Rox Steal One From Bucks
The St. Cloud Rox steal one in thrilling fashion from the Waterloo Bucks and win 5-4 in 11 innings.
St. Cloud scored first with an RBI walk from Jordan Barth in the third. Waterloo stayed scoreless until a three-run sixth inning to put the Bucks in front 3-1.
Then in the top of the ninth, Jordan Barth did it again. He laced a two-RBI double down the line in left to score a pair and tie the game at three. In the tenth, both teams scored to make it 4-4, but the excitement happened in the 11th.
St. Cloud scored on an error from Bucks pitcher Zach Miller to make it 5-4, Rox. In the bottom of the 11th, Rox catcher Luke Roskam made a diving grab over his shoulder on a bunt that Jalen Smith fouled back. With two outs and Xane Washington on second, Tristian Peterson hit a single to left. Washington charged home to score, but Ben Norman came up firing in left for St. Cloud and hosed Xane to win the ballgame 5-4.
Bucks and Rox will square off tomorrow from Cost Cutters Field at Riverfront Stadium.
