Quad Cities clobbers Burlington in Monday matinee

Tucker wasn’t the only River Bandit to steal three bases in the game. Second baseman Aaron Mizell also swiped three. Shortstop Antonio Nunez stole two bags.*

River Bandits starter Alex Winkelman (3-1) got the win despite giving up three runs on five hits, one walk and a wild pitch in 5.2 innings. He struck out six.

Bees rightfielder Jared Foster went 2-for-4 with a double and a run batted in.

*The Midwest League record for most stolen bases by a team in a single game is 11. The Mattoon Indians did it in 1949, and the Quad City Angels did it in 1964.
