More Miner Miracles

MARION, ILL, August 23, 2009

Southern Illinois Miners won a remarkable fourth straight game in walk off fashion Saturday night at Rent One Park. The Midwest Sliders of Ypsilanti came from behind in the ninth to tie the game, but lost it in the 10th inning 5-4.

Midwest scored three runs between the third and fourth innings which was highlighted by a Jonnie Knoble two-run single. Southern Illinois held a 4-3 lead all the way through the eighth inning.

Scott Van Es started for the Sliders and threw six innings allowing four runs and didn’t earn a decision. He gave way to P.J. Zocchi who pitched the 7th, 8th, and 9th allowing only two hits.

The Sliders were down the their last out in the ninth when Robbie Knapp singled driving in Zack Pace to tie the game up, forcing extra innings.

When Zocchi came bout out in the tenth inning he couldn’t record a single out. The leadoff man tripled, which was followed by a walk off single to end the game.

Miners will look to extend their winnings steak to six games and get the sweep against Midwest Sunday at 6:05 p.m. Nolan Schaffer will take the mound for the Sliders.
