While tonight’s game may not have had as many runs – and definitely not as many hits – as Thursday night’s slugfest in Batavia, the Doubledays were still able to make due with the three runs they pushed across. A two-run sixth inning was all Auburn (7-6) needed to best the Muckdogs (6-7) and improve to a 6-1 home record with a 3-1 win.
“Yesterday’s game was almost four hours, today’s was 2:20 or whatever it was,” said Doubledays manager Jerad Head. “When you come up on top it makes it a little easier.”
Andrew Karp – the Nationals’ sixth round pick of this year’s MLB draft – was phenomenal in his first taste of the New York-Penn League. He allowed just one hit in the first inning and exited the game in the second with two punchouts under his belt.
