Schneemann Tallies 2 Hits in MoonDog’s Win
St. Cloud, MN — Daniel Schneemann (BYU) has been one of the Rox (27-16) best players over the last couple weeks. For the 2nd straight game, the sophomore had multiple hits. His teammates though, struggled Tuesday night, and dropped their 1st home in the last 5 days 14-0 to the MoonDogs.
Schneemann has seen his average improve to .316 after two 4 hit games, and now this multi-hit game. His BYU teammate Keaton Kringlen, doubled in the 7th inning for the 4th time this year but St. Cloud could not bring him home.
Matt Tarantino (Pacific) also had one hit tonight as well as Angelo Altavilla (Nebraska).
It wasn't the best day for the Rox out on the mound, but their All-Star Closer Brent Killam (Georgetown) pitched a scoreless 8th when he came on with the bases loaded. He only needed 11 pitches to get a pop-up in the infield and back-to-back strikeouts.
Ivan Coutinho (Bethune-Cookman) entered the game in the 9th, and only needed to face 3 Mankato hitters to get the outs he needed.
Despite the setback, the Rox remain at the top of the standings with an overall record of 27-16. The 1st half champions are tied with the Bucks for the best record in the North.
The Rox now head to Mankato to get a little revenge on the MoonDogs tomorrow night. We return home after that to finish up the week at home, starting with a series against the Express. Thursday will feature the award winning national entertainment act "ZOOperstars" presented by Plaza Park Bank and Times Media. 1st pitch is set for 7:05 PM as St. Cloud who has spent the majority of the last month on the road will finally have an extended stay at home for the 1st time since the first week of the season. Following tomorrow's road game, it will have just three more in July.
