MANKATO — Mankato MoonDogs first baseman Levi Scott went 3 for 7 with two doubles, a home run and five RBIs on Sunday in a two-game sweep over the Thunder Bay Border Cats at Franklin Rogers Park.
The MoonDogs won the games 9-4 and 6-3.
Scott, a University of Texas-Arlington product, is batting .343 with seven doubles, four home runs and 18 RBIs during the Northwoods League season, giving the MoonDogs some consistency in the middle of the order.
"Overall, I think everybody did their part," Scott said. "You couldn't ask more out of the pitchers, great offense and defense. You couldn't have asked for a better day."
The MoonDogs use two big innings to win the first game. They had 10 hits include home runs by Scott and third baseman Tanner Rockwell.
Rockwell's homer came as part of a five-run third inning. Making his first start of the season, Rockwell followed up Brinn Bell's RBI double by launching the ball over the left-center wall. Rockwell finished the game 3 for 3 with a walk and two RBIs.
Left fielder Brett Murray kept the inning going with an RBI double, and catcher Dalton DeLeon also drove in a run to give the MoonDogs a 5-0 lead.
The next inning belonged to Scott. After a pair of leadoff walks, Scott got ahold of a Michael Daley pitch and drove it a long way over the left field wall.
Bell also had a multiple-hits game. The Blackhawk Community College player went 2 for 3 with two doubles, an RBI and three runs scored.
MoonDogs starter Garrett Ring got his first win of the season, pitching 4 2/3 innings and allowing two earned runs on one hit and five strikeouts. Jacob Westerhouse came in the fifth inning and earned his team-leading third save of the season.
The teams played two seven-inning games.
