Nelson Cruz slammed 2 homeruns and had 3 RBI and Max Scherzer reeled off a total of 18 strikeouts as the Olt RiverGoats outscored the Mays Hayes Steals Home 4 to 3.

The Olt fans enjoyed the offense provided by Cruz. He popped a two-run clout over the fence in the 1st inning and blasted a solo shot (his 4th of the season) in the 6th inning. Mays Hayes threatened in the 9th but Olt was able to put down the rally.

The win was credited to Scherzer(2-1) who went 8 and 2/3 innings allowing 3 runs. Trevor Rosenthal recorded his 2nd save. The loss was charged to Jose Quintana(1-1). He served up 3 gopher balls in 5 innings.

When asked about his strikeout total for the game, Scherzer offered, 'The fan's really got into it. It is fun to see them tally up the strikeout totals up there in the stands. Fortunately, I kept them busy this afternoon - of course, it would be all for naught without the 'W'.'
