Down on the Farm: Kane County Cougars improve to 20-9 on the season

4 of 4

With the Daytona Cubs being postponed yet again, the last recap of the night will be the Kane County Cougars, who were looking to improve to 20-9.

The Cougars would fall behind early to the Burlington Bees 2-0 during the top of the first inning. Outfielder Shawon Dunston would cut the lead to one during the bottom of the second on a single to right field. The very next inning, Ben Carhart would tie up the ballgame at two apiece.

Starting pitcher Jen-Ho Tseng would have himself another beautiful outing today against the Bees despite the shaky first inning. He would work through six solid innings, giving up eight hits while striking out six batters.

Kane County took the lead during the bottom of the sixth inning and extended it in the eighth thanks to Cael Brockmeyer. Brockmeyer picked up an RBI on a single to center field during the sixth, then picked up his first double of the season later on to make it 4-2 Cougars. Right-handed reliever Zack Godley would replace Jose Arias during the top of the eighth to record the final out of that frame.

Godley would stay in the game and take the mound during the ninth inning in hopes of picking up a save. He would pick up three strikeouts, while giving up two hits and a walk through 1 1/3 innings pitched to close out the game.

Winning pitcher tonight is Jen-Ho Tseng (3-0, 2.73 ERA), losing pitcher is Harrison Cooney (2-2, 1.99 ERA) with the save being awarded to Zack Godley (6).

Final Score: Cougars 4, Bees 2.

Kane County Cougars improve to a very impressive 20-9.
