Mankato Takes Down Rox Tuesday
The Mankato MoonDogs beat the St. Cloud Rox 4-3 Tuesday night at Joe Faber Field in front of 1,579 fans. The Rox are now 14-14 on the season.
St. Cloud scored single runs in each of the first three innings to jump out to an early 3-1 lead, but Mankato scored three runs in the top of the fifth inning on an error, bases-loaded walk and groundout to take the lead.
Landon Stephens, Ryan Davis, Gus Steiger and Jack Barrie each charted a pair of hits for St. Cloud in the loss. Erik Martinez pitched 4.2 innings of scoreless relief for the Rox, allowing just three hits while striking out seven MoonDogs.
