Hot Rods Squeak Past LumberKings 3-2

April 29, 2016

"I take the same approach to every single at-bat, no matter if guys are on base or I'm leading off - it's hit the ball hard and get on," Cronenworth said. "If it means I have to walk or put it in play with two strikes, any way possible is my approach."
