Madison, Wis. – Dan Swain (Siena) homered, while Nick Medeiros (Santa Clara) and Mason Marshall (BYU) tossed scoreless innings in the visiting team’s 7-0 game-two win at the Big League Dreams Showcase. 

Swain recorded hits in each of his final two at bats of the game, including a solo shot. He finished the game with two hits, two runs, and an RBI. 

On the mound, Battle Creek pitchers preserved the shutout with a pair of solid performances. Medeiros forced two groundouts to begin his outing, then, after allowing a single, struck out Dane Hutcheon (Alexandria) to finish a scoreless eighth. Marshall continued the trend in the ninth, using three grounders and allowing just one baserunner on a two-out walk. 

Lin Li (Taiwan) also participated, hitting second for the visiting team and finishing his day 0-for-4 with a walk. 

These four Bombers will rejoin their teammates tomorrow in Mequon for game two against the Lakeshore Chinooks. First pitch is scheduled for 6:35 Central time at Kapco Park. 

The Battle Creek Bombers are a member of the finest developmental league for elite college baseball players, the Northwoods League. Playing its 22nd season of summer collegiate baseball, the Northwoods League is the largest organized baseball league in the world with 18 teams, drawing significantly more fans, in a friendly ballpark experience, than any league of its kind. A valuable training ground for coaches, umpires and front office staff, more than 120 Northwoods League players have advanced to Major League Baseball, including Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer (WAS) and MLB All-Stars Chris Sale (CWS), Jordan Zimmermann (WAS), Curtis Granderson (NYM), Allen Craig (BOS) and Ben Zobrist (OAK).
