MEDFORD, Ore. – Free bases, fluky base hits and tying runs left on base in multiple innings late in both games lead to the Rogues dropping both games of the doubleheader. Tanner Cantwell (Montana State - Billings) had an extra base hit in each game.
In Game One, the Chico Heat were issued six walks. Two of the free passes came around to score, and two more drove in two runs with the bases loaded.
In Game Two, the bases were loaded for the Heat’s hits leader, Parke Phillips. He hit a can of corn to right field, but it was lost in the sun by right fielder Tommy Ahlstrom. Two came home because of the mother nature double, and a third run came home on a wild pitch later in the inning.
Josh McIntyre (Fullerton JC) hit a two-run home run in the fourth inning. It awoken the Rogues bats, they put two in scoring position in the fifth, and Tanner Cantwell (Montana State-Billings) tripled and scored to lead off the sixth, but the Rogues failed to overcome the four-run fourth inning by the Heat.
Cole Carder (Antelope Valley) had his 14-game hitting streak snapped in Game Two of the doubleheader. However, Tanner Cantwell is now working on a ten-game hitting streak.
It was a terrific crowd on hand for the Rogues first home game in over a week. 1,509 enjoyed a gorgeous, sunny day in the mid 80’s and five hours of baseball at Harry & David Field.
