Twice in three days, Jake Hager stepped up to the plate with the game on the line.
Both times Hager came through with a hit that gave the San Antonio Missions a victory.
After producing a walk-off hit on Sunday at Wolff Stadium, Hager did it again Tuesday night.
This time Hager’s single in the bottom of the 10th inning gave the Missions a 1-0 victory over the New Orleans Baby Cakes.
Under the extra-innings rule, the Missions started the bottom of the 10th with Cory Spangenberg on second base. Nate Orf had a bunt single to advance Spangenberg to third. Jacob Nottingham got an intentional walk to load the bases.
That brought Hager to the plate. He responded with his 12th RBI of the season.
The Missions used five pitchers to combine for the 10-inning shutout. Aaron Wilkerson started and pitched five innings. Alex Wilson (1-0) pitched the top of the 10th inning and got the win. The Missions got the final two outs in the top of the 10th with a double play.
