Friday’s home win at Mahoney Park was the Cards’ third this season against 10 losses.

Jordan Robinson made his first appearance on the mound this season and pitched the remaining three innings, giving up three runs – 2 earned – on four hits and one walk. He struck out batters to end the fourth and fifth innings.
Robinson was also strong in the field turning an unassisted double play in the first inning. The Cards turned a second double play in the sixth inning when David Candy caught a hard line drive at short and threw to Ben Zwolak at third to record the final Majors out of the game.
Offence came throughout the order with Michael Ssemanda and Robinson both getting two hits. Robinson also had three runs-batted-in.
