ROCHESTER, Minn. -- One out of two isn't bad considering how things have gone much of the season for the Thunder Bay Border Cats.
The Border Cats and Rochester Honkers split a Saturday Northwoods League doubleheader at Mayo Field, with Rochester taking the first game 3-1 before Thunder Bay closed the day with a 6-3 victory.
In the opener, Honkers starter Spencer Greer (W, 5-1) allowed a run in the top of the first but stymied Thunder Bay's bats the rest of the way, tossing a complete game four-hitter.
The lack of support spoiled a strong outing from Border Cats starter Charles Thielmann (L, 2-4), who pitched all six innings allowing just three runs.
Thunder Bay (8-22) got even in the second half of the twinbill.
Already leading 3-2, the Border Cats broke the second game wide open in the top of the sixth, scoring three runs in the frame. The outburst was capped by a two-run double off the bat of Rob Paller.
Paller led Thunder Bay offensively, driving home three runs to boost his team leading total to 45. Jordan Serena also drove in a pair.
Devin McLemore (W, 4-3) worked three plus innings of relief, only surrending a lone run in the final inning.
Thunder Bay and Rochester (15-16) conclude the series on Sunday.
