ROCHESTER — On a night in which both teams employed their full bullpen depth, the Rochester Honkers found more relief, coming from behind to stop the Duluth Huskies 9-4 in Northwoods League play.

Duluth (11-14 second half) scored single runs in the first, third and fourth innings, but gave up four runs in the sixth inning and five in the seventh.

J.D. Rogers and Eddie Satisky went 2-for-4 to lead the Duluth offense. Tyler Moniz-Witten took the loss in relief, allowing two-out singles to Brendan O'Sullivan and Dario Gomez that scored three of Rochester's four runs in the sixth inning.

Frank Craska got the win for Rochester with a scoreless inning of relief. O'Sullivan and Gomez had two hits apiece for the Honkers and drove in five runs between them.

The teams play again Friday night in Rochester.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
