Boscan Soars To Curb ‘Cats
Gary, IN –The Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks’ offense was bolstered by one man on Friday night at The Steel Yard. Manuel Boscan belted three home runs and accounted for eight RBI in to hand the Gary SouthShore RailCats an 11-3 loss.
Boscan entered the game with three home runs in 2022 and ended the game with double that total as he deposited each one over the right-field wall in the fourth, sixth, and seventh innings.
The ‘Cats answered with two big flies of their own. Zach Welz sent his first career RailCat homerun onto the left-field concourse, a two-run shot that brought Alec Olund home in the third inning. Olund also blasted a home run to left in the fifth inning, his first at home this season.
Two RailCats finished the game having reached safely three times. Michael Cruz singled and walked twice while Olund contributed two free passes of his own. Daniel Lingua, Jesus Marriaga, Zach Racusin, and Tom Walraven also chipped in base hits.
One large silver lining for the ‘Cats was the performance of Steven Colon on the mound. He entered out of the bullpen in the eighth and shut down the red-hot RedHawk bats for two innings, allowing just one baserunner while striking out three in his outing.
The RailCats tallied eight hits on the day as their pitchers struck out nine batters.
The two teams take the field for game two of the series tomorrow at The Steel Yard at 4:00 p.m. as the RailCats look to draw even with their opposition. All the action can be found on aabaseball.tv, 95.9 WEFM, and the Gary SouthShore RailCats Broadcast Network through the Mixlr app.
