A's Rally to Win Opener


Logan TomasekZach Thompson


Zach Thompson singled in the go-ahead run with two outs in the eighth as the Marshall A's overcame a late 2-1 deficit to defeat the Minneota Mudhens 3-2 on Thursday night.

The win was the first for new manager Ryan Schwagel.

Logan Tomasek (1-0) got the win in relief of starter Rusty Swanson. Tomasek threw three scoreless innings, striking out three while allowing just one hit.

After falling behind 2-0, the A's cut the margin in half in the bottom of the fifth inning when Ryan VanMoer knocked in Tomasek with a RBI single.

The A's eighth inning rally started when Jordon Kontz was hit by a pitch to lead off. Kontz came around to score after an error on the Mudhens' shortstop, tying the game at 2-2.

The A's will host the Luverne Cardinals on Friday night at Legion Field. First pitch is scheduled for 7:30 pm.
