With the start of the 2004 season ending in an array of close losses for the Mankato MoonDogs, they would fight back and take Game 2, by a score of 3-1.

The MoonDogs offense wouldn’t wait long to get on the board, scoring an early run in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd innings to take a 3-0 lead.

After turning in a stellar performance in his first outing, Skyler Young (Purdue) would duplicate that feat by tossing 5 great innings, giving up just 1 run on 4 hits, while fanning 7 Border Cats.

Flame-thrower, Neil Wagner (NDSU), would finish off the ‘Cats in the 7th, picking up his first save of the season.

Philip Springman (Cal State – LA), back in a MoonDogs uniform for a second season, got his first action of the season in the 6th inning. He proved to be overwhelming for the ‘Cats hitters by striking out the side in his 1 inning of work.

Ryan Chiarelli (Santa Clara) led the offensive attack for the MoonDogs, going 2-3 with a run scored and a stolen base.
