Rogues Sweep Sox Again to End Road Trip
MARYSVILLE, Ca. - Medford native Cole Carder (University of Antelope Valley) was robbed of his third home run in two games, but he still went 3-3 with two doubles and two runs scored to lead the Rogues to a 9-6 victory over the Gold Sox to complete the sweep.
Mitch Neunborn (North Iowa Area CC) blasted off for his seventh home run of the season in the seventh inning. Neunborn now leads the Rogues in home runs despite having less than half the number of at-bats as Tommy Ahlstrom, who is second on the team with six.
Cole Elvis (UC Berkeley, 2019) hit a two-run home run in the top of the ninth inning. Both of his home runs have come at Colusa Casino Stadium. His first home run came in his first game as a Medford Rogue.
This is the second time the Rogues have swept the Gold Sox. The first time the Rogues swept the Gold Sox was at Harry & David Field from June 12-14th.
