The Alexandria Blue Anchors (1-1, 10-26) exacted a measure of revenge as they won 8-1 over the Thunder Bay Border Cats (1-1, 15-22) at Knute Nelson Memorial Stadium. The Border Cats leave with a series split on the 2-game road trip to open the 2nd Half.

The Blue Anchors were led by Kris Goodman and Roman Collins who each had one home run and three RBI's. Collins went 3-4 at the dish while Goodman went 1-3 with a walk and a pair of runs scored. Rickey Sanchez and Cam Duzenack each had 2-hit nights as well.

Sal Taormina (Kean University) had an RBI double in the ninth inning as the only Border Cats response on the night. Tyler Rolland (Southern Illinois) and Robb Paller (Columbia University) each went 2-3 with a walk and Rolland scoring the only run for the Cats.

Jason Zgardowski won his first game of the season for the Blue Anchors (1-5) going five innings allowing three hits with a walk and three strikeouts.

Zach Speer (Trinity University) was a tough luck loser (0-2) going five strong allowing just two earned runs on five hits with four strikeouts. One error in the 7th inning cost the Cats a chance at coming back. Alexandria scored five runs against Reid Peavy (Northwestern State) in the inning, only one of which was earned.

Thunder Bay comes home Friday night to TBaytel Park to face the first half North Division winning Willmar Stingers (0-2, 22-10) starting at 7:05pm. It is Season Ticket Redemption Night #1. Righthander Ryan Powers is probable as the next pitcher in the rotation for the Border Cats. The Philadelphia Phillies 2014 22nd round draft pick take a 1-1 record to the mound. Willmar righty A.J.
