Mudhens Trip Up A's


Peyton GrantJordan Mernaugh


The Marshall A's had their six game win streak snapped on Wednesday night in Minneota, falling 8-7 to the Mudhens.

With a crucial three league game stretch looming this weekend, A's manager Ryan Schwagel got creative with his pitchers, sending in a couple players who hadn't toed the rubber in years in an effort to save his arms.

Nick Macchio, Connor Winkelman and Alex Thompson all made their season debut on the mound for the A's.

Winkelman (0-1) was tagged with the loss, giving up a pair of unearned runs in the seventh inning.

Peyton Grant had a career high three hits, raising his batting average from .222 to .300 in the process. He scored twice and knocked in a run.

Jordan Mernaugh drove in his first two RBIs of his A's career.

Down 8-7 in the top of the eighth, the A's looked poised to pull off another late comeback, putting runners on second and third with one out. But the Mudhens were able to escape unscathed and come away with the win.

The A's will host the Milroy Yankees on Friday night as part of Hall of Fame Night at Legion Field. First pitch is scheduled for 7:30 pm. The 5th annual A's Alumni Home Run Derby will begin at 6:30 pm.

The A's will then travel to Willmar to play the Rails on Saturday night, and then return home to face off with the first place Bird Island Bullfrogs on Sunday at 5:00 pm.
