SAUGET, Ill. — The Gateway Grizzlies posted only two hits Thursday night in a 1-0 defeat at the hands of the Lake Erie Crushers at GCS Credit Union Ballpark.
Gateway (6-6) has played deciding final games in three straight series, but has lost by one run in each of those three contests.
Max MacNabb (1-2) was fantastic: He tossed six innings, allowed only one run and struck out eight; the lefthander took the tough-luck loss. It was time in the three-game set that a Grizzlies pitcher posted a quality start and still left with a loss. Alec Kisena allowed only one run over six innings Tuesday night in an eventual 5-0 loss for the Grizzlies.
Lake Erie (8-4) scored on a fielder’s choice in the fourth.
