Mike Hall hit a two-run home run in the bottom of the seventh inning to send the fans home early on the Bandits opening night.

Hall was 3-for-5 at the plate to lead Manitowoc. Tony Jandron, who just finished his senior year at St. Norbert, finished 2-for-4 at the plate with a two-run homer in the second inning and three RBI total in the game. Brad Liermann was 2-for-4.

Matt Phipps received the win for Manitowoc, striking out two and giving up three earned runs in three innings.
