After outscoring the Stars by a combined score of 26-4 over the first two games of the series, the Stars were able to exact some revenge Wednesday, defeating the Barons by a score of 8-2 in front of 4,101 fans at Regions Field.
The Stars scored early and often, getting a pair of runs in the second on a solo home run by Mike Walker and an RBI single by Hector Gomez against starter Stephen McCray (7-6, 4.36). The lead would balloon to 8-0 as McCray surrendered six runs in the fourth highlighted by a two-run double by Rene Tosoni and a two-run single by Brock Kjeldgaard.
McCray took the loss in his worst outing of the season, allowing eight runs on eight hits and walking six over just 3.2 IP.
The Barons were able to get on the board with a run in the 5th against Stars starter Taylor Jungmann (8-6, 3.60) on a Dan Wagner RBI single, but the day belonged to Jungmann who held the Barons to just one run on five hits over 6.0 IP.
The Barons tacked on a final run on a Miguel Gonzalez RBI hit in the 8th but it wasn't enough as the Barons fell by a score 8-2.
With the loss, the Barons fell to 48-30 and 4-4 in the second half while Huntsville improved to 31-45 and 2-6 in the second half.
The Barons will look to pick up a series victory tomorrow as LHP Spencer Arroyo (5-4, 3.46) takes the hill against RHP Brooks Hall (0-1, 10.13). First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 PM CDT.
