“I really believe our hitting is going to come around,” Tolosky said. “You saw part of that tonight with Chris, who was phenomenal.”
Roenbeck, who finished with five RBI, added a solo homer in the second. In the third, Clinton County cut its deficit to 6-4 with three runs on a walk to Adam Goldfarb and singles by Knowles, Logan Recor and Rascoe.
Roenbeck led the Mariners with three hits, while seven other Clinton County players each had a hit.
“Chris had a huge game, but we were also able to get contributions from different players throughout the lineup and that’s the way we’ve envisioned it,” Tolosky said.
“Defensively, Mitchell Cunningham played a great game at third base.”
The Mariners return to the diamond today with a 6 p.m. game at the Norfolk Rovers.
