James Albury and Clay McCord had stellar nights as the Sliders extended their winning streak to five, beating the River City Rascals 5-0.

It didn’t take long for the Sliders to give Albury support, scoring three unearned runs in the first inning. The bases were loaded after an error by Rascals third baseman Andy Reilly, allowing Roberto Mena to score on a grounder to first by Robbie Knapp. Clay McCord followed with a two-run single to right.

The Sliders (20-22) added two final runs in the fourth. Gilberto Zayas and Knapp singled to start the inning. Both runners would advance on a passed ball, allowing them to score on a McCord single. McCord finished the night 3-3 with four RBI’s.

The Rascals (27-16) never could get a handle on Albury’s pitches, seeming off-balance and guessing at the plate.

Albury (6-1) allowed no runs on only two hits and struck out six Rascals in seven innings of work. Between the third and seventh innings, Albury retired 15 of the 16 batters he faced.

Daniel Howard gave up five runs (two earned) for the Rascals. Howard (3-3) went seven innings and struck out four.

The series finale will be at 7:05 today at Oestrike Stadium. The Sliders will be looking to sweep their second straight series.
