A's Get First Win of Season in Brookings


Jordon KontzMason Penske


Jordon Kontz and Mason Penske combined to limit the Brookings Cubs to five hits and two runs on Saturday night, paving the way for a 12-2 A's win in 8 innings. The win was the first in three tries this season.

The veteran righty Kontz (1-0) made his first start on the mound of season, going four strong innings. Kontz struck out three Cubs.

The key to the A's success on the mound was throwing strikes. After walking 13 on Wednesday night, the A's did not walk a batter.

As usual, the A's offense was powered by Penske, who went 3 for 4 with a pair of RBIs and three runs scored.

Jon Ellis delivered a season high 3 RBIs on the night.

Penske was sharp in relief of Kontz, allowing just two hits over four innings while striking out six.

The A's are off until Wednesday night when they travel to Sacred Heart to take on the Saints in Corn Belt League action. First pitch is scheduled for 7:30 pm.
