HIGHLIGHTS: The West Virginia Power dropped their second straight game to the Asheville Tourists, falling 10-6 on Wednesday evening at Appalachian Power Park.  All nine Asheville players had at least one base hit and six different players drove in runs.

The Tourists scored three in the first and one in the second off of West Virginia starter Quinton Miller, but the Power cut the deficit to one in the bottom of the third on three walks, a sac fly, and a triple.  In the fourth, Asheville would knock Miller from the game with two runs on three hits to build a 6-3 lead, which the Power cut to 6-5 with two runs of their own in the frame.

A two run sixth extended the lead again for the Tourists, and while the Power would get on back in the bottom of the inning on a ground out, Asheville would seal the win with two ninth inning insurance runs.

Miller (3-3) took the loss for West Virginia after allowing six runs on 11 hits.  Lueris Gomez (6-4) gained with win in relief.  The Power are now 30-9 when scoring six or more runs in a game this season.

West Virginia and Asheville play Thursday at 7:05 pm.  Jason Erickson will start for the Power against the Tourists’ Wes Musick.
