Tigers defeat IronBirds 1-0 in home finale

Rayni Guichardo earned the win Thursday

Despite getting outhit eight to four, the Connecticut Tigers won their final home game of the 2010 regular season Thursday thanks to excellent pitching and a timely sacrifice fly.

Tigers starting pitcher Rayni Guichardo and relievers Drew Gagnier, Logan Hoch and Miguel Mejia combined to shutout the Aberdeen IronBirds in the 1-0 victory.

Connecticut scored the game’s lone run in the first inning when P.J. Polk tagged up from third base on a shallow fly ball off the bat of Julio Rodriguez.

Aberdeen threatened to score in the later innings, loading the bases in the seventh and getting a runner on second base in the ninth, but failed to score on both occasions.

The Tigers will finish the regular season on the road with a three-game series against the IronBirds beginning on Friday.
