Hot Rods Take 2 of 3 From Captains

July 09, 2016

Bowling Green, KY - During a night that was supposed to feature a doubleheader, the Bowling Green Hot Rods beat the Lake County Captains in a rain-altered, nine-inning affair by a score of 4-1 on Thursday night.

With the first game of the doubleheader postponed until August 23 due to rain, the Hot Rods got the scoring started after a two-hour and twenty-minute delay in the second inning.

With the LHP Thomas Pannone (L, 5-5) on the mound for the Captains instead of scheduled starter Brock Hartson (scratched), outfielder David Olmedo-Barrera launched a solo homer in the bottom of the second to give the Hot Rods a 1-0 lead.
