OFF DAY, TOO.

Low-A: Kane County Cougars 3, Cedar Rapids Kernels 2
A low-scoring pitcher’s duel today, as the first run didn’t come until the 6th. Unfortunately that run went to the Cougars.
In the 8th, DH Travis Blankenhorn was hit by a pitch, and then 3B Caleb Hamilton doubled. C Ben Rortvedt hit a 2-run single, giving the Kernels the lead. A lead that RHP Patrick McGuff would surrender in the bottom of the 8th. The Kernels couldn’t score in the 9th, so there’s your final score.
