BILOXI, MS (Biloxi Shuckers) - For the second straight day, the Biloxi Shuckers (27-17) walked-off the Chattanooga Lookouts (28-16) to the tune of a 3-2 victory thanks to Mitch Ghelfi's tenth inning single on Sunday afternoon. The win sets up a rubber match on Monday night.
In the top of the third, manager Mike Guerrero was ejected after a play was overturned at first base. Brian Olson was initially called out after a groundball out but the umpires determined that Jake Gatewood's foot was not on the bag at first. After the ejection, Olson was retired as part of a double play, one of three the Shuckers' defense turned in the game.
LHP Nick Ramirez (W, 6-0) was lights out for a second straight game. The lefty struck out a pair in the top of the ninth and kept the bonus runner off the board in the tenth frame. With Tanner English at third in the tenth, Ramirez fanned Olson and Ryan Walker to send the game to the bottom of the inning.
Looking for a second straight walk-off, Trent Grisham bunted bonus runner Clint Coulter to third which brought up Ghelfi. Facing RHP Ryne Harper (L, 0-1), the Shuckers' catcher battled back from an 0-2 count to bring the count full. A sharp ground ball inside the bag at first rolled into right, and Coulter came home to hand the Shuckers the victory.
