HANNIBAL, Mo. -- The Hannibal Hoots ended the game with the bases loaded in a 2-1 Prospect League loss to Danville Sunday afternoon at Clemens Field.

The Hoots (3-8) scored their only run in the bottom of the ninth when Aaron Goecks singled home Josh Lane with the bases loaded and one out.

With the bases still loaded, Joe Roscetti popped out to first baseman Sky-Lar Culver. Pinch hitter Patrick Donohue then struck out swinging on a 1-2 pitch to end the game.

Danville starter Steven Washilewski retired 13 straight batters until Wyatt Whitman singled to lead off the fifth. The Hoots had only one more base runner before the ninth -- Roscetti, who singled to lead off the eighth.

Danville (6-5) scored both of its runs in the sixth when Drew Bianco doubled home Mateo Zunica and later scored on Culver's RBI single.

Dylan Dodd led Hannibal with two hits. The Hoots stranded seven batters. Three Danville pitchers combined to strike out 14 batters.

Hannibal starter Dylan Marble suffered the loss after striking out two and walking one in the first 5 1/3 innings. Quincy University product Brendan Saak allowed only one hit in the final 3 2/3 innings.

Hannibal plays the Dans again at 6:30 Monday at Danville.
