Wednesday Pebble Report: Tri-City falls in second game of NWL playoffs

Tri-City, L 0-2
Can't really blame Wes Musick for this loss. Sure, the one hit he allowed was a solo home run in the fourth, but the offense just couldn't get it done. Kent Matthes's two doubles and Leonardo Reyes's single accounted for all three Tri-City hits.

Musick on the pitch and the series:

"I threw a pitch I knew he was going to hit. He did his job," said Musick, who delivered a 3-2 fastball right down the middle in the hope that pitcher-friendly Gesa Stadium would hold it and give his defense a chance to make a play. "Both teams are battling hard right now, back-and-forth. You've got to tip your hat to both sides."

Dan Perkins will start the third game for Tri-City.

Casper, L 2-4
Jonathan Vargas allowed an unearned run over the first two innings before giving way to Billy Vopinek. He served up a solo homer and struck out three over the next three innings. Ricky Testa allowed three more runs, and Trevor Gibson was the only starter to not allowed any runs.

Nolan Arendao and Juan Crousset each had two singles, but it was Crousset who drove in a run. Crousset also stole his first base of the season.
