Bowling Green, KY - To begin a four-game series with the Great Lakes Loons, the Bowling Green Hot Rods increased their season-long win streak to six with a 12-3 rout on Friday night at Bowling Green Ballpark.

For the fifteenth time this year, the Hot Rods scored double-digit runs in a game, plating 12 runs on 15 hits.

The Hot Rods were led by shortstop Lucius Fox along with outfielder Jesus Sanchez and infielder Mike Brosseau with three hits apiece.

Fox scored three runs while Sanchez drove in four runs while scoring twice and Brosseau plated three runs on a pair of run-scoring doubles.

Bowling Green got two hits apiece from outfielder Joshua Lowe and catcher Danny De La Calle along with a RBI double by outfielder Garrett Whitley and a single with two runs batted in from first basemen Bobby Melley .

On the pitching side, starter Angel Yepez made his first start with the Hot Rods in 15 months and struck out six batters in 3.2 innings of work. Yepez gave up five hits and one run.

In earning the victory in relief, lefty Kenny Rosenberg (W, 3-6) finished the game and struck out eight batters in 5.1 innings of work. He gave up two runs (one earned) on just four hits.  

With the win, Bowling Green built off their first three-game series sweep at home this year against the Dragons and has now won six straight games, their longest win streak of the season. It is the longest win streak for the Hot Rods since they won nine straight games on two separate occasions in July last season.

They are now two-games over .500 (9-7) for the first time in the second half.

The Hot Rods will try to continue their winning ways on Saturday in Southcentral Kentucky with the second of four games against the Great Lakes Loons.  

Bowling Green will send a pitcher that has yet to be determined to the mound while the Loons will counter with righty AJ Alexy.  

First pitch is scheduled for 6:35 PM.
