The Bowling Green Hot Rods set a new team record for most hits in a single game as they walloped the Lake County Captains 17-6 in a seven-inning game Sunday.

The game was only seven innings long because it followed the completion of a suspended game from April 19. The Hot Rods won that game, too, by a score of 8-4.

Bowling Green’s 25 hits in the second game eclipsed the team’s old record of 23 hits in a single game, achieved April 15, 2012, against Lake County. Their 17 runs were the most scored by the Hot Rods in a game since Bowling Green plated 20 against the Dayton Dragons on July 1, 2012.

Everyone in the Hot Rods lineup had at least one hit except for Miles Mastrobuoni, who went 0-for-5. Lucius Fox and Eleardo Cabrera each had four hits, while four others — Robbie Tenerowicz, Jesus Sanchez, Michael Brosseau and Adrian Rondon — each had three hits. Sanchez, Rondon and Fox homered.

Interestingly, the Hot Rods didn’t draw a single base on balls. The Captains walked five times.

The Captains scored their runs in two innings — three in the 2nd and three in the 6th. Emmanuel Tapia was responsible for three of those runs via a 6th-inning homer.
