Rox Walk-Off Against Express Sunday
The Rox beat the Eau Claire Express 7-6 Sunday night at Joe Faber Field. Boo Vazquez hit a walk-off home run for St. Cloud in the bottom of the ninth inning.
The Express scored a pair of runs in the top of the ninth off of closer Kevin Burgee, but Vazquez’s second home run of the season bailed him out and gave the Rox the win.
Eight Rox players registered hits in the game, with Morgan Phillips, Will Craig, Charles Galiano and Vazquez each registering a pair of hits.
St. Cloud improves to 18-15 with the win but are mathematically eliminated from winning the North Division in the season’s first half. The Willmar Stingers are currently in first place at 21-8 on the season, one-half game ahead of Waterloo.
The Rox play a doubleheader today against Mankato. Game one is scheduled for 12:05 at Joe Faber Field, followed by a 7:05 game at Franklin Rogers Park in Mankato.
