Warren Shines on the Mound, Rox Beat Honkers
Rochester, MN - Will Warren (Southeastern Louisiana) tossed 8.0 innings and surrendered just one hit while striking out eight batters in St. Cloud's (30-33) 2-0 win over Rochester. Ryan Weisenberg (Georgetown) paced the offense, going 3-4 at the plate while recording the lone RBI of the game.
The scoring began in the fifth inning, when Landon Stephens (Miami-Ohio) drilled a double into right-center field. Weisenberg later singled into center field and scored Stephens from second base.
In the seventh inning, it was Stephens scoring once again.. This time, he was brought home from third base on a balk call. Those two runs were all the scoring St. Cloud needed in the win.
Following Warren's eight shutout innings on the mound, Finn Del Bonta-Smith (San Jose State) earned his sixth save of the season. He struck out two batters in the ninth inning.
