The St. Cloud Rox (16-21) started the second half of the regular season with a 2-1 loss to the Huskies in Duluth.

Sean Ross hit his first career home run with the Rox. St. Cloud pitcher Evan Johnson struck out six batters and allowed just three hits in five innings. Connor Aube registered a multi-hit game for the Rox.

The scoring began in the top of the third inning, when Ross hit a home run to left field and put St. Cloud up 1-0. Duluth tied the game in the bottom of the fifth inning, before claiming their first lead of the game in the sixth.

The Rox had runners on the corners with only one out in the eighth inning but grounded into a double play to end the scoring opportunity.

The Rox will host the Duluth Huskies Thursday night at 7:05 pm at Joe Faber Field in St. Cloud (Radio: 1390 KXSS) with fireworks following the game.
