After the MoonDogs won Monday night 13-5, the Huskies didn’t think kindly and showed why they are leading the North Division by beating Mankato, 8-1.

Duluth picked up an early run in the top of the first inning and scored another run in the third to take a 2-0 lead.

MoonDogs starter, Justin Garcia, seemed to have the game in control after giving up the early 2 runs, but Duluth turned it on in the sixth inning, as they scored 5 times to take a 7-0 lead.

Duluth scored one more run in the seventh to finish their scoring for the night.

Mankato continued to battle and break up the shut-out, and in the bottom of the eighth they did just that, as Ryan Chiarelli scampered around the bases from first base on Aaron Grant’s double to right center.

The Huskies rode the arm of Doug Mathis, who shut down the MoonDogs for seven innings, allowing no runs on 5 hits, walking none and fanning 10 batters. Mathis picked up his third win on the season, improving his record to 3-1.

Garcia was tagged with his fifth loss of the season, dropping his record to 4-5.

Aaron Grant continued his hot hitting of late for the MoonDogs, finishing 3-4 with 2 doubles and 1 RBI.
