A late inning rally wasn’t enough for the Thunder Bay Border Cats as the Dogs held on to win last night 6-5 on the second night of their 6 game road trip. It marked the first time the MoonDogs were victorious in 4 attempts at Thunder Bay.

Starter Jason Conrad threw 7 strong innings but ran into a snag in the 8th, as he gave up 5 runs, capped off by a homerun by Cats outfielder Armando Lara. Travis Johnson came in to close the 9th, picking up his first save.

The sticks came alive for the Dogs offense as they tied a season-high with 14 hits. Jeremiah Piepkorn went 5-5, belting out a 2 run homerun. Ryan Chiarelli, Landon Danelson, and Ritchie Price all collected 2 hits in the offensive explosion.

The Dogs will head to Duluth for a two game series to wrap up the first half of the Northwoods League Season.
