A True Flock Farewell
The Larks defeated the St. Cloud Rox on Thursday, in their final home game of the 2021 season, 5-4. The game was presented by Townsquare Media and Cool 98.7.
Seth Brewer was dominant from the get-go. The righty went six innings allowing just two earned runs and four hits in his final start of the season. Brewer’s six strikeouts pulled him to 55 total strikeouts on his season – the most on the Larks. He was consistently hitting 92 mph on the radar gun for the Metro-Area Ambulance Fastest Pitch. Rox batters could not catch up to the heat.
In addition to the great pitching, the Larks bats broke out for ten hits. Of the strongest performances, Larks outfielder, Jaxon Rosencranz, went 3-4 at the plate. Rosencranz wrapped up the two-game series going a blistering 7-for-9 against the Rox.
Larks third baseman, Ethan Kleinheider, had a stellar game at the hot corner. Kleinheider made a diving grab to his left to rob Rox outfielder Nate Swarts of a base hit. The play was the Fetzer Electric Play of The Game and brought the Larks crowd to their feet in the home finale.
The Larks wrap-up their 2021 season on the road for two games in Duluth against the Huskies. Both games will be available to listen on mixlr.com/larksbaseball.
