DES MOINES — Round Rock Express third baseman Will Middlebrooks hit a home run in the second inning to help lead his club past the Iowa Cubs 10-9 Monday at Principal Park.
The Liberty-Eylau product has belted four homers on the season and leads the team. He went 2-of-3 from the plate Monday evening as he had an RBI and scored a run along with one strikeout.
Middlebrooks is second on the team with 15 hits. He has a .313 batting average that is third-best on the Express, and his 14 RBI are the best for the Triple-A affiliate of the Texas Rangers.
