Hot Rods Bats Ignite Take Series Over Cougars 11-2

May 02, 2016

"It was great that we could win these two series," Bowling Green manager Reinaldo Ruiz said. "Our offense came alive after the shutout last night." "They made mistakes and we made them pay for it," Ruiz said. "A good offensive team, that is what they do. Today we were able to capitalize on their mistakes and also we ran the bases really well."
