MoonDogs Stumble on the Rox

MANKATO, MN—The Mankato MoonDogs took on the St. Cloud Rox at Franklin Rogers Park in a key North Division matchup between two teams that, coming into the night, were only a game apart from each other in the standings.

On Ladies Night at The Frank, the MoonDogs defense was less than attractive, committing three errors while allowing the Rox to score two unearned runs.

Ricky Digrugilliers got the nod for Mankato and suffered his first loss of the season, while also allowing his first run(s) of the season. Digrugilliers lasted 5.2 innings allowing three runs, only one earned, on six hits while striking out two.

The MoonDogs were able to get men on the bases all throughout the night, including loading the bases three times, leaving them that way twice. All-in-all, the ‘Dogs stranded 12 baserunners on the night.

Those missed opportunities would come back to bite the ‘Dogs as they fell to the Rox by a score of 3-2, allowing the Rox to draw even with Mankato in the North Division standings with both teams possessing records of 10-6.

The Rox and MoonDogs will be back at The Frank tomorrow night to wrap up the two game series between the teams. Tickets are still available and can be purchased at the gate, in their office at 1221 Caledonia Street or online at www.mankatomoondogs.com
