Ducks Shut Down Dogs
MANKATO, Minn. – Francois Larmore hit his fifth home run of the season and drove in three runs, and Mike Rozema stole four bases as the Madison Mallards dropped the Mankato MoonDogs 6-1 in a Northwoods League game Sunday night at Franklin Rogers Park.
A crowd of 1,086 saw another strong start by right-hander Corey Cabral for the Mallards (26-15 overall, 4-5 second half). He allowed just one run on four hits with seven strikeouts and no walks in eight innings to lower his ERA to 1.71.
Cabral, who will be a sophomore at San Jose State, has struck out 37 and walked only six in 47 innings this season.
Javier Sanchez added a pair of RBIs as Madison won for just the second time in its past six games and beat Mankato (20-20, 5-3) for the first time in three tries this year.
