Snodgrass finishes Richmond season with strong outing

richmond-squirrelsThe Richmond Flying Squirrels (70-71) prevented the Harrisburg Senators (76-65) from claiming the division title with a, 7-3, victory at The Diamond on Sunday afternoon.  Left-hander Jack Snodgrass was tremendous in the win, twirling eight innings in his final start of the year.

Ryan Lollis put the Squirrels in front as quickly as possible.  He led off the bottom of the first inning and launched a solo-home run to right field off Harrisburg right-hander Blake Treinen.  The eighth of the season for Lollis put Richmond in front, 1-0.

The Senators pulled even when they manufactured a run against lefty Snodgrass in the fourth inning.  Snodgrass walked Billy Burns to start the inning.  Burns stole both second and third base.  He scored to tie the game, 1-1, on a groundout from Steven Souza.

The home run for Lollis was the only hit allowed by Treinen in his five innings.  He did not factor in the decision, allowing the lone run, walking none and striking out seven.

Left-hander Matt Grace followed Treinen and didn’t record an out.  He walked Snodgrass to start the sixth inning.  A wild pitch from Grace moved Snodgrass over to second base and he scored to give Richmond the lead back when Lollis cracked a double into the left-field corner.  Grace uncorked a second wild pitch to allowed Lollis to third base and walked Joe Panik to put runners on the corners with nobody out.  He was lifted in favor of right-hander Neil Holland.  Javier Herrera knocked in Lollis with a fielder’s choice groundout.  Adam Duvall then crunched a two-run home run to center field to stretch the Richmond to 5-1.  Jarrett Parker sparked the inning anew with a single and Kelby Tomlinson punctuated the inning with an RBI double.

Grace (6-3) was charged with three earned runs and was tagged with the loss.

Snodgrass (12-4) was sensational in his final appearance of the year.  He worked eight innings and surrendered just two runs on six hits.  He walked one and struck out six to earn his 12th victory of the season.  The second run he allowed he allowed came in the eighth inning – his final frame.  Carlos Rivero supplied it with a solo-home run to left field.

Angel Villalona answered that home run with a much deeper one in the bottom of the eighth inning.  His titanic blast to left field capped the Richmond scoring for the afternoon.  Souza finished the scoring for the day when he homered to left field off Richmond closer Cody Hall in the ninth inning.  Hall finished the ballgame without further incident.

The final game of the 2013 regular season is scheduled for 12:05 p.m. on Monday afternoon at The Diamond.  Richmond LHP Ryan Bradley (0-6, 6.90) will make the start against Harrisburg RHP Robert Gilliam (3-6, 4.64).  The Flying Squirrels Pregame Warmup will begin on Sports Radio 910, www.sportsradio910.com and IHeart Radio at 11:35 a.m.
