RAILROADER RALLY FALLS SHORT IN EXTRAS
 
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: July 31, 2018
CLEBURNE, Texas – Alex Polston went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles, but Cleburne’s 8th-inning rally fell short in a 5-4, 10-inning loss to the Sioux City Explorers at The Depot on Tuesday night.
Cleburne rallied for three runs off of the Sioux City bullpen in the 8th inning. Trevor Sealey drove in a run with an infield single before Chase Simpson added another with a fielder’s choice. Levi Scott then tied the game with a two-out RBI single to right field.
The Explorers rallied with one-out singles in the 10th inning before Shawn Blackwell’s wild pitch scored the eventual game-winning run.
Cleburne starter Dylan Mouzakes gave up the two runs just five days after giving up a season-high 10 runs to the Explorers in Sioux City last Thursday, but the Railroaders scored just one unearned run against Sioux City starter Justin Vernia in their 13th consecutive loss on Tuesday.
Cleburne rallied for three runs off of the Sioux City bullpen in the 8th inning. Trevor Sealey drove in a run with an infield single before Chase Simpson added another with a fielder’s choice. Levi Scott then tied the game with a two-out RBI single to right field.
Chase Simspon went 3-for-4 with a run scored, while Mike Gulino walked and scored his second professional run.
K.C. Huth went 1-for-4 with a double and a run scored, and Sealey’s RBI infield single extended his hitting streak to a season-high five games.
Game 2 of the brief two-game series is scheduled for Wednesday night at 7:06 p.m. Cleburne will send LHP Michael Gunn to the mound and the Explorers will throw LHP Ian McKinney.
Wednesday is also Wacky Wednesday at the ballpark, and fans are encouraged to dress up as their favorite superhero. Good seats are available and can be purchased at www.railroaderbaseball.com.
