A's Go 0-2 in TigerTown Classic
Tyler Flattum

BELLE PLAINE, Minn. The Marshall A's lost their third straight game on Saturday night, falling 5-2 to host Belle Plaine in the TigerTown Class. Jordon Kontz (1-2) had a strong outing until a 3 run homer in the 8th inning ended his day.

After each team scored a run in the first inning, the game remained tied at 1-1 until the A's benifitted from a two out Belle Plaine error in the 5th inning to take a 2-1 lead.

Leading 2-1 in the top of the 7th, Kontz found himself in a jam. With runners on the corners and 1 out, he got a grounder to first base. The A's tried to turn the double play, but were unable to, and the tying run scored from third.

The Tigers broke the game open in extras as they got a 1 out 3 run homer just over the right field ivy, pushing the score to 5-2.

Cody Curry had a nice day at the plate for the A's, finishing 2 for 3 with a double and an RBI.

The A's will host Canby on Tuesday night at Legion Field. First pitch is scheduled for 7:30 pm.
