With a three-run ninth inning that broke a 2-2 tie, the Huntsville
Stars beat the Jackson Generals by a score of 5-2 on Sunday night at
Pringles Park. In the ninth, a two-run double by left fielder Lee
Haydel and an RBI single by center fielder Josh Prince was the
difference. On the pitching side, the Stars got another quality start
from RHP Hiram Burgos, who gave up two runs on seven hits through
seven innings while striking out eighth. Reliever Darren Byrd improved
to 2-2 on the season with the win after pitching a scoreless eighth
and Jesus Sanchez notched his ninth save on the year.
The rubbermatch of a five-game series will begin early on Monday as
the Stars will send RHP Jimmy Nelson (1-0, 5.40 ERA) to the mound to
square off against RHP Tijuan Walker (4-3, 3.79 ERA). First pitch is
at 12:05 PM.
