SeaWolves swept for second consecutive series
The SeaWolves went winless on the road trip as they were walked off on in 10 innings on Sunday afternoon against the Richmond Flying Squirrles 5-4.
Erie got on the board in the top of the first inning against Richmond starter Chris Gloor. Eugenio Suarez singled and stole second. He scored on a two-out Tyler Collins double for a 1-0 lead.
Richmond promptly tied the game in the bottom of the first on a Joe Panik solo home run off of starter Kyle Lobstein.
Erie regained the lead in the second. Wade Gaynor snapped a four-game hitless streak with a double and he scored on a two-out Zach Maggard single for a 2-1 lead.
In the third, Collins and James McCann each singled with two outs. Gaynor followed and sent a bouncer to the bound that was misplayed by Gloor, allowing Collins to score making it 3-1 Erie.
The Squirrels again tied the game on a Mark Minicozzi two-run home run in the sixth.
The game remained tied until the 10th inning. With one out, Hernan Perez singled for his third hit of the game. With Daniel Fields batting, an errant pickoff throw to first allowed Perez to move from first to third. He scored on a Fields groundout for a 4-3 lead.
In the bottom of the 10th with one out, Ricky Opopesa homered off of Justin Souza, tying the game. With two outs, Jarrett Parker connected on the fourth Squirrels home run of the day, a game-winner over the wall in right for a 5-4 win over Erie.
Souza (3-1) blew his second save in as many chances allowing the two runs in the 10th.
