Crushers shoot past Beach Bums, 7-3

The Lake Erie Crushers posted six doubles including four in a five-run third to defeat the Traverse City Beach Bums 7-3 on Thursday night at All Pro Freight Stadium, taking the series in the process.

The Bums picked up a pair of runs in the eighth inning on an RBI groundout from Chris Cowell and a RBI single from Rossi made it 7-3, but would never legitimately threaten.

The Beach Bums will now continue their six-game road trip with the start of a three game series against the Rockford Aviators on Friday night.
