Guedez, Bullpen Dominate the Drive in Tourists Victory

Asheville Tourists

The Asheville Tourists won their third straight road game on Friday, July 5, thanks to an outstanding performance from their pitching staff.

Jose Guedez spearheaded the Tourists effort from the mound in their 3-1 victory over the Greenville Drive.

Guedez went five innings, allowed only one run, and struck out eight. The right-hander did not factor in the decision; however, his effort kept the Tourists within striking distance. Asheville’s offense came through in the top of the seventh. John Garcia plated Austin Deming with a single into centerfield that tied the game 1-1. Anthony Sherwin later put the Tourists in front with a two-run Home Run to right field.
