(Rochester, Minn.)—The Rochester Honkers fell to the St. Cloud Rox 10-2 in seven innings in game one of Saturday’s doubleheader. Tyler Feyereisen (St. Thomas) picked up the loss after giving up three runs in the first inning and being forced out after one inning of work due to NWL pitch count rules. Lucas Gilbreath (Minnesota) earned the win for St. Cloud.

The Honkers finally broke through in the bottom of the seventh with a pair of runs scored on Joe DeRoche-Duffin’s 2 RBI single that brought in Scott Schreiber (Nebraska) and Ryan Summers (Louisville), but that wasn’t enough as they fell 10-2
