BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - The Blaze outhit Lancaster, six to four, but still couldn't muster up enough runs in the team's 3-2 defeat to Lancaster Monday night at Sam Lynn Ballpark.
Lancaster's Andrew Aplin supplied all the runs the Jethawks would need with his three-run homer to right off losing pitcher Jonathan Moscot (1-14) in the third inning.
The Blaze would cut that deficit to 3-2 when first baseman Steve Selsky hit his 11th of the season to center field.
However, Moscot would have more tough luck on the mound in spite of another strong effort. He walked two and struck out three in six innings to take yet another loss.
The Blaze hit the road Tuesday for six games, starting with a three-game series against Modesto and former Centennial High standout Dusty Robinson.
