Miners win in rout!

The miners won 14-7 tonight to Improve to 16-14 overall, 2nd place in the division 5 games behind Gateway. Chris Hall now has a 16 game hit streak. Willie Keene had a 3-run homer over the left field wall, Willie looks like he'll be a great hitter. The Miners added Hummel and Kevin Koski (From SIU). Kevin had 2 RBI's and a good night overall. The Miners have won 4 series in a row, and look to extend that streak to 5. Kip Pridgeon has some nice speed on his fastball hitting 91 mph more than once.

WP: Pridgeon (2-0) LP: Tracy (0-2)

A record was set at Rent One Park with a total attendance of 6501, surpassing the previous record set on opening night of 6300 ish..Way to go Southern IL.

Jose Torres has been traded to San Angelo for future considerations. Eric Vega has been released to make room for our new adds.
Danny Almonte was the starting pitcher tonight, the velocity was not there, control was off, walking 6 batters giving up 5 Er's for a no decision. The miners continue play Saturday night against Slippery Rock at 7:05 pm at Rent One Park
