RubberDucks hang on for 5-4 win at Altoona
Funny thing in baseball. You never know when a one-run game is going to break out. That was the last thing the Akron RubberDucks were expecting as Friday night’s game with Altoona went to the bottom of the ninth with Akron holding a 5-1 lead in the series opener at People’s Natural Gas Field. Three singles and a two-run double later, the Ducks were clinging to a 5-4 lead with two outs and the potential tying run on third base. Closer Shawn Armstrong was summoned from the bullpen, and, after walking Stetson Allie to further complicate matters, he induced Mel Rojas, Jr. to fly out to left field, and end the nail-biter in Akron’s favor.
