Middleton singles to drive in a run
The Potters walkoff the Klamath Falls Gems to sweep the series. The Potters entered the ninth inning down 5-4. Jack Rotteveel lead off the inning by reaching first base after being hit by a pitch. Jacob Frederick followed with a walk. After the Gems recorded the first out of the inning, Grant St. Martin drove a ball up the middle to tie the game at 5. St. Martin tied the ball game up with a double in the Potters last walkoff win against the Seals. The Gems decided to intentionally walk Brian Morley, who hit a long homerun earlier in the game, and brought up Dylan Smethurst with the bases loaded and one out. Smethurst grounded into a fielder's choice that was originally ruled a double play. However, after a meeting between the umpires, Smethurst was ruled safe and the Potters won the ball game. The Potters improve to 6-3 including a 4 game winning streak while the Gems fall to 2-5.
Walker Dodero was the starting pitcher for the Potters and he went 5 and 1/3 innings allowing 5 hits, 4 runs, only 3 of them earned, and 3 walks. Tyler Gums made his first appearance of the season and got the win in the game. He fired a scoreless ninth inning walking 2 and striking out 2.
Charles Middleton went 2-4 with 2 RBI in the game. Joe Starick went 2-3 with an RBI in the game as well.
