Explorers Roll to 8-3 Win Over Danger
It was a fun time at Multnomah Stadium, where the New Mexico Danger and Oregon Explorers tangled.

The Oregon Explorers powered past the New Mexico Danger, 8-3, at Multnomah Stadium. Sander Mertens belted 2 home runs. He drove in 3 runs and scored twice, to lead the charge. Nate Simpson got the win, improving to 2-1. He worked 9 innings, giving up 3 runs on 11 hits, while striking out 6 and walking 0.

Mertens had a game-changing home run in the bottom of the sixth. On a 0-2 fastball from Jonathan Davis, he banged a solo home run to left, giving the Explorers a 4-3 lead. It was the 7th home run of the year for Mertens.

"I'm just looking for a good pitch that I can hit well," said Mertens. "And not try to do too much."

The win brings the Explorers to 9-4, a promising start as the team looks to return to the playoffs.
