Rogues trounce Bees, stay perfect
The Medford Rogues remained undefeated on the season with a 12-4 win over the California Bees Saturday night at Harry & David Field.
One day after Omar Ortiz hit a bases-clearing double to spark a blowout win Aki Buckson did the same, smacking a double in the fourth to score Ortiz, Medford native Josh Berman and Johnny Radomskiy and give the Rogues a 4-2 lead.
Brice Foster pitched four innings of two-hit ball and struck out three to pick up the win.
“I think the team is exceptional," Rogues coach Sean Gallagher said. "We’ve got some experienced guys who are really, really polished. And we’ve got some guys who are still green, so it’s a good mesh of the older guys, the guys who have more experience, teaching the younger guys. I am just trying to bring the energy so that they all have fire. They get out there and play fearlessly."
BJ Wyche, who came on in relief Friday, started on the mound for the Rogues and went four innings. He struck out five but did not factor into the decision.
