Bums can't hold lead, fall to Miners 4-2

Posted: Updated:
TRAVERSE CITY  -The Beach Bums jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead but could not hang onto it.  The Miners also stifled a late Traverse City comeback at Wuerfel Park.  Southern Illinois won 4-3 Thursday night.


Jose Vargas got T.C. on the board with a sac fly in the first.  Jovan Rosa drove another run home later that inning.


However the Miners responded with four unanswered runs.  T.C. got one back in the 9th but hit into a double play to end their final threat.


The Beach Bums and Miners play a rubber match at Wuerfel Park Thursday night at 7:05pm.  Ian MacDougall hopes to continue his good fortunes on the mound.  He could earn his fifth win in six tries.
