Rox Drop Matinee 6-0 to Mankato
St. Cloud, Minn. - The St. Cloud Rox and the Mankato MoonDogs were back in action Wednesday for an afternoon game out at Joe Faber Field. The Rox fell to the MoonDogs by a final score of 6-0 to end their series together.
It was Youth Day at the ballpark presented by the Boys and Girls Club of Central Minnesota and the stadium was filled with kids of all ages enjoying some Rox Solid entertainment.
The game was all MoonDogs as they posted three runs in the top of the second for an early lead over the Rox. Two of the MoonDogs' runs came on a two run home run by left fielder Timothy Arakawa. Mankato would score another run in the top of the third taking a 4-0 lead over the Rox off a single.
Scoring was stagnant for a couple innings until Mankato took a 5-0 lead in the top of the sixth and then sealed a 6-0 victory over the St. Cloud Rox in the top of the ninth on a two out single.
Earning the start for the Rox on the mound was red-shirt junior Kyle Fischer (St. Cloud State University) pitching 4.1 innings and recording the loss. Fischer moves his record to 2-2 on the season. Reese Gregory (Fr., St. Cloud State University) and John Oltman (R-Fr., Creighton University) also saw some action in Wednesday's game pitching 1.2 innings and 3.0 innings respectively.
