Game two of Monday night's double header began in the same fashion as game one- St. Cloud producing early and putting the Bucks in a corner. 

The Bucks offense finally showed up in the sixth inning, though, as they tallied four runs and took a 5-2 lead in an eventual win. 

Errors were a large part of the reason the Bucks were able to come back. Steven Goldstein reached on an error to lead off the first, and Blake Berger followed that up by reaching on an error on a sac bunt. Soon after, Ryan Nagle singled to load the bases, and Connor McClain laced a double into the left-center field gap that scored two, which gave the Bucks the lead for good. 

Bucks starter AJ Puk was credited with a no decision after going five innings and allowing two runs on just one hit. Puk kept the bats quiet, though he struggled to find the strike zone, walking six. Aaron Myers took the victory in his Riverfront Stadium debut, going one inning and keeping the stat sheet clean. Adam Dian earned the save, closing out the seventh inning and ending the homestand. 

The Bucks travel to Mankato next for a 7:05 p.m. contest against the Moondogs. That kicks off a seven game road trip for Waterloo. They return to Riverfront Stadium Monday, June 30, for game two of a double header against Rochester.
