A-Sun: Ground Rule Double Saves Jax Lead

By Bryan App - May 26, 2007

This doesn't seem very fair.

With two outs in the top of the sixth and Bradi Manifold on first, Matt Reynolds drilled a shot to the warning track in left field. With Manifold nearly at third, the ball got caught up in the tarp covering the outfield fence.

Reynolds was awarded second on a ground-rule double, and Manifold, who had crossed the plate for what would have been the game-tying run, had to return to third.

Packy Elkins then lined out to shortstop to end the inning. Jacksonville leads 3-2 going into the seventh.
