Etheridge, Rogues capture nonleague win in 10th
Nathan Etheridge's game-winning single in the bottom of the 10th inning lifted the Medford Rogues baseball team past Athletes In Motion 6-5 in a nonleague game at Harry & David Field on Thursday.
Trailing 5-4 in the bottom of the ninth, the Rogues received a big RBI from Ryan Teel to knot the score at 5-all and send the game into extra innings.
After Rogues pitcher Tyler Bennett helped keep Athletes in Motion scoreless in the top of the 10th, Etheridge roped his game-winner to right field to plate Blaine Tanner to lock up the victory.
The Rogues begin another three-game series against the Klamath Falls Gems today at Kiger Stadium. Medford went 0-2 against the Gems earlier this week before the third game of the series was postponed due to rain.
