Bowling Green, KY – Alejandro Segovia slugged his 12th home run of the season, but the Bowling Green Hot Rods (24-14, 62-46) fell to the Great Lakes Loons (17-21, 51-57) 9-2 on Wednesday night at Bowling Green Ballpark. Despite not allowing an unearned run, Hot Rods starter Jake Floethe received his second straight losing decision. The defeat is just the Hot Rods sixth in 20 second half home games.
After trailing for much of the early part of the game, the Hot Rods graced the scoreboard for the first time on Wednesday night when Alejandro Segovia smashed a long two-run home run. The bomb into the second tier of the Home Run Grill in left field came with one out after Cameron Seitzer began the inning with his second hit of the night. Segovia has now hit 12 homers on the season, which is good for a first-place tie with Jeff Malm among active players on the Hot Rods roster.
The Segovia longball was the only offense for the Hot Rods on Wednesday night, though. The contest remained close from the fifth through seventh innings as the Loons remained in their 3-2 advantage. However, Great Lakes broke it open in their last two innings at the plate, combining to score six runs over the final two frames to coast to the 9-2 win.
