n Intimidators win
The Kannapolis Intimidators blew the game open early on Friday night, beating the Bowling Green Hot Rods, 10-4, in the first ever meeting between the two clubs at Fieldcrest Cannon Stadium.
Bowling Green, formerly the Columbus Catfish, took a short-lived and early lead, before the Intimidators pounced on starter Frank De Los Santos for seven runs. Drew Garcia and Brandon Short helped to power a five-run fourth inning to put Kannapolis in front for good.
Garcia gave the Intimidators their first lead of the game, driving a 0-2 pitch the other way for a bases-loaded two-out single to give Kannapolis a 4-2 advantage. Short followed with a three-run homer to bury the Hot Rods.
