The Mankato MoonDogs scored six runs in the seventh inning to beat the Duluth Huskies 6-5 in Northwoods League baseball on Thursday before 921 at Franklin Rogers Park, snapping the Huskies’ six-game winning streak.
Duluth’s comeback magic finally faded as they scored two runs in the ninth and got the tying runner to first before a groundout ended the game.
Mankato only had seven hits but took advantage of two Huskies errors, and a wild pitch and a hit batsman by Duluth reliever Hunter Jones.
Kevin Hall had two hits and Paul Panaccione had two RBIs to lead the MoonDogs (6-10).
Cal Stevenson had two hits, including a triple, two runs and an RBI to lead the Huskies (9-7). The loss spoiled a strong pitching performance from Duluth starter Landon Smith, a 6-foot-5 right-hander from the University of Montevallo, who allowed just two hits and no runs in six innings.
The Huskies left eight runners on base. They had just four hits but took advantage of six Mankato walks.
Duluth begins a two-game series at Waterloo starting at 5:05 p.m. today.
