June 27, 2006 - KALAMAZOO, Mich. – The RiverHawks offense chased Kalamazoo Kings starting pitcher Jeremy Dow after just two innings and one run scored. But five Kalamazoo relievers gave up just one run over the remaining seven innings and the RiverHawks lost 4-2.

The RiverHawks got on the board first when Joe Anthonsen scored on a wild pitch in the second inning. Kalamazoo responded with a 2-run third inning. After a lead-off walk, the Kings got three straight singles and an RBI groundout.

Rockford tied it in the fourth. After a two-out walk to Stephen Holdren, Gooby Gerlits doubled him home.

The 2-2 tie lasted until the sixth inning. After Garrett Bauer hit Pete Pirman with two outs, Justin Carroll followed with his fourth home run. Bauer (3-3), took the loss despite striking out six in six innings of work.

Daniel Caldwell (1-2) got the win by pitching a scoreless sixth inning. Brad Blackwell pitched out of a two-on, two-out jam in the ninth for his ninth save of the season.

The ‘Hawks will play the rubber game and go for the series win on Wednesday with a 5:35 start time. The RiverHawks will return to Loves Park for a three-game series with Traverse City starting on a Miller Lite Thirsty Thursday.
