For the second time in as many days, the MoonDogs fell victim to the Thunder Bay Border Cats, 6-5. An unconverted double play, allowed the winning run to score in the bottom of the 11th inning.

After Friday nights heart-breaker, when the Border Cats John McKee hit a game-winning walk-off home run to beat the ’Dogs 4-3, the MoonDogs responded with some offensive power of their own on Saturday.

Jordan Prado, who has played nearly every position for the MoonDogs this summer, came out swinging and blasted not one, but two home runs in the game. He finished the night 2-3, with 2 runs scored and 2 RBI.

Grant Rembert also put a run on the board for the MoonDogs, courtesy of the long ball, as he went 3-4 on the night.

Despite the offensive fireworks, the Border Cats found a crack in the armor of MoonDogs All Star pitcher, Will Krout. In uncharacteristic fashion, the ‘Cats scored five times with Krout on the mound. Jose Shaw came in to relive Krout and struck out five, over 5.2 innings, before the Cats would scratch out the game-winning run.

Tonight, the MoonDogs stop in St. Cloud for the first game of a home-and-home series with the River Bats. The same two team will meet in Mankato, Monday night at 7:05 p.m.

Monday night is MSU Coach Dean Bowyer Bobblehead night, where the first 600 fans through the gates at Franklin Rogers Park will receive a free Dean Bowyer bobblehead.

Tickets are still available at the MoonDogs ticket office, located at 310 Belle Ave, or at both Hy-Vee locations. Call 507-625-7047 for more information.
