« Back
September 3, 2006 - SAUGET, Ill. ­– The Rockford RiverHawks again struggled to come away with a victory, falling to the Gateway Grizzlies, 4-1, on Sunday.

Rockford is now 2-8 since clinching a playoff spot on August 25.

The RiverHawks got their lone run in the second inning when Bo Flowers tied the game with a leadoff home run, his fourth of the year.

David Arnold broke the 1-1 tie with a two-run blast off Dave Dowling in the seventh. One of the runs was charged to Adam Kroft (6-3) who made his team-record 43rd appearance of the season.

The Grizzlies added an insurance run in the eighth inning on a hit batter, an error, and a wild pitch.

Tanner Watson, slated to be the game two starter in the Frontier League West Division Championship Series on Thursday, pitched four innings of two-hit ball. His outing was cut short by a pitch count so he would be rested for the playoffs.

Nathan Roush (6-5) pitched a complete game for Gateway, giving up just five hits while striking out five and walking two.

Rockford has now lost the first two games of this series without ever holding the lead. The RiverHawks will try to avoid the sweep on Monday in the final game of the regular season beginning at 7:05.
