Biloxi got in a three run hole early and couldn’t dig out of it, dropping game one of the series 4-3.
Marcos Diplan (17th) was charged with all the Blue Wahoos’ runs, after giving up one out back to back singles, then a home run to Brian Schales in the top of the first inning and then a sacrifice fly in the fourth. Johan Belisario and Luke Barker were amazing in 4 1/3 innings of relief, striking out seven batters without giving up a hit.
C.J. Hinojosa accounted for half of Biloxi’s hits, going 3-4 with a home run and double. Patrick Leonard added two more runs with his double in the sixth. Shuckers hitters struck out 13 times in the game.

Bowden Francis went five innings, allowing four runs while striking out seven. Christian Meister didn’t fare much better in his inning and a third, giving up two runs. Cody Beckham struck out three in his 1 2/3 inning.
