A strong sixth inning rally for the Henderson Flash was the deciding factor in a home loss for the RiverDawgs on Tuesday, as they fell 13-6.

Despite Henderson getting on the board first in the top of the first with a run, Owensboro responded swiftly to claim the lead. It was an error and a one-out double for Daleen Adderly that got things going, before another error plated a run and knotted things up at 1-1.

The following at-bat the RiverDawgs got their first lead of the game, as Nicklas Williams doubled to center to make it a 2-1 game. Owensboro got an insurance run from an RBI groundout the very next at-bat, as Jake Allgeyer sent them into the second with a 3-1 lead.

Both teams added a run each in the third inning, but it was in the top of the fourth that the Flash put up a crooked number to take back the lead.  A leadoff single from Kyle Lavanchy followed by a hit by pitch and a RiverDawgs error, quickly loaded the bases with no outs.

After a strikeout, an RBI single from Ryan Dos Santos knotted things up at 4-4. Jeff Hoffman then gave Henderson a 5-4 lead with an RBI groundout going into the fifth.

Owensboro had the answer once again though, as Allgeyer came through offensively once again. With two outs and the bases loaded because of three singles in the bottom of the fifth, Allgeyer singled to left to score two runs and tak a 6-5 lead into the sixth.

However, Henderson bounced right back offensively though in the top of the sixth. It was a pair of singles, a walk and a hit by pitch that led to six runs and an 11-6 lead going into the bottom of the sixth.

This would kill all momentum for the RiverDawgs, as they were held scoreless for the remainder of the game. The Flash added two more runs onto their lead, as they went on to close the door on a 13-6 win.

Allgeyer led the way offensively for Owensboro, tallying three RBIs while EJ Clark followed with a pair and Williams had one. The RiverDawgs are now riding a four-game losing streak, as they will look to improve to 9-16 when they take on the Fulton Railroaders on the road at 7:05 p.m. on Thursday.
