Athletics Solve Hollers, 6-4
The New Jersey Athletics racked up a win at Johnson & Johnson Field, bumping off the West Virginia Hollers, 6-4. Jesús Cruz, who started for New Jersey, pitched effectively for his team. New Jersey reliever Pat Carlson was the winner. His record is now 4-5. Hoon Yi took the loss. Joe Berry converted his 31st save in 43 tries.

Had Stu Edwards not delivered a key base hit in the bottom of the seventh, the outcome might have been different. Instead, with two down and a runner on 2nd, Edwards hit a run-scoring single. That made the score 3-2, in favor of the Athletics.

"I'm just happy to help the team win," Cruz told the New Jersey Observer.

The Athletics bumped their record to 76-63 with this latest triumph.
