Chris D'Amico (Presentation College) pitched five innings of one-run baseball to pick up his league-leading 7th win, and Ben Kiefer (University of Northern Alabama), Johnny Radomskiy (Presentation College), and Omar Ortiz (Vanguard University) all homered power the Rogues to a 13-4 victory over the South Bay Storm.
Medford native Travis Danielson (Menlo College) doubled to lead off the second inning for the Rogues, which kicked off a four-run inning capped by a two-RBI double off the bat of Ryan Gamboa (Academy of Art University, San Francisco).
