Exterminated Beetles

It didn’t take the MoonDogs long to continue their offensive outburst of the last few games. Starting the scoring off in the bottom of the first and scoring at least 1 run in each of the first 5 innings of the game, gave MoonDogs pitcher Clay Tichota more than he needed to pick up his 3rd victory of the season. The MoonDogs went on to win 9-4.

The top three hitters in the MoonDogs lineup jumped all over the Beetles pitching going 7 for 15, including 3-5 performances from Aaron Grant and Jonny Ash. Jeremiah Piepkorn extended his home run streak to 3 games, putting him at 6 for the season and 1 behind the league lead.

Tichota pitched 6 strong innings showing masterful control as he struck out 8 and walked no one. Philip Springman came in and shut down a late inning rally by the Beetles getting 2 key strikeouts with the bases loaded. Travis Johnson worked the ninth to finish off the game.

Tomorrow night will be a rematch between the same two teams, same MoonDogs time, same MoonDogs channel. Game time is 7:05 @ the Frank
