Rox Continue Undefeated Start Behind Cowden’s Big Eighth Inning

La Crosse, WI – St. Cloud (3-0) pulled away from La Crosse (1-2) late with eight runs in the eighth inning to take a 16-6 win on Wednesday night.

Josh Cowden (BYU) built on his torrid start to the season in the eighth with a solo home run to lead off the inning. Cowden would follow that up with a second home run in the same inning, this time, a grand slam over the right field fence.

Another early standout for the Rox, Charlie Condon (Georgia), drove in two more runs earlier on in the game. Condon now has 7 RBI’s in the first three games of the summer.

Brady Prewitt (CSU-Pueblo) also had a solid night at the plate. After driving in three runs in the first two games against Waterloo, Prewitt added two more RBI’s in the opener against La Crosse.

Returner, Nathan Culley (Minnesota State-Mankato), started on the bump for the Rox and picked up right where he left off last summer. Culley threw six solid innings, allowing just two runs and striking out seven Loggers batters.
