Friday was the second straight night a Pensacola starting pitcher authored a scoreless outing against Jackson. On Thursday, right-hander Daniel Corcino, the Reds' No. 11 prospect, shut out the Generals for eight innings in a 3-2 win. Combined, Corcino and Moscot struck out 10 batters and held Jackson to seven hits and one walk in 15 innings.
