Cougars Fall to Bandits in Return HomeMay 13, 2010 - Midwest League (MWL) Kane County Cougars
Starter Justin Marks (1-4), coming off his first victory and quality start of the season, suffered the loss. He gave up a first-inning run before settling down to retire 10 of the next 11 hitters. The Bandits managed two in the fifth against him and got a homer from Jason Stidham in the sixth to make it 4-0. Marks gave up the four runs on seven hits, walked two and fanned four. Bo Schultz erased a sixth-inning jam but then got touched for one in the seventh for a 5-0 score. Kyle Christensen posted two perfect relief innings in the stead of Schultz.
The Cougars managed just five hits in the game and fanned 11 times against a trio of Quad Cities pitchers. Shelby Miller (1-2) pitched 5 1/3 shutout innings for the victory. The Cougars' lone run came in the bottom of the ninth against Jesse Simpson when Nino Leyja singled home Anthony Aliotti for an unearned run.
The Cougars (17-17) and Bandits (21-13) continue the four-game series Friday night at 7 CT. Rob Gilliam (2-1, 2.87) is scheduled to face Joe Kelly (2-2, 2.96). The game will be broadcast on WBIG 1280-AM and online at www.kccougars.com, with pregame coverage starting at 6:45 p.m.
