Blue Wahoos continue to battle down the first-half stretch

Jaylin Davis was calm this time. Almost in chill mode for the Pensacola Blue Wahoos.

Forget that he was at the plate in the 10th inning of a tied game against the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp last Monday at Blue Wahoos Stadium.

And forget it was a game Pensacola needed to win to stay in a two-team race for the Southern League South Division crown.

Davis delivered a double to center field that drove in the winning run in an 8-7 victory. Momentum swayed back and forth several times, keeping the fans within the crowd of 3,777 on the edge of their seats.

“This time I was pretty calm. (Manager) Ramon (Borrego) asked me how I felt, and I was like ‘I feel good.’ He said all right, go ahead and swing,” Davis said. “I got a pitch to hit and didn’t try to do too much.”

This was the second time the Minnesota Twins found himself in a position to cash in on a walk-off opportunity. He made the best of it the first time as well on May 19. That day he came through with a base hit in the 10th of a 4-3 win over Mobile.
