Otters fall into second place

posted by Rich Miller

The Otters have lost four in a row and now sit in second place in the Frontier League West.

River City beat Evansville 10-5 in a game that was really never in doubt.

The Otters scored in the first and starter Justin Jordan mowed down the Rascals in the bottom of the inning, only to give up four runs on six hits in the third. Kyle Pawelczyk relieved him and gave up six runs on five hits in his only inning of work to put the game out of reach.

The Otters were dominated by Rascals' starter Chris Clem, who threw eight innings, allowing just five this while striking out 10. Evansville scored four in the ninth to make the final somewhat respectable.

The Otters return home Thursday night to face Rockford.
