Outlaws Beat River Rats 5-4.

The Nashville Outlaws took advantage of one really wild inning of Derek Grabner. The four-run third inning still wasn't enough though as it was Jarred Fancher's solo shot to left in the fifth that ending up as the difference in the 5-4 victory.

Outlaws starter Daniel Palo (2-2) went seven solid innings, but was still plagued by wildness as he walked five hitters and plunked another. Still, he kept his focus even after the team made two costly errors early on which resulted in three unearned runs. Matthew Fitton and closer Jon Ivie struck out two each and capped off another good pitching performance for the bullpen in the final two frames.

With a long roadtrip coming up, it will be important for the bats to come alive. There were signs tonight like Fancher's homerun and some hard shots off the bats of Brouillette and Amann that make you think that good things may be on the way.
