Leadoff batter Eric Loxtercamp set the tone with three hits, while four other players had two hits apiece in a 14-hit barrage off three Huskies pitchers.

Most of the damage was done late. Will Craig’s single scored the tying run in the seventh and the winning run came home on a subsequent error. The mistakes continued the next inning as three of the four runs scored on two Duluth errors.

Huskies starting pitcher Patrick McGrath scattered eight hits in six innings and left with a 3-2 lead. Reliever Riley Sanderson took his fourth loss in four decisions, allowing six runs in 1⅓ innings.

The Huskies (5-6), who fell 3½ games behind the first-place Rox (9-4), are off today before beginning a two-game series at Willmar.
