Honkers Tripped Up In Thunder Bay
Rochester, MN (rochesterhonkers.com) — The Rochester Honkers fell to the Thunder Bay Border Cats Wednesday night 2-1 in Thunder Bay. Rochester starter Tyler Feyereisen (St. Thomas) was charged with the loss after surrendering a run in just two innings of work. Feyereisen was removed after the second inning due to NWL pitch count regulations. Thunder Bay starter Jeremy Charles (Hartford) earned the win after he allowed just one run in a full nine innings pitched.
Matt Fiedler (Minnesota) accounted for the lone Honkers' run with a solo homerun in the third inning. Fielder has logged a hit in the last four straight games, and is 9-18 at the plate in those games.
Despite the loss, the Honkers still sit in second place in the North division for the second half at 9-6, 2.5 games back from the first place St. Cloud Rox. They are third in the overall season standings in the division; trailing the Rox and the first half champion Willmar Stingers.
The Honkers will be back home tonight, Thursday to take on the Willmar Stingers. It will be Mayo Department of Medicine Night and a Novo Nordisk Homerun for Life Thursday.
