The Rockford Rivets narrowly beat the Fond du Lac Dock Spiders in the second game of their doubleheader Thursday, but thanks to Jeff Heinrich (South Carolina), they were able to slip past the visiting Dock Spiders.

Heinrich was 3-3 at the plate for the Rivets, with a double and a run scored. The run scored came in the bottom of the second, when the Fond du Lac catcher attempted a surprise pick-off at first base. The ball ended up going into right field, allowing Heinrich to score all the way from second base, putting the Rivets on the board.

On the season, Heinrich is now batting .275 with two doubles, a home run and seven RBI. This was his fourth multi-hit game of the season, and was the second time he has recorded three hits in a game.
