Trey Supak got the San Antonio Missions started on a shutout in his first game at Wolff Stadium.

It still took a timely hit from Blake Allemand in the bottom of the 10th inning for the Missions to edge the Fresno Grizzlies 1-0 on Friday.

After nine scoreless innings of regulation and the Grizzlies coming up empty in the top of the 10th, the Missions only needed one run in the bottom of the 10th to finish the game.

In keeping with the extra-innings rules, the last batter from the previous inning started the 10th as a runner on second base. That was Jacob Nottingham. He advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt by Jake Hager.

That brought up former Boerne Champion star Allemand, a switch-hitter. Batting as a left-hander, Allemand hit the ball into left field to score Nottingham.

Supak was 11-4 in Double-A Biloxi this season. He picked up a win on the road in his debut with the Missions on July 27.

On Friday night, Supak pitched 6 2/3 scoreless innings. He allowed four hits with eight strikeouts and one walk.

Danny Coulombe was the first pitcher out of the Missions’ bullpen and he got the final out of the seventh inning.

Jimmy Nelson pitched in relief for the Missions for the second night in a row. He pitched a scoreless eighth inning and struck out the side.

Angel Perdomo (2-0) pitched the ninth and 10th innings to earn the win and finish the combined shutout. He allowed one hit, struck out five batters and walked one.
