Miners Bury Sliders

YPSILANTI, MI, August 14, 2009

Ryan Kussmaul threw seven strong shutout innings only allowing one hit on way to the Southern Illinois Miners 10-0 victory over Midwest Sliders of Ypsilanti.

Joash Brodin collected the Sliders only hit in the bottom of the first on a single. No Slider player even reached second base on Miner pitching Friday night.

The Miners scored their first seven runs of the game all on homers. Joey Metropoulos started the Southern Illinois slugging with a two-run bomb in the top of the first inning. The next two bombs built the Minor lead to 7-0, a two run shot from Tony Roth, and a three run bomb from Chris Crescenzi.

Kyle Kearcher got the loss after allowing eight earned runs in 3 1/3 innings. Kyle Wink served very valuable for Midwest tonight, throwing 5 2/3 innings in relief to help save the Slider bullpen. Wink only allowed one run finishing the game.

Saturday at 6:05 p.m. the Sliders and Miners will play the middle game of their series at EMU’s Oestrike Stadium.
