Young, Fox 0-4 at plate in Game 1 loss


Tribune Sports Reporter


IT was a disappointing start to the postseason for Lucius Fox and Chavez Young as both of their respective clubs suffered game one losses in their first round series.

Both players went 0-4 at the plate as their teams now face must-win situations in an attempt to stave off elimination.

Game two in both series took place last night, however results were unavailable up to press time.

Fox and the Montgomery Biscuits suffered a walk-off 4-3 loss in 10 innings to the Jackson Generals in game one of the Double-A Southern League North Division series.

Heading into the bottom of the ninth, the Biscuits had a 3-2 lead but surrendered an RBI single and a walk off walk to conclude the road loss at The Ballpark at Jackson in Jackson, Mississippi.

In the Single A-Advanced Midwest League, Young and his Lansing Lugnuts also trail in the series after a 10-inning loss at Cooley Law School Stadium in East Lansing, Michigan.

The Bowling Green Hot Rods emerged with a 4-3 win in a game that took just over three hours to complete and included a pair of rain delays.

The Lugnuts had previously rallied from 1-0 and 3-1 deficits, but were unable to rally in the bottom of the 10th inning.

The series now shifts to Bowling Green Ballpark in Bowling Green, Kentucky, for game two and a possible game three in the best-of-three series.

The Hot Rods need one more win to move into the Eastern Division Finals against the winner of Great Lakes/West Michigan.

Jazz Chisholm and his Visalia Rawhide will also begin their playoffs in the Single A-Advanced league this week. They will host the first home playoff game tonight against the Stockton Ports.
