BATTLE CREEK, MI — Charlie Rhee usually starts in the outfield for the Battle Creek Battle Jacks, with a few games at second base. But in Tuesday’s 11-1 loss to the Traverse City Pit Spitters, he featured at every position.

Rhee began the game in left field, worked his way through the outfield and infield, caught the eighth inning and eventually pitched in the ninth. He only surrendered one run in his inning of work.

Unfortunately, that was the bright spot for the Battle Jacks. Nate Blain dominated them in his six innings of work, and the Traverse City bullpen threw three hitless frames.

Meanwhile, Evan Orzech, Trey Truitt and Jacob Charon all recorded two-hit games for the Pit Spitters. Orzech and Charon added 2 RBI each, while Michael Tchavdarov drove in three.

The Battle Jacks (16-16) host the Kalamazoo Growlers in their home finale on Wednesday. First pitch is at 6:35 p.m. ET.
