Dogs Storm Back Twice, Sweep Doubleheader vs. Sioux Falls

September 9, 2020 - American Association (AA) - Chicago Dogs News Release

Rosemont, Illinois - The Chicago Dogs trailed 2-1 after four innings in game one of Wednesday's doubleheader. They fell into a 3-2 hole after five innings in the second game. Harnessing their comeback mettle, the Dogs roared back to win both games, sweeping Wednesday's doubleheader against the Sioux Falls Canaries.

In game one, K.C. Hobson hit a sacrifice fly to left field to score Michael Crouse, tying the game, 2-2, in the fifth inning. One inning later, Edwin Arroyo crushed a two-out solo home run to lift the Dogs to a 3-2 victory.

In the back half of the twin bill, Chicago rallied for three runs in the bottom of the sixth inning to turn a 3-2 deficit into a 5-3 lead and eventual win. On a Michael Crouse grounder, a booted ball by shortstop Ryan Brett allowed Blake Allemand to score the tying run. The next batter, Joey Terdoslavich, banged an RBI triple to the corner to score Crouse and power the Dogs to a 4-3 lead. Roache then torched a run-scoring single to provide some cushion in the 5-3 win.
