McCarthy Tatum had two hits including a triple. Ethan Wilson had two hits. Nick Matera & Karl Ellison each doubled. Casey Martin scored twice. DJ Stewart & Karl Ellison had two RBIs apiece. Jared Carr homered and scored twice.
Catcher Karl Ellison showed off the gun throwing out Osleivis Basabe at second base in a stolen base attempt in the second inning 💪.
Johan Rojas has hit the ball really well the last two games - only one hit today but he’s starting to feel it, smoked a ball in the ninth inning that the BG right fielder ran down - watch for good things to come.
Griff McGarry on the hill
Happy Day, Happy Baseball ⚾️
