TRAVERSE CITY -- The Beach Bums used a five-run third inning and a solid pitching performance from Johnny Omahen to knock off Southern Illinois 6-1 on Thursday night at Wuerfel Park.  The Beach Bums have now opened up a three-game lead in the Frontier League East standings.  

Omahen went six and allowed just one run. Carlo Testa drove in two runs. Jose Vargas and Chase Burch each drove in one.

The Bums will go for the sweep on Friday. 

Also tonight we update the Midwest League scoreboard and recap day one at the PGA Championship.
