning with a single off reliever Eric Torres, then advanced to second before stealing third and scoring on a wild pitch to tie the game 1-1.

Anderson Pilar and Matt Pushard contributed scoreless relief for the Blue Wahoos to send the game to extras, where the Blue Wahoos immediately capitalized to take their first lead. Dalvy Rosario sent an infield chopper to first base, but an errant throw allowed a run to score. Marsee followed with an RBI single to bring home Rosario, putting the Blue Wahoos ahead 3-1.

On for the save, new arrival Woo-Suk Go (W, 1-0) struggled to protect the Pensacola lead. The reliever allowed an RBI double to Nelson Rada and a game-tying squeeze bunt to Mac McCroskey, but dug deep and struck out back-to-back batters with the winning run at second base to send the game to the 11th.

The Pensacola offense wasted no time in reclaiming the lead, as Rosario singled home the go-ahead run off reliever Brady Choban (L, 1-2). Marsee added a sacrifice fly before pinch-hitter Diego Infante singled home two more for a four-run inning and a 7-3 lead. Tyler Eckberg quickly dispatched the Trash Pandas in the bottom half to seal the sixth consecutive Blue Wahoos win.

The Blue Wahoos wrap up their series against the Trash Pandas on Sunday. First pitch from Toyota Field in Madison, Alabama is scheduled for 4:05 p.m.

Wahoos Launch Three Homers, Beat Rocket City For Fifth Straight Win

July 13, 2024

written by Erik Bremer

The Pensacola Blue Wahoos won their fifth in a row on Friday night, riding three home runs to a 9-5 victory over the Rocket City Trash Pandas.

Nathan Martorella opened the scoring with a second-inning homer, his second in as many games, and Sean Roby and Zach Zubia added blasts of their own in another dominant performance from the Pensacola offense.
Pensacola starter Luis Palacios (W, 6-5) surrendered a pair of homers to the Trash Pandas, but got through 5.0 innings of five-run ball to earn his team-leading sixth win.

The Blue Wahoos took the lead for good in the top of the fourth, when Roby went deep off Rocket City reliever Noah Owen (L, 0-1) in his Double-A debut. Zubia’s homer highlighted a six-run fifth inning, the biggest inning of the season for Pensacola and the turning point that allowed the Blue Wahoos to breathe easy the rest of the night.

Myles Emmerson jolted the Rocket City fans with a pinch-hit, three-run homer in the fifth off Palacios, but that was all the Trash Pandas could muster after Pensacola’s big inning. Justin King, Austin Roberts, Chandler Jozwiak and Raffi Vizcaíno combined to work 4.0 scoreless innings of relief to seal a 9-5 win.

The five-game winning streak ties Pensacola’s longest of the season, set most recently June 6-11.

The Blue Wahoos continue their series against the Trash Pandas on Saturday. First pitch from Toyota Field in Madison, Alabama is scheduled for 6:35 p.m.

Blue Wahoos Out-Blast Trash Pandas In 10-8 Win

July 12, 2024

written by Erik Bremer

The Pensacola Blue Wahoos scored a season-high 10 runs on Thursday night, and needed nearly every one of them in a high-scoring 10-8 win over the Rocket City Trash Pandas.

Eight different Pensacola batters scored a run, and eight drove in a run, helping the Blue Wahoos win their fourth in a row and improve to a season-best 11 games above .500.

The Blue Wahoos struck first in the second inning, turning a Zach Zubia walk and a pickoff error into the game’s first run on a balk from Rocket City starter Victor Mederos (L, 4-6). Harrison Spohn brought home Jacob Berry with a sacrifice fly to extend the lead to 2-0.

The Trash Pandas answered back with a pair of solo homers in the fourth from Eric Wagaman and Ben Gobbel. Blue Wahoos starter Patrick Monteverde (W, 1-0) surrendered a career-high four solo homers, but pitched into the sixth inning in his first start since his return from Triple-A Jacksonville.

The 2-2 tie was broken in the fifth, as the Blue Wahoos strung together five singles and two walks to take a 6-2 lead. Though Rocket City answered back with three of their own in the bottom of the sixth, highlighted by back-to-back homers from Gustavo Campero and Orlando Martinez, reliever Matt Pushard left the bases loaded to preserve a 6-5 lead.

Late Pensacola homers from Nathan Martorella and Joe Mack stretched the lead to 10-5, and that added cushion proved valuable as new arrival Woo-Suk Go struggled in his Blue Wahoos debut. The righty surrendered three runs in the ninth, including Wagaman’s second homer of the game, but got the job done to secure a 10-8 victory.

The Blue Wahoos continue their series against the Trash Pandas on Friday. First pitch from Toyota Field in Madison, Alabama is scheduled for 6:35 p.m.

written by Erik Bremer

Madison, Ala. – The Pensacola Blue Wahoos won their third in a row on Wednesday night, beating the Rocket City Trash Pandas 6-3 behind a strong start from Jeff Lindgren.

Lindgren (W, 1-0) turned in a quality start, allowing only one run on two hits over 6.0 innings to earn his first Double-A win since 2022.

The Blue Wahoos jumped ahead early against Rocket City starter John O’Reilly (L, 0-1), taking a 1-0 lead on a Paul McIntosh RBI single in the first inning. Sean Roby led off the second with a solo homer, and Joe Mack added a two-run single later in the frame to put Pensacola up 4-0.

Cody Morissette stretched the lead to 5-0 with a sacrifice fly in the fifth inning, and Dalvy Rosario tacked on an RBI single two batters later for a 6-0 lead.

Tucker Flint got the Trash Pandas on the board with a solo homer in the sixth, but it would be the only damage done against Lindgren. Rocket City put up a fight in the final two innings against the Pensacola bullpen, turning a Gustavo Campero triple and Orlando Martinez sacrifice fly into a run in the eighth, but Austin Roberts recorded the final four outs for Pensacola to seal a 6-3 win.

The Blue Wahoos continue their series against the Trash Pandas on Thursday. First pitch from Toyota Field in Madison, Alabama is scheduled for 6:35 p.m.

July 10, 2024

written by Erik Bremer

The Pensacola Blue Wahoos came to life late, scoring six runs in the final two innings to beat the Rocket City Trash Pandas 6-4 in comeback fashion on Tuesday night.

Jakob Marsee ignited a comeback with a two-run homer in the eighth inning, and Cody Morissette tied the game with a two-run blast of his own in the ninth. After an infield error kept the rally alive, Jacob Berry continued his hot streak with a go-ahead, two-run double with two outs in the ninth inning as the Blue Wahoos took the opener over the Trash Pandas.

Trash Pandas starter Chase Chaney scattered three singles over 7.0 shutout innings, and Rocket City held a 4-0 lead heading to the top of the eighth.

Adam Laskey (L, 3-3) escaped with three earned runs allowed on a season-high 10 hits over 3.2 innings in his start for the Blue Wahoos. In the first inning, RBI singles from Eric Wagaman and Tyler Payne put the Trash Pandas up 2-0. Nelson Rada added an RBI single in the fourth to force Laskey from the game, and Payne laced his second RBI single of the night off reliever Tyler Eckberg in the fifth inning.

Justin King, signed as a free agent by the Marlins last week, impressed in his Blue Wahoos debut with two strikeouts in a 1-2-3 bottom of the seventh inning.

The game was paused in the bottom of the eighth inning as intense rain moved through the area. After a 34-minute delay, the game resumed as Raffi Vizcaíno (W, 4-2) breezed through the eighth inning.

In the ninth, Zach Zubia led off with a double against Camden Minacci (L, 0-1) before Morissette hit the game-tying, two-run homer. A pair of outs followed before Diego Infante reached on a throwing error from first baseman Sam Brown to keep the inning alive. Joe Mack singled and Paul McIntosh walked to load the bases for Berry, who ripped the first pitch he saw into the right field corner for the game-winning two-run double.

Vizcaíno issued a leadoff walk in the bottom of the ninth, but buckled down to seal the Blue Wahoos win.

The Blue Wahoos continue their series against the Trash Pandas on Wednesday. First pitch from Toyota Field in Madison, Alabama is scheduled for 6:35 p.m.

The Pensacola Blue Wahoos split a doubleheader with the Montgomery Biscuits on Saturday night, falling 4-0 in game one but rallying to take game two 4-1 behind a dominant performance from Jacob Berry.

In game one, the Pensacola offense managed just three singles as Cole Wilcox (W, 6-2) outdueled Jonathan Bermúdez (L, 3-4) in a 4-0 final. The Biscuits took a lead on solo homers from Jalen Battles in the third and Carson Williams in the fourth, and added insurance on a Battles two-run single later in the inning.

In game two, Berry stole the show with a 3-for-4 performance. He opened the scoring with a two-run homer off starter Adam Leverett (L, 3-3) in the second, and added a pair of doubles as the Blue Wahoos won 4-1.

Tristan Stevens (W, 1-0) allowed just an unearned run over 5.0 innings to secure his first career Double-A win for the Blue Wahoos. Chandler Jozwiak worked a scoreless inning of relief to set up closer Austin Roberts (S, 15) for his league-leading 15th save.

The Blue Wahoos split their six games against the Biscuits, taking two of three in Pensacola before salvaging the final game of their series in Montgomery. They end a taxing stretch of 12 games in 12 days with a 6-6 record.
