TERRE HAUTE, Ind. -- Dylan Chisholm allowed just five hits over 7 2/3 innings, but two unearned runs that scored in the sixth inning led to a 3-2 loss for the Hannibal Hoots in a Tuesday night Prospect League game against the Terre Haute Rex.

Hannibal was leading 2-1 in the sixth with one out when Ashley hit a ball to Chisholm, who committed an error. Chisholm then hit Zach Milam with a pitch, and Jalbert Melo followed with a single that scored Ashley.

Nelson Muniz walked to load the bases, and Chris Whelan lofted a sacrifice fly to right field to score Milam to give the hosts their first lead.

Conor Stonebaugh then came in to pitch three innings of scoreless relief to earn the save for the Rex. He used just 21 pitches, allowing only a single to Alex Satunas to lead off the ninth inning. Pinch-runner Jose Mercado was moved to second on a sacrifice bunt, but Sam Nozicka flew out and Daunte DeCello grounded out to first base to end the game.

Hannibal scored in the first inning when Patrick Donohue led off with a single, stole second, moved to third on a fly ball and scored on Dylan Dodd's single to right field.

Dodd gave the Hoots their only other run with a solo home run in the fourth inning.

Drew Meschede, a redshirt freshman from Quincy University, allowed just two runs in six innings to earn the victory for the Rex.

With three games remaining in the season, Terre Haute now holds a 1 1/2-game lead in the West Division over Danville, which was idle on Tuesday.
