Nine innings wasn’t enough for Akron yesterday, as neither team was able to put a run on the board in regulation.
With the new extra innings rules in place, both teams were able to score one run in the 10th inning, but in the decisive 11th frame, Nick Pasquale stepped up and struck out the side in the top half and Sicnarf Loopstok was able to secure a walk-off sacrifice fly.

Lynchburg Hillcats 0, Myrtle Beach Pelicans 5
Box Score · Hillcats fall to 23-20

No members of the Hillcats offense had a multi-hit game, a walk or even an extra base hit.
Lake County Captains 4, Dayton Dragons 5
Box Score · Captains fall to 20-26
