Border Cats Swept Away in Rochester
The Border Cats were swept by the Rochester Honkers on Wednesday night after a 7-3 defeat. The game was called after seven innings thanks to a heavy rainstorm. They tried playing through the rain for a few batters but the decision was made after the rain continued to fall.
Prior to the rain, the Border Cats got on the board in the first inning thanks to RBI’s from Evan Russell and Brady Gulakowski. In the bottom half of the inning, the Honkers came right back and tied it at two. The Honkers then scored five unanswered runs to grab a 7-2 lead. It would stay that way until Brandon Trammell hit his first home run of the season and cut the lead to 7-3. Omar Maldonado (0-3) picked up the loss for the Cats while David Lemasters (4-0) took the victory.
The Cats now head north to Duluth, MN. to play the Huskies in the third game of the Superior Cup. The Cats will look to get their first win of the series and cut the series to 2-1. You can follow the action through the Border Cats Twitter tbbordercats.
