Terre Haute snaps off Danville win streak at 5

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. — It wasn’t quite a perfect week for Danville Dans manager Eric Coleman.

After seeing his team win five straight games, including C.J. Burdick’s no-hitter on Wednesday, Coleman’s squad ran out of offense on Sunday afternoon against the Terre Haute Rex.

The Dans, who had scored 42 runs in five straight victories to start the week, dropped a 2-1 decision to the Rex at Bob Warn Field.

Terre Haute’s Tommy Strunc, a right-hander from Creighton, allowed just one run on one hit in five innings to get the victory. Danville couldn’t take advantage of six walks issued by Strunc as Keith Shumaker drove home the team’s only run in the fourth inning. That gave Danville (6-6) an early 1-0 lead but that was it for the offense, as Terre Haute’s three relievers threw four shutout innings.

The Rex (7-3) scored single runs in the fourth and fifth innings against Dans’ starter Ben Braymer, who fell to 0-2 with the loss. Cayce Bredlau and Grayson Atwood had the RBIs for Terre Haute.

Burdick made an appearance in relief for Danville on Sunday, throwing three shutout innings, allowing two hits and striking out four.

With an off day on Monday, the Dans are back in action tonight with a 6:30 p.m. contest against the Springfield Sliders. It’s a two-buck Tuesday with $2 admission, $2 hot dogs, $2 soft drinks and $2 beer.

Corbin Olmstead is scheduled to get the start for Danville while Springfield will counter with right-hander Chance Simpson.

In other baseball news, the Danville Dans saw six former players selected in last weekend’s Major League Baseball Draft.

Bradley Roney, who played for the 2012 Dans, was an eighth-round choice out of Southern Mississippi by the Atlanta Braves. The next player chosen was Andrew Daniel out of the University of San Diego. The 2012 member of the Dans was selected in the 11th round by the Los Angeles Angels. Pepperdine’s Bryan Langlois, a 2011 member of the Danville Dans, was chosen in the 20th round by the Washington Nationals. In the 21st round, the Chicago Cubs picked Charlie White, a 2011 member of the Dans, from Maryland.

The final two players were both members of last year’s 41-win team for the Danville Dans. Miles Nordgren from Birmingham Southern was taken in the 23rd round by the Minnesota Twins, while Spencer Hermann from Fisher College was selected in the 36th round by the Seattle Mariners.
