South Beach Express: Bad News for Zephyrs


by Mike Horst

The Zephyrs dropped a heartbreaker yesterday up in Metairie 3-2 in 13 innings to the Tacoma Rainiers. Rainiers’ top prospect, Nick Franklin, clubbed a solo home run off of Z’s reliever Jonathan Abaladejo in the top of the 13th for the winning run. Abaladejo got collared with the loss and saw his ERA tick up to a sky-high 8.04 on the season. Catcher Jeff Mathis, down from Miami on a rehab assignment, hit a homer of his own into left field in the 4th inning.

Our New Orleans Zephyrs have spent a lot of time outside of the Crescent City to start the season. Fourteen of their first twenty-two games in the 2013 season have been away from the Shrine on Airline, including all games since last Monday's home encounter. Most recently, the team finished up their most recent sojourn with a 5-3 loss in Oklahoma City on Sunday afternoon.
