TH tops Quincy: Tale of tape doesn’t tell winning story for Rex

TERRE HAUTE — The Terre Haute Rex game-winning hit on Tuesday against the Quincy Gems might have been the first tale of the tape where there was more tape inside the tape measure than there was on the field itself.

With one out and runners at the corners in a tie game in the bottom of the 11th inning, Rex designated hitter Derick Daniel hit a check-swing dribbler than didn’t travel more than 10 feet from home plate. However, Quincy pitcher Kevin Lee and catcher Brandon Miles both closed in on the ball ... and neglected to cover home plate. Ray Hernandez scored an easy game-winning run to give the Rex a dramatic 7-6 Prospect League victory at Bob Warn Field as 580 fans looked on.

The Rex improved to 3-2 and passed Danville for first place in the Prospect League’s Central Division. Danville, Richmond and Dubois County are each 2-3 and trail the Rex by one game.

The Rex persevered through a performance that wasn’t always pretty with the game on the line, particularly on the mound and in the field. Quincy scored a run in the bottom of the ninth to force extra innings and scored two runs in the top of 11th as a pair of Rex errors gave the Gems plenty of help.

But Terre Haute took advantage of Quincy’s mistakes to pull out the victory in the 11th. Alex Guthrie led off with a single and Alex DeLeon drew a walk. Hernandez was next and tried to sacrifice for both runners and put a good bunt down the third base line. Quincy third baseman John Lorenz threw wide of the bag at first and both Guthrie and pinch-runner Cooper Smith scored to tie the game.

Daniel got his chance two batters later. His initial reaction when his mis-hit the ball was that he blew a big opportunity.

“I was just trying to get ball up to drive it in, I knew we had some speed at third,” Daniel said. “It was one of those plays you don’t feel like it went your way, but you hustle it out and make something happen,” said Daniel, who plays at Texas Southern.

But Quincy’s faux pas on the field bailed Daniel and the Rex as they got a win right before a downpour would have caused a rain delay. Rex manager Brian Dorsett was happy the team was able to pull the victory out.

“The key is putting pressure on the defense. Ray [Hernandez] did that when he got the bunt down. We’re fortunate to win this game, but I love the fight we had,” Dorsett said.

The last innings were in contrast to a pitcher’s duel that dominated the first half of the game. Rex starter Chad Reeves and Quincy starter Steven Moranda battled through a 1-1 deadlock through five innings. Quincy scored the go-ahead run on in the sixth on an Andrew Host to make it 2-1. The Gems added another run in the eighth.

Reeves pitched 5 1/3 innings and allowed two runs on a day where he wasn’t the intended starter. Michael Hachadorian decided to sit out Tuesday’s game with arm tenderness.

Going into Tuesday’s game, the Rex had a 2.81 team ERA.

“I like our starting pitching they’ve done a great job so far. They want the ball and they’re ready,” Dorsett said.

Quincy stayed in front until the 8th. One-out singles by Nolan Earley and Kyle Burnam brought slugger Jase Morgan to the plate.

With a 3-2 count, pulled the payoff pitch over the left field fence for a three-run home run to make it 4-2.

“Jase is an accomplished college hitter. His numbers at Clarendon were huge. He’s going to New Mexico and he’ll be a big time run-producer there at high altitude. He’s squared the ball like that a lot lately. He hit one 400 feet at Springfield the other day. He loves being in that situation,” Dorsett said.

Closer Tyler Browning couldn’t hold the Rex lead as Cecil Richardson tied the game with an opposite field single in the ninth. Browning was still on the hill when Quincy scored two more in the 11th after Alex Jones reached on an error and after a throw to first by Browning on a Kurtis Lee sacrifice sailed over first base and into the right field corner, scoring Jones. A RBI single by Eric Aguilera knocked in Kurtis Lee.

The Rex play host to the Hannibal Cavemen at 7 p.m. tonight.
