Olson Doubles A's to Win Over Cubs


Zach OlsonJordan Mernaugh


Zach Olson doubled home two runs with two outs in the eighth inning, breaking a 6-6 tie game as the A's beat the Brookings Cubs 8-6 at Legion Field on Wednesday night.

The win improved the A's overall season record to 9-2, eclipsing the 8 total wins from a year ago.

Zach Thompson (1-0) made his first career appearance on the mound, throwing a scoreless seventh and eighth innings to pick up the win.

Jordan Mernaugh also made his A's debut on the mound, starting the game and throwing 4 1/3 innings of one run ball.

Down 1-0 in the third, the A's offense took advantage of the Brookings pitcher losing the strike zone, as several walks and wild pitches led to a six run inning. Nich Macchio provided the big hit with a two run single.

Facing a 6-1 deficit, the Cubs rallied back with five runs in the top of the sixth - all scored with two outs.

The A's will host the Raymond Rockets on Sunday night in a Corn Belt League battle. First pitch is scheduled for 5:00 pm.
