‘Winders top Memphis, move on to Nashville

Dave Krynzel and Mark Johnson blasted home runs in the top of the ninth inning to break open a close game as Tucson beat host Memphis 7-1 Friday night.

Tucson has won nine of its last 12 games. It marked the third straight series the Sidewinders have won 3-1.

Tucson is 2 1/2 games behind first-place Sacramento in the Pacific Coast League South Division.

Tucson reliever Chad Harville, who came on in the eighth to get the final out, was credited with his 14th save despite giving up a ninth-inning home run to John Rodriguez.

Casey Daigle (4-1) recorded the win in relief of Adam Bass, who tossed four shutout innings before exiting.

Bass was locked in a scoreless dual with Anthony Reyes before Tucson pushed across a run in the fifth. Reyes got himself in trouble by hitting Brian Barden with a pitch to start the inning. Barden moved to second on a sacrifice bunt and scored on Augie Ojeda’s single.

Tucson got to the Memphis bullpen in the ninth. Krynzel led off with his first home run of the season. After Danny Richar doubled, Jeff Salazar greeted reliever Ryan Meaux with a RBI single.

Chris Carter kept the rally going with a single before Johnson powered a three-run shot to right field to blow it open.

Tucson opens a four-game series at Nashville on Saturday. Game time is 4 p.m. The contest will air on 1450-AM.

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
