Miners Tame Wild Things
MARION -- Following a 2-4 road trip to start the second half, including a 17-inning loss at Lake Erie, the Southern Illinois Miners needed a strong start from Preston Vancil to open a brief homestand against Washington.
Vancil delivered that and more with a brilliant three-hit shutout, striking out seven along the way.
The two teams will square off again Friday night at Rent One Park.
