Walk-Offs, Rain Define Tuesday
Rochester, Minn (June 4th, 2013)–With rain getting in the way of multiple games, the night was short on a whole. Two postponements and an early call left only five full games on the league slate.
Thunder Bay and Duluth were both forced to use extra innings on Tuesday, and both came away with walk-off wins.
In Madison, the Mallard offense was on top of its game in a 13-6 victory over Wisconsin Rapids as five players recorded two RBI.
Thunder Bay 6, Mankato 5 (F/10)
Ryan Casillas (Southern Illinois) was the big winner on the night, as he collected four hits including a ground-rule double to tie the game in the bottom of the tenth. Ty Stetson (Murray State) drove in the winning run with a walk.
Duluth 9, St. Cloud 8 (F/10)
After blowing the lead by giving up six runs in the eighth and ninth innings, the Huskies were able to pull out a win on a walk-off in extras. The winning run was scored on an error after a sacrifice bunt attempt.
Lakeshore 3, Eau Claire 0
The Chinook offense was finally able to break out of its slump as Lakeshore fended off the Express. On the mound, the Chinooks used a four-pitcher attack to limit the Express to just six hits while striking out 9 batters.
Madison 13, Wisconsin Rapids 6 (F/7)
The Mallards put on an offensive clinic on Tuesday as five different players recorded two RBI and nine different players scored. On the mound, Greg Walsh (Penn State) was able to hold the Rafters to two runs on four hits in 5 innings. His ERA on the season is a sparkling 1.74.
Wisconsin 6, Battle Creek 5
The Woodchucks were able to plate all six runs in the first four innings and held on for the victory. The team was again paced by the duo of Tyler Steib (San Joaquin Delta) and Matt Tellor (Southeast Missouri) who each drove in a pair of runs.
Willmar 3, Rochester 2
Steven Brault (Regis) showed again Tuesday that the Willmar pitching staff is a force to be reckoned with. The Stinger starter went 6.2 IP and allowed only one earned run on four hits while striking out 13 Honkers.
