Aviators winning streak halted at three

LOVES PARK (WREX) -  The hits came early and often for the Frontier Greys (5-25) tonight as they would rack up thirteen against the Rockford Aviators (13-15), presented by Pearson, winning tonight by a final score of 9-3.

The Greys put three runs on the board in the first inning and never looked back.  Cameron Monger and Greg Bachman would score after Joe Rapp would single to center and Edgar Corcino let the ball slip under his glove for an error.  Rapp would eventually come around to score when Michael Vaughn grounded out to short, allowing Rapp to score from third.

Kyle Bruggemann pitched 5.2 innings tonight but gave up seven runs on eleven hits while walking two and striking out nine as he was handed his fourth straight loss this season.

The Greys eventually led 7-0 in the game, but the Aviators showed signs of life in the bottom of the fifth inning.

Edgar Corcino would reach on an error by Chase Tucker to lead off the inning before Jeff Kremer and Brian Bistagne would hit back-to-back singles to load the bases with no outs.  Mason Morioka would then pick up and RBI as he reached on a fielder's choice to second that scored Corcino.  Kalaika Kahoohalahala also picked up an RBI after grounding into a double play that allowed Kremer to score from third.  Bistagne would score the final run of the game for the Aviators when Tanner Witt reached on an errant throw by Tucker, his second of the inning, but was tagged out trying to advance to second on a wild throw.

Frontier pushed two more runs across in the top of the eighth inning when Tucker and Jon Minucci scored on a single by Rapp to make the score 9-3 where it would remain for night.

With the series split at one game a piece, the Aviators and Greys will wrap up the four-game series with a double-header tomorrow night beginning at 6:05 p.m.  Oscar's Pub & Grill will be bringing you a special two-game $1 beer night!  All Budweiser draft beer will cost fans just $1 and all bottles will cost just $2.  It will also be Manufacturing Night at the stadium as manufacturing companies will receive complimentary tickets courtesy of Northwest Bank.  Companies must register prior to the game in order to receive tickets.
