ATLANTA – Danny Payne had a game-high three hits and pitched 2.2 scoreless innings to earn the save while leading the Gold Team to an 8-3 victory in the second game of the Gold & White World Series Tuesday afternoon at Russ Chandler Stadium. With the win, the Gold Team evens the three-game series at 1-1, with the deciding contest to begin at 4:15 p.m. Wednesday.
Starter Tim Ladd earned the win for the Gold Team, giving up three runs on just five hits while striking out three in 4.1 innings of work. David Duncan took the loss, giving up four runs on eight hits in 4.2 innings.
Second baseman Jeff Ussery led the White Team with two hits.
The Gold Team took a 3-2 lead in the bottom of the second inning. Jay Dantzler walked to lead off the inning, advanced to second on a wild pitch by Duncan, and came around to score on a single up the middle by Plagman. A double by Feltes moved Plagman to third, and he scored on single by Haniger before an error plated Feltes to conclude the scoring in the inning.
Michael Klindt helped the White Team tie the game at 3-3 in the fourth inning when he singled up the middle, stole second and third, and scored on an error.
The Gold Team broke the tie with a single run in the fifth on a bases-loaded fielder’s choice by Matt Harper before adding four runs in the sixth for the final 8-3 margin.
