MoonDogs and Huskies Split Series

Mankato, Minnesota—In the final game of a two-game series between the Mankato MoonDogs and the Duluth Huskies at Franklin Rogers Park the Huskies were able to end the night with a victory by the score of 6-5 in 12 innings, salvaging a series split.

Suspect defense once again was a cause of concern for the MoonDogs, who committed six errors on the night costing them four unearned runs, including the final three Huskies runs coming by way of charity.

An errant throw to third in the 12th allowed Duluth to score one of the aforementioned unearned runs, this one being the final tally they would need, as Wade Regas shut the door on any MoonDogs comeback attempts.

Robby Evans (1-0) was the MoonDogs’ starter and went 5.2 innings, allowing three runs, two earned, on seven hits, while striking out three, he got a no decision for the outing.

Dalton Lehnen gave the MoonDogs a very solid performance out of the ‘pen, pitching four scoreless innings, striking out five Huskies and working out of a jam in the 11th when the first two batters would reach base but would not score.

Much like yesterday’s affair, the MoonDogs got the scoring going early with one run in the first and then another two coming in the third, thanks to a two-run bomb from Chase Hamilton, his third HR of the year.

The MoonDogs are scheduled for a double-header tomorrow vs. the Rochester Honkers. Game One will be at The Frank while Game Two will be played at Mayo Field in Rochester.

First pitch is scheduled for 12:05 and tickets are still available. They can be picked up either at the gates, in their office at 1221 Caledonia St. or online at www.mankatomoondogs.com

You can also listen to the game live on 1230 AM The Fan Mankato, on the iHeart Radio app, or on www.mankatomoondogs.com
