The Tennessee Smokies have won their last four games, winning last night 4-2 over the Pensacola Blue Wahoos at Pensacola Bayfront Stadium.

The Smokies have played solid baseball this season against the Blue Wahoos, going 5-1 in six games against Pensacola this season.

Tennessee has made several transactions before tonight’s game. Left-handed pitcher and former Smoky Chris Rusin is back with Tennessee and will start tonight on the mound for the Smokies. Also joining Tennessee is catcher Anthony Recker from Iowa, while right-handed pitcher Dallas Beeler was promoted to Iowa and infielder Elliot Soto was placed on the disabled list.

Tonight Tennessee will start Rusin against Pensacola’s right-hander Daniel Corcino. Corcino is 8-7 with a 3.06 ERA this season for the Wahoos.
