Cheetahs Bats Crush Mammoths
CRESTWOOD, IL - The Cook County Cheetahs reached a season high in runs scored and tied their season high in hits with a 14-5 win over the Kenosha Mammoths today.
The Cheetahs matched their season high of 18 hits, set on Saturday night against the Mammoths, as they improved their record to 24-23. The Mammoths (24-20) gave up hits to every Cheetah batter except one, as Stuart Rykaleski had his second straight four-hit game, and Warren Gaspar (3), Ryan Larson (2), Mack Paciorek (2), Chuck Van Robays (3) and Adonis Smith (2) all had multiple hit games as the Cheetahs touched up the Mammoths pitching staff throughout the game. The Cheetahs scored in every inning except the 7th.
Winning pitcher David Campos (3-4) pitched five innings, with Dan Wells completing the game to earn his first save of the season. Kenosha starter Brett Livingston (2-4) took the loss.
"This is the kind of offensive club we thought we had earlier in the year," said Cheetahs Manager Mike Moore. "We need to sweep these guys tomorrow and get ourselves into second place before the All-Star break. The guys did a great job all around today, we'll try to keep it going."
The Cheetahs take on the Mammoths again Monday at 7:05, their last home game before the All-Star break. The Frontier League All-Star Game will be played Wednesday at 7:05 in Gateway.
