Around the Web: Outlaws top Rex in extras

By Todd Golden, Special to the Tribune-Star

TERRE HAUTE — The formula for extra innings for the Terre Haute Rex is simple. If the day ends in a “y” you have a good chance to see free baseball at Bob Warn Field.

Tuesday’s game against Nashville was no exception. The Outlaws forced extra innings with a two-run ninth inning and the game was decided in the 13th when Nashville broke through for an 11-9 victory in a game that lasted 4 hours, 41 minutes and which ended at nearly midnight.

It was the eighth extra inning game played by the Rex at Bob Warn Field this season.

The loss hurt the Rex in the Prospect League Central Division race. The Outlaws, who recently passed Richmond for second place, pulled to within two games of Terre Haute. The Central Division second-half champion earns a playoff berth.

Regulation baseball featured three lead changes in two ties. The Rex led 2-0 after the first. Chris Carlson doubled home Kyle Burnam and Carlson scored on a double play groundout.
