The Madison Broncos ran their current win streak to five games with a 12-1 blasting of the Freeman Black Sox on Tuesday night at Flynn Field. The game was called after seven innings due to the 10-run rule.|
Trailing 1-0 heading into the bottom of the second, the Broncos grabbed the lead with two outs. With the bases loaded, Matt Schoeberl reached on an error that produced two runs to put Madison on top 2-1.
Madison broke open the game in the fourth frame. Ten Broncos stepped to the plate, and Madison scored four runs in the frame to grab a 6-1 advantage. Mitch McNary had an RBI double and Eric Hortness added a two-RBI single.
The Broncos put the game on ice in the fifth inning. Eleven batters stepped to the plate, and the Broncos scored six runs to grab a commanding 12-1 lead. The big blow of the inning was a three-RBI double by Brian Miller. Hortness also had another two-RBI single in the inning.
Madison finished the game with 16 hits, including six doubles.
"A couple of hitters who were in slumps hit the ball well," manager Trent Miller said.
Brian Miller and Greg Biagi each had a pair of doubles for the winners. Hortness had a double, two singles and four RBIs.
Trevor Johnson had three singles while McNary had a double and a single. Getting singles were Schoeberl, Jordan Brown, Jon Waba and Nick Bird.
Brown went five innings to pick up the win. He gave up five hits and one run, had three strike-outs and walked three batters.
"This was Jordan's first outing this year and he looked good," said Trent Miller.
In the fourth inning, after the first two Black Sox reached base, Brown struck out the next two batters and got the final batter to ground out to get out of the jam.
Hortness finished on the hill for the Broncos. He pitched two innings, allowed just one walk and did not give up a hit.
Madison (6-2 overall and 4-0 in Cornbelt League action) will host CBL foe Flandreau on Thursday at 7 p.m.
"They have a good core of guys," said Trent Miller. "We know each other well."
