Jackrabbits stumble on roadJuly 27, 2017
SPRINGFIELD, OHIO – Third baseman Storm Joop and designated hitter Alex Del Rio each produced multiple-hit outings, leading the Kokomo Jackrabbits Wednesday, July 26.
Joop laced a two-bagger among his two hits and scored a run, while Del Rio scored a run as part of his two-hit resume. Their efforts were part of a balanced offensive attack for first-year field manager Gary McClure’s squad, as eight of the starters tallied at least one safety.
However, the host Champion City Kings were just as consistent at the dish. Each Kings’ player had at least one hit with four having two-or-more as part of an eight-run, 16-hit attack in route to an 8-3 decision.
The Brown and Gold return to their friendly confines at Kokomo Municipal Stadium Thursday, July 27, opening a three-game home stand with Chillicothe being their guests for a 6:35 p.m. start.
