ROCKFORD (WREX) — Runs were not hard to come by on Sunday at Rivets Stadium as both the Rivets and Dock Spiders combined for 31 runs. The Rivets scored 11 of their 16 runs in the first two innings, looking to put the game away early.

Jackson Dvorak, Sam Beers, Brek Nowik and Johannes Haakenson all had two hits apiece. Beers had five RBI's while Haakenson drove in three as well.

This is the first win for Rockford since July 30, when many of their original roster was still with the team before returning to their respective schools.
