The Cambrian Nissan Midget Black Sox continued play over the weekend with a pair of games in Marquette, Mi., coming away with a split.
The Midgets opened play with a 2-1 victory in extra innings in game one. Cody Yardanoff struck out six hitters in seven innings of work in a game that saw the Black Sox trailing 1-0 through six innings before sending the game into extras with a single run in the top of the seventh inning. Eric Thornton pitched the eighth inning for the Black Sox, who got a two-hit performance from Jeb Pallot. Collin McAuley knocked in the game-winning run in the eighth inning.
The loss was the first in roughly two years for Marquette at home.
