After beating the Washington Wild Things (12-18) 9-1 on Monday, the Wild Things returned the favor Tuesday beating the Midwest Sliders (12-18) 9-2.

Three Slider errors led to five unearned runs by the Wild Things. Not giving much support to starting pitcher P.J. Zocchi, making his first start since he was placed on the disabled list May 27th.

Sliders Manager Eric Coleman knows his defense needs to give his pitchers better support.

“P.J. pitched alright today, it doesn’t help when you make errors behind him,” he said. “No matter who you are if you kick the ball around you can’t win.”

The Wild Things were up 2-0 in the second inning and then took control in the third. A double, walk, error, and a two-run home run by Matt Sutton brought home four runs and pushing the lead to 6-0.

In the top of the fifth, the Sliders strung together three consecutive hits by Bryan Bonner, Stephen Flora, and Jonnie Knoble. Making the score to 6-2, however that is as close as they would get.

Chris Demons made sure the Wild Things put the game out of reach. Demons hit a solo home run in the sixth, and a two-run double in the eighth after a single and an error.

The Sliders return home to Oestrike Stadium Wednesday for a three game series against in-state rival and east division leading Kalamazoo Kings. First pitch is at 7:05 p.m.
