A's Rout Rockets


Ryan SchwagelAlex Thompson


Ryan Schwagel hit a grand slam as the Marshall A's beat the Raymond Rockets 14-4 in 7 innings on Sunday at Legion Field. The game was a continuation of last's week's rain out and started in the bottom of the third inning.

Scoreless at the restart, the A's broke through first with a pair of runs in the fourth inning, all with two outs. Schwagel and Barry Meyer each produced two out hits to score runs.

The A's padded their lead with five more in the fifth, highlighted by Schwagel's grand slam over the left field ivy. It was his first home run in an A's uniform.

The Rockets answered back with four of their own in the top of sixth, and left the bases loaded. But starter Logan Tomasek (4-1) was able to escape further damage and got the final out.

Now leading just 7-4, the A's offense once again put up a crooked number in the bottom of sixth. Zach Olson hit a two run single and Alex Thompson followed with a RBI hit of his own.

The A's added four more to seal off the ten run rule in the seventh.

Thompson went 4 for 4 in the game, while Olson had 3 hits of his own.

The win improves the A's record to 11-2 overall and 8-1 in the Corn Belt League.

The A's will have the week off over the 4th of July and will travel to Granite Falls next Sunday.
