A's Bats Erupt, Beat Express 23-1
Andrew Kinney

TRACY, Minn. The combination of a small park, a strong wind, and some hot bats came together in Tracy on Tuesday night as the Marshall A's cruised to a 23-1 win over the Tracy Express.

Andrew Kinney had a monster night at the plate, going 5 for 5 with 3 homeruns, 7 RBIs and 6 runs scored.

Brandon Wilhelmi (3-0) continued to throw the ball well for the A's in 2012. The veteran went all 7 innings, giving up just 1 run while striking out 7 batters.

Andrew Larsen and Chace Pollock also homered for the A's. Larsen's 3 run shot to left in the 1st inning helped the A's build an early 10 run lead.

Pollock's homerun - a grand slam - highlighted a 10 run 7th inning. Pollock would add an RBI double later in the 7th, giving him 5 RBI's for the inning.

Pollock and Cody Curry each finished with 4 hits.

The A's will travel to Bird Island on Wednesday night for a Corn Belt league contest. First pitch is scheduled for 7:30 pm.
