Hot Rods Explode In 7th Down Lugnuts 7-2

May 10, 2016

"Offensively we started a little slow, but we picked it up in the seventh inning," BG manager Reinaldo Ruiz said. "We were having quality at-bats earlier, but with runners in scoring position we were having trouble driving runners in. In the seventh inning, we capitalized on their mistakes. It was good to see the offense battle all night long so we could come back and win the game."
