South Bend 7, Quad Cities 2

Game Recap

I made it down to the Quad Cities to watch this one. Brendon Little looked really good through the first three innings, with good late life on his fastball and nice bite on his curve. His changeup was inconsistent but he mixed a few solid ones in. He ran into some control problems in the 4th, but escaped with just one run allowed, and then pitched a clean 5th.

Christian Donahue had a great day at the plate and Michael Cruz blasted a 416-ft. home run into the river beyond the right field wall.

  • Roederer — WOW!!!! What a spectacular start to his career.

    Since Hoerber is out I look for Roerderer first now. SSS but he couldn’t have started any better.

  • Would have loved to buy you a cold one last night I had a suit right behind home plate. Little looked good! The catcher looks like javy wearing #9 amaya?

  • Good to see Brennen Davis back playing again. Hoerder, Davis and Roederer make quite the trio to watch. Americaan is good too. :-)
