GOTHENBURG – Gothenburg Melons Pitcher, Carlos Magdaleno, went the distance on the mound as the Melons won their fourth in a row knocking of the Cozad Reds Seniors 7-3 on Tuesday night.
The Reds struck first, in the top of the First Inning on hits by Adam Cole and Jacob Engel to plate three runs during that stanza. Madgaleno struggled in the inning hitting a batter and walking one, as he faced eight batters in the inning. However, he then settled down, only allowing two hits, walking two and striking out nine in the game’s last six innings.
