The best 2-of-3 series continues Sunday with game two at Cleveland. The game is scheduled to start at 1 p.m.

The Wildcats banged out 15 hits and had five batters with at least two. Cleveland broke the game open with three runs in the top of the eighth inning, keyed by Salm’s RBI double, to mount a 7-1 lead.

HG rallied for three runs in the ninth, sparked by Ryan Hal- verson’s two-run single, but fell short.

“Cleveland played very well in all aspects of the game,” said Riverdog player-manager Mark Holzman whose team is 13-5.

“Mitch Gardner did a nice job of keeping us off balance. We had a difficult time with the top of Cleveland’s order.”

Gardner was the winning pitcher. He started and went seven innings – allowing one run (unearned) on four hits with five walks and strikeouts each.

Dylan Callahan led the Riverdogs in hits with two.

Brad Olson was the starting and losing hurler for HG. Olson gave up three runs (all earned) on 12 hits with four walks and three strikeouts in six innings.
