(Abstract Available Here)Rocks unravel in seventh inning, fall to LynchburgSantiago struggles with off-speed pitchesBy ALEXANDER PYLES The News Journal July 14, 2008LYNCHBURG 6, BLUE ROCKS 2WILMINGTON -- Blue Rocks pitcher Mario Santiago isn't going tooverpower many batters. When he's been successful this season, hehas needed control of his fastball, curveball and change-up.Santiago only had control of one of those pitches Sunday afternoon ina 6-2 loss to Lynchburg -- his fastball -- but for the first six innings, heheld the powerful Hillcats offense in check.It was the seventh inning that was the problem.Down 2-1 heading into the seventh, Santiago gave up back-to-backextra-base hits -- an RBI double to Miles Durham and an RBI triple toEddie Prasch -- and then allowed designated hitter Jared Keel to hit asacrifice fly to extend the Hillcats' lead.Santiago's final line read seven innings, six hits, five earned runs."I left a couple pitches up [in the seventh]," Santiago said. "I don'tknow. I tried to find the grip."Lynchburg (13-10) evened the four-game series at one game each,while Wilmington manager Darryl Kennedy wondered how to improvehis club'ssituational hitting."It's the same thing the last couple weeks," Kennedy said. "We haven'tbeen able to situational hit. We can't drive a run in from third base withless than two outs. It's just catching up to us."Adding injury to insult, right fielder Joe Dickerson left the game in thebottom of the fourth inning after injuring his throwing hand on a buntattempt. Kennedy said Dickerson's hand swelled up in the dugout, andhe was taken to the hospital for X-rays.
