Rox Split Doubleheader Of Sorts
The St. Cloud Rox scored a run as the road team in the top of the 14th inning to win game one of a doubleheader with Green Bay 3-2. The Rox then fell in the second (full game) of the twin bill by a 1-0 final score.
Game one was the resumption of a game that was postponed in the 13th inning at Green Bay in late May. The Rox got a run-scoring double from Trevor Charpie in the top of the 14th inning, then saw Charpie pick up the win by pitching a perfect bottom of the 13th.
Despite a great pitching effort from Zach Pop in game two, the Rox lost a tight contest 1-0. Pop allowed just one unearned run in 5.1 innings. The Bullfrogs' first batter of the game reached on an error by Jake Farr and eventually scored on a sac fly.
St. Cloud is now 12-4 on the second half of the season and hold a 2.5 game lead in the second-half NWL standings. The Rox host Green Bay again Friday night, with pregame coverage beginning at 6:35 on AM 1390 The Fan.
