Mejia, River Bandits Manhandle Kernels
The Quad Cities River Bandits handed the Cedar Rapids Kernels a sound defeat, 14-2, at Veterans Memorial Stadium. Yonathan Mejia was a main contributor to the win. He was 3-4 with a home run, a double, and a walk, while scoring 2 runs and driving in 4 for Quad Cities. Reliever Juan Vélez picked up the win. His record improves to 3-1. Kevin Erickson took the loss. The first-place River Bandits are now 85-49, the Kernels 73-61.

Quad Cities used a timely hit from Philip Clarke to get the win. The designated hitter delivered a bases-clearing triple in the top of the seventh inning to put the River Bandits on top, 5-1. It was his only hit in 5 at-bats, but it was a game-changer.

"We did more than enough to get the win," said Mejia.
