A's Start Fast, Falter Late


Zach OlsonAlex Thompson


The Marshall A's jumped out to a quick 4-0 lead in the first inning, but were unable to plate any more runs on Friday night, falling 5-4 to the Milroy Yankees at Legion Field.

Logan Tomasek (4-2) was in command of the Yankees through four innings, but a four run fourth tied the game, and then an error brought across the winning run one inning later.

Zach Olson and Alex Thompson each had a pair of hits for the A's.

Fred Roufs and Harry Weilage were inducted into the Marshall Baseball Hall of Fame prior to the first pitch.

Former A's pitcher Marc Craigmile won this year's Alumni Home Run Derby.

The A's will travel to Willmar on Saturday to take on the Rails at 7:30 pm and then return home to battle the first place Bird Island Bullfrogs on Sunday at 5:00 pm.
