After taking last night's game in extra innings at Joe Faber Field, the Rox fell short in Duluth in game number two in the home and home series with the Huskies.
St. Cloud struck first, as Reese Gregory (SCSU) doubled with 2 outs in the top of the second inning to give the Rox a 2-0 lead, as Kyle Serrano (Colorado Mesa) and Marcus Carson (Kentucky) scored.
The Huskies answered in the bottom of the third, and the game remained all the way up until the 5th inning.
Andrew Clemen (SDSU) got the start for St. Cloud, and after dominating in his previous three outings, struggled a bit today for the Rox. Clemen lasted 5 innings, giving up 7 hits, 5 runs while striking out just two.
In the top of the fifth, the Rox took a 4-2 lead as Jake Farr (Tennessee Tech) and Brandon Benson (Georgia College) came around to score.
From there, it was all Huskies, as they turned a 4-2 deficit into a 10-4 lead and never looked back as the Rox and Huskies moved to 3-3 in their season series thus far.
