The Rochester Honkers will host the Willlmar Stingers tonight, July 17th, at 7:05 p.m. Gates will open at Mayo Field at 6 p.m. Matt Fiedler (Minnesota) is scheduled to start on the bump for the Honkers, and will face his Golden Gopher teammate Tyler Hanson.
The Honkers are 2-5 against the Stingers after Thursday night's 8-4 loss. The last time Willmar was in Rochester, they swept the two game series, so the Honkers will look to protect their home field in their last regular season game against the Stingers.
After a three game road trip to Alexandria and the All-Star break, the Honkers will be back in Rochester on Thursday, July 23rd, to face the Eau Claire Express at 12:05 p.m. It will be Kids "3 Buck" Day presented by Perkins. Kids 12 and under will gain admission for just $3! It will also be a Novo Nordisk Home Run for Life Thursday.
