NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Doug Joyce's two-out RBI walkoff-single in the bottom of the seventh inning drove in Johnny Amann (Judson) propelled the Outlaws defeated Terre Haute 1-0 in Friday night's nightcap of the doubleheader. With the win, the Outlaws secured a playoff berth for the 2010 Prospect League playoffs.
Amann and Bryan Johns (Vanderbilt) drew one-out walks in the seventh before Joyce recorded the game-winning hit. It was only fitting that the team's RBI leader all season (Joyce) drove in the game winning run and arguably the biggest win of the year.
The Outlaws only had three hits in the nightcap after pounding out nine in the first game on Friday.
Joyce (Florida International), Kevin Smith (LSU-Shreveport) and Ryan McCauley all recorded hits.
Nashville starter PJ Francescon was terrific in game two, scattering just five hits in six shut-out inning. Francescon struck out fiveand walked four in the no-decision.
Navery Moore (Vanderbilt) struck out two in a rare one-inning of scoreless relief to earn the win.
The Outlaws will close out the regular season tomorrow as they travel to Dubois County to play the Bombers. Saturday's game will start at 7:05 p.m.
Depending on what happens in tomorrow's final regular season games, a win would mean the Outlaws would host next Monday's (Aug. 9) playoff game in Nashville.
