Rex bats go silent against Dans

TERRE HAUTE — The Terre Haute Rex had only one inning — the sixth — when they manufactured the slightest bit of offense and that wasn’t enough to prevent an 8-2 loss to the Danville Dans in Prospect League baseball Monday night at Bob Warn Field.

Danville right-hander C.J. Burdick held the Rex hitless for 51⁄3 innings, then they rattled off consecutive singles by Ryan Sabo, Cayce Bredlau and Manuel De Jesus to produce the first run; Matt Chavarria lofted a sacrifice fly to right field to plate Bredlau with the second run.

Unfortunately for the home squad, Danville had tallied three runs in the second inning off Terre Haute starter Tommy Strunc. That outburst started when Tyler Selesky reached base on a throwing error and Derek Herrington reached on an infield single. One out later, Brett Nielsen walked to load the bases.

Cody Gardner of Terre Haute produced the first Danville run by getting hit by a pitch, then leadoff man Ronnie Jebavy did the same thing to bring home the second run. Austin Bryant followed with a walk — one of four issued to him for the night — to send home the third run.

Danville also answered Terre Haute’s pair in the sixth with five runs of its own in the top of the seventh.

After another Gardner hit-by-pitch to lead off the frame, the Dans’ big blows were a two-run double ripped down the right-field line by Keith Shumaker, a two-run single by Herrington (who finished with three of Danville’s seven hits) and an RBI infield single by Curtis Olvey.

The Rex threatened to score in the eighth, but a leadoff single by Rey Perez and a pinch-hit single by Zach Welz were wasted when a ground-ball double play ended the frame.

Terre Haute turned two double plays of its own earlier, and Rex center fielder Manuel De Jesus made a nifty running catch of a flyball in the sixth. So defense wasn’t a problem, despite the one above-mentioned error in the second inning.

Terre Haute (8-8) will play the second game of a five-game homestand tonight, starting at 7:05 against Springfield.
