Jeremy Beasley followed up his six shutout innings at Jacksonville on Tuesday with another six frames at Chattanooga on Sunday without allowing an earned run.
The former Toombs County Bulldog left the game with his Mobile Bears on top 6-2. Unfortunately, Beasley was denied a second straight victory as the Lookouts rallied scoring one run in the seventh and three in the ninth to tie the game and then a final run in the 10th on a walk-off single to center field by Brantley Bell to make it 7-6.
Jeremy allowed five hits and struck out four with three walks. Chattanooga scored unearned runs in the first and second. For the season he has a 3.40 ERA and a 2-3 record with 46 strikeouts and 23 walks.
With his four shutout frames against Chattanooga, this season 33-of-his-42 (78.6 %) complete innings have been shutout innings. For his career 139 of Jeremy’s 177 complete innings have been shutout innings for a percentage of 78.6%.
Jeremy faced six batters in the first inning. He retired the first two batters on four pitches- a ground out to second base and a three-pitch swinging strikeout.
A Lookout single was followed by a throwing error by Jeremy on a pickoff attempt and with the runner now on second base a second hit tied the game at 1-1. There was a second Mobile error by the shortstop and then the inning came to end on another three-pitch swinging strikeout.
In the second inning Beasley faced six more batters. Bell doubled to center and then after a grounder to third base, Jeremy made an error allowing Bell to score. A ground out to short, a four-pitch walk and a grounder to first wrapped up the second.
The third inning was much simpler. A walk on a 3-2 pitch was eliminated in a 6-4-3 double play and the third out was another ground ball to short.
The fourth inning was similar to the third. A ground out to third and a walk was followed by a double play on a liner to third and a throw to first to double up the runner.
In a four-batter fifth inning Jeremy induced a grounder to third, hit a batter, got a pop up to short and then a swinging strikeout.
In the sixth inning Chattanooga sandwiched a couple of singles around a strike out and fly out to left field. With runners on first and second base Beasley ended his night with a grounder to first.
