Rox Roll into the Playoffs!
St. Cloud, MN — Your 2017 St. Cloud Rox knew that they were in the playoffs a long time ago, but the night is finally here. The Rox clinched a playoff birth for winning on top of the standings of the North division in the first half of the season, and finished with a 42-30 record good for second in the North division. The Rox host the Willmar Stingers in the first divisional matchup in a single elimination game. Aaron Rozek, the Northwoods league pitcher of the year is starting on the mound for the Rox and looks to deliver another dominant performance and most importantly a win.
