By WSIL Sports

 MARION-- The Southern Illinois Miners opened a three game series with league-leading Gateway.  The Grizzlies struck early in the first for a run, and it stayed 1-0 for most of the way, until the Miners erupted for four runs in the eighth to grab the lead for good.  Jon Eisen and Phil Butler each had a pair of two run doubles.  It was win number 501 for Miners manager Mike Pinto

Pinto recently celebrated his 500th win over the weekend, a series clinching, extra-inning victory over Evansville.
