Rusty SwansonRyan Van Moer


After suffering their first back to back losses of the season, the Marshall A's bounced back on Saturday night in Willmar, beating the Rails 10-5 in Corn Belt League action.

Rusty Swanson (3-0) went six strong innings for the A's, scattering nine hits while allowing three runs.

Ryan VanMoer, Jordon Kontz and Zach Olson each had three hits for the Marshall attack. Every A's batter recorded at least one hit.

The A's jumped out to a quick 3-0 lead after two innings, and then pushed it to 4-0 after three and a half innings.

The Rails got as close as 5-3 heading to the seventh inning, but the A's scored five in the stanza to put the game out of reach.

The A's improved to 13-4 overall and 10-2 in the Corn Belt. They will return home on Sunday to face the first place Bird Island Bullfrogs (10-1) in a pivotal league contest. First pitch is scheduled for 5:00 pm at Legion Field.
