Beetles baseball: Alexandria tries to overcome early pitching woes

Email News Alerts

Sunday's 12-11 win over the St. Cloud Sox epitomized the type of games that the Alexandria Beetles have had to try to win so far this summer.


The Beetles scored their 12 runs on 10 hits. They took a 12-6 lead into the ninth inning before having to sweat out a one-run win as 2011 all-star closer Anthony Bazzani came on to pick up the final two outs to earn the save. It's a Beetles' offense that has averaged more than six runs a night through their first 25 games.
