Miners win 10-4

In consecutive order, Andre Marshal, Scott Simon, Jason Arrowood and Chris Hall hit for a combined cycle in a five run third inning that saw the Miners go from Trailing 3-1, to leading 6-3.

Hall, who was already 2-2 with a 2-run homer, lead off the sixth with a single and then later scored when Joey Metropoulos ended an 0-14 streak against the Rascals with a double off Doherty that hit the top of the left field wall to plate Hall making it 7-3.

It was 7-4 going into the bottom of the eighth. Taylor Fowler worked a scoreless seventh, but walked the first two he faced in his second inning and was taken out for Jordan Thomson. Metropoulos was the first batter Thomson faced and the big first baseman crushed the Miners second home run of the night to left center to make it 10-4

Lovell (2-1) went seven innings, giving up three earned runs, six hits and struck out two. Both his wins have come against River City this season.
