Zach OlsonPeyton Grant


The Marshall A's jumped out to a 9-1 lead and held on to beat the Milroy Yankees 12-7 in Milroy on Friday night. The win improved the A's to 6-1 on the season and a perfect 5-0 in the Corn Belt League.

Zach Olson (2-0) threw six innings in relief of starter Rusty Swanson to earn the win. Olson struck out six Yankees and allowed two runs on six hits.

Olson hit a three run home run in the third inning, pushing the A's lead to 9-1. But the Yankees stormed back with four runs in the bottom stanza, chasing Swanson off the mound.

Milroy got a pair off Olson in his first inning, cutting the A's lead to 9-7, but Olson found his groove and didn't allow a run the rest of the way.

Peyton Grant doubled and scored in the eighth, his first career hit for the A's.

The A's will travel to Bird Island on Sunday in a battle of unbeaten Corn Belt teams. First pitch is scheduled for 3:00 pm.
